The Bass Station II Synth Engine
Reimagining Novation's classic analogue monosynth for the new generation of electronic musicians, Bass Station II enhances and improves on the original in every area. Packing two oscillators (plus a sub-oscillator and noise generator), a multimode filter, amp and filter modulation, step sequencing and an arpeggiator, Bass Station II gives you everything you need to easily sculpt bleeding-edge basses, leads, pads and FX. 64 factory presets, 64 user slots and downloadable artist-created patches help to keep you inspired, with intuitively arranged controls and full-sized 25-note keyboard to make it quick and easy to make Bass Station II your own.
Bass Station II Key Features
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.
Open up a whole new world of sound design and performance possibilities. Modify your Bass Station II patch on a key-by-key basis. Use it to introduce subtle changes to a sound as you play up and down the keyboard, divide the keyboard into multiple zones, one per key if you like.
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.
Get hands-on with the comprehensive array of controls, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing.
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.
Full-sized 25-note velocity-sensitive keyboard, with fast synth-action action and aftertouch.
