Description

Details

Taking the rich pedigree of the its father, the Novation Bass Station II Mono Analogue Synthesiser builds on this solid foundation to offer awesome bass, sharp leads and crisp arpeggios through its re-worked archicture with improved modulation, effects, filters and more, housed in a delectable new design.

Along with its pure analogue signal path the Novation Bass Station II lays out its offerings in modules, with dedicated controls making light work of the main parameters. If you want to get started straight away it comes set up with 64 factory presets, with space for a further 64 of your own. You can also store additional presets on your computer. Also, being a fully class-compliant MIDI device you can connect to other MIDI outboard.

Along with all the controls, the Novation Bass Station II Analogue Synthesiser has been equipped with a great-feeling keyboard comprised of 25 full-sized keys, which offer velocity-sensitivity and assignable aftertouch. Each key has been sprung separately, to be highly responsive and light to the touch.

Bass Station II Synth Engine

The Novation Bass Station II Analogue Synthesiser offers three oscillators, comprised of two independent oscillators, and a sub oscillator (essential for that rich, bass sound), and a noise generator. The independent oscillators can be switched between sine, sawtooth, square and variable pulse width, while the sub oscillator can be set to one or two octaves below the first oscillator.

The Novation Bass Station II gives you two filters, Acid or Classic, which both have a built-in overdrive. The Classic filter offers low pass, high pass and band pass at 12 or 24dB slopes, and Acid gives a 303-esque sound from its diode ladder filter based design.

Along with the filter’s overdrives, the Novation Bass Station 2 has two effects, Distortion and Osc Filter Mod. The Distortion pushes the sound to add new frequencies and add everything from warmth to grit, to your sound. Osc Filter Mod creates an FM-type sound for crunch and sound mulching.

Modulation in the Novation Bass Station II Analogue Synthesizer is comprised of two envelope generators and two low frequency oscillators (LFOs). The envelopes consist of an ADSR amp envelope and a mod envelope. Pitch modulation is altered with LFO One, while LFO Two modulates osc pulse width and filter frequency. In addition the ‘LFO Slew’ function can be used to smooth wave-shapes.

Excellent production tools, and a brilliant way of getting ideas down fast the Novation Bass Station II Synthesiser includes an Arpeggiator and Step Sequencer. The Arpeggiator is capable of running through 32 different rhythmic patterns in different directions with a switchable octave range.

Fantastic mono synth
Posted on 10/09/2015 by Alph05 Purchased this synth to compliment Roland Tr8 and Tb3. Used the original bass station back in the 90's and this synth is as good if not better than the original.

There are actually 70 preset voices all of which can be tweaked, filtered and modified using a huge range of on board lfo' s, oscillators and sweeps. The acoustic range of this synth is absolutely great. You can produce some very tuneful lead sounds, right down to very low frequency, gritty bass rifts. The onboard sequencer and arp allow you to capture up to 32 note sequences, which you can play back and tweak in real time. You can then save off your own patches and modified voices to spare preset slots.

In terms of integration into a DAW setup, it could not be easier. Simple one plug usb allows you to simply plug and play into your chosen software. I use ableton and it took seconds to setup, so the synth plays straight into ableton, recording midi and raw sound and then ableton can be used to trigger the synth to playback whilst you use the synths on board filters and voices to alter the sound.

This is a mono synth, so remember it doesn't produce polyphonic voices and It is also a single note synth, so no chord playing etc. this means that it's strength is producing rhythmic, gritty bass sequences; thats the beauty of this synth. Overall, I would highly recommend this synth. It's perfect for house and modern music styles and absolutely fantastic value for money.
