Novation Bass Station II



Create a huge variety of sounds
Two tuneable, syncable analogue oscillators with a selection of four waveforms, plus sub-oscillator, noise and ring modulation.

Enormous bass and shrieking leads
Switch the Classic Filter between low-, high- and band-pass modes with 12 and 24dB/octave slopes.

Improved analogue filter stage
The 24dB Acid Filter is even darker, wetter and smoother than the Classic.

Turn Jekyll to Hyde
Create crunchy, aggressive sounds with true analogue distortion, filter-modulation effects and filter overdrive.

Easily load and save patches
There’s space for 128 patches, and 64 factory sounds are included. Downloadable artist packs cover a huge range of styles and give you even more presets to get inspired, and you can create your own sounds from scratch and save them in any preset slot.

Get instant inspiration
Record notes, ties, rests and rhythms in real time using the step sequencer and arpeggiator, then store them for use with any patch.

Experiment easily
Get hands-on with the comprehensive array of controls, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing.

Flexible modulation
Triangle, sawtooth and square LFO waveforms, as well as sample and hold, and two ADSR envelopes for filter, pitch and pulse width modulation.

Connect to hardware and software
Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware.

Player's keyboard
Full sized 25-note velocity-sensitive keyboard, with fast synth-action action and aftertouch.

Components
Components allows you to backup and restore your templates and sessions in the cloud, enabling access from anywhere in the world. All content can also be saved locally.

Warranty
Wherever you happen to be in the world, you can rely on a two-year warranty if any Novation hardware needs repairing or replacing due to a manufacturing fault. Novation will send you replacement gear in the UK and the US, and they’ll cover the shipping costs both ways. In the UK, they'll send you a replacement before you return your hardware to them.

De Bass station II is een geweldig vervolg op de Bass Station I.
Zeker een aanrader voor low-budget analog synths.

Wat een heerlijk instrument. De klank is erg mooi, warm en organisch en zeer eenvoudig om te bedienen. Het toetsenbord is erg prettig en heeft aftertouch. Er zitten 70 presets welke je zelf kan aanvullen tot 128.
