Vektor – NOVA


Nova presents “Vektor” a unique stringed based cinematic Kontakt instrument thats sets a new standard for creating anything from dramatic epic cues to beautiful minimal tracks.

“Vektor”  allows multiple ways to morph and manipulate the sample sound sources through a unique set of parameters, allowing any idea in your imagination to transfer to sound with ease. From its unique “Filter Movement” and “Source Movement” manipulations to its innovative “drag and drop” capabilities no sound is impossible. Each of the four sound sources can be independently adjusted through a whole range of parameters, making possibilities endless.


Vektor is a powerful instrument crammed with exciting features and beautiful sounds.

At the heart of “Vektor” is 3GBs of samples and 116 beautifully crafted instruments ranging from multi velocity Strings to long dramatic drones. Giving you the ability to push your music to the next level. These categories include:

  • Organic
  • Manipulated Organic
  • Drones
  • Synths
  • FX

Along with multiple organic recorded samples, with instruments like the “Moanful Cello” and “Sul Tasto”, there are wide ranges of manipulate samples that have been morphed by tape machines, classic samplers, amps and fx pedals to give you a whole range of tools at your disposal; some have even been re-recorded in a 13th-century abbey! Which makes them unique.

“Vektor” comes with 201 diverse snapshots. All easily adaptable and are in the categories:

  • Showcase
  • Organic
  • Organic Manipulated
  • Rhythmic
  • Drones
  • String Toolkit
  • Synths
  • Trailer FX

Source Controls

The main section of Vektor contains 4 distinct sources which can be blended together to create unique sounds. Each source has independent controls for EQ, Envelope and Filter accessible by clicking the buttons at the top. Each source has a master volume slider control along with a power button and a solo button. next to these are your tuning (+/- 36 semitones) and panning (-100/+100) control – Click and drag to change the values. Next to these are the Random (Click to randomise the sound source) and the Reverse Buttons (click to play to current sample backwards)

Finally, you have the source select dropdown menu containing 116 instruments and below this, you have the sample display window which shows the current playing waveform. Drag the Start slider to adjust the start position of the sample.

Movement Page (Source)

The movement panel allows you to dynamically and instantly transform your sound in a number of unique ways. Firstly you can click and drag the white dot inside the Source Movement XY pad to instantly blend between the 4 sound sources. This allows you to change the volume of each source in a relative manner very quickly. However, you also have access to controls that will change the blend over time. You can choose to blend horizontally or vertically (or both at the same time) or in a circular motion.

You can choose whether the movement should be in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction and you can choose whether the motion should be in sync with your DAWs tempo or free-running.

Movement Page (Filters)

The movement panel also allows you to control the filter frequency and resonance of each source independently or together. Subtle filter sweeps can be achieved with ease as well as complexity.

Modulation Page

The Modulation Panel gives you everything you need to create dynamic movements and modulation to your sounds. There are 4 LFOs and 4 Envelopes and each one can be assigned to a multitude of different controls.

Effects Page

The Effects Panel contains 9 powerful effects that operate on a global basis including: Chorus, Distortion, Spatial, Phasis, Flair, Convolution, Filter, Replika delay and Lo-Fi

Import Your Own Samples

Vektor comes with an innovative and easy to use drag and drop function. Simply drag and drop your chosen sample into the source window, and it automaps the sample into that source. It’s that easy.


Nearly every element of Vektor can be randomised in creative ways.Simply open up the randomisation page and select the elements you want to randomised by ticking the boxes. You can randomise:

  • Source Voices: Will just randomise with the sample is loaded to each source
  • Source Filters: Will randomise all 4 source filter types and settings
  • All Sources: Will randomise all source samples and filters
  • XY Motion: Will randomise the settings and position of the XY source panel
  • XY Filter: Will randomise the settings and position of the XY filter panel
  • Modulation: Will randomise the settings on the modulation page
  • Effects: Will randomise the settings on the effects page
  • Everything: Will randomise all of the above at the same time.
