Novation’s flagship 16-voice 61-key polyphonic synthesizer
It’s accurate to say the Summit in most ways is 2 Novation Peaks with upgraded functionality and a good keyboard. If you are considering the Desktop Module 8-voice Peak at $1399.99, consider the Summit instead. Add a Novation 61SL Keyboard Controller to a Peak and you are spending $100 more and getting half the machine of a Summit.
I think at $2199.99, the Summit immediately qualifies as a very viable mid-range poly synth choice. It has a metal chassis and an internal power supply, essential features for this class of machine in my opinion.
As for similarly priced 16-voice 61-key poly synths, I’d rather have a Summit than a Sequential DSI Prophet Rev2 or a Korg Prologue. I’m a big Sequential DSI fan, so it means a lot for me to say I’d rather have a Summit.
