Featureful and solid poly synth
dromer, 04.02.2020
Having been in the market for a high-end poly synth for a while I was very excited when the Summit was initially announced.

For me it ticked all the boxes of what I was looking for: many-voice polyphonic, extensive editing capabilities with plenty of physical controls, interesting modern features, integrated effects, and good midi implementation.

The Summit fulfills all of these for me. The machine has a very solid build with firm and flexible controls when needed. The midi implementation is wonderful and updating the firmware (and managing the patches) works perfectly with the Components website. No fancy drivers or platform-dependent software installs necessary! (I use Linux which is always an issue with these things)

The internal engine is absolutely amazing. Essentially you get 4 different synths: a 16 voice poly, 2 independent 8 voice poly's, and one multi-timbral 8 voice poly. The expanded filter design also allows for more sound design options than the original peak and the onboard effects are very good. I'm looking forward to future updates as I assume the FPGA will allow for future expansions of the engine and effects.

In conclusion I think this will be a permanent addition to the studio!

Best looking synth on the market
Kippers, 25.01.2020
It is hard to fault the summit. The sounds are diverse, easy to use (haven’t looked at the manual yet), solid feel all round.
The summit fit my needs perfectly: a poly synth, lots of control knobs/sliders, efficient use of real estate, good size keyboard, multitimbral and most importantly diverse sounds. The digital oscillators with analog signal path is an excellent blend of tech.

One small issue is that the keys are not perfectly aligned, but It’s not obvious and doesn’t affect the feel of the keyboard when playing.

Awesome Synth!
danireland , 22.06.2020
I upgraded from Peak to this and absolutely no regrets! It is such a difference to have a all-in-one playable instrument on an X-stand versus multiple bits connected to the peak etc on my table. Overall the sound is superb, rich and the workflow is easy to get into and fun to tweak with summit due to the extensive hands-on controls. The left hand screen was a potential worry for me but actually the workflow fits with it perfectly and you use it to setup areas of the sound but then shift back to the hands-on controls after. So there is not too much going back and forth I found. Keybed feels really nice too! All in all , highly highly recommended! The recent addition of wavetable editor was great also!
