The Novation Bass Station 2 synthesizer is reviewed in the latest video from the Sonic Lab.
In the Bass Station 2 review, Nick Batt digs deep into the new analog synth and explains why “It’s quite a lot of synth for the money.”
- Analogue synth: brand new version of the classic Bass Station: Bass Station II has a pure analogue audio signal path, reviving the spirit of the original Bass Station with an all-new design optimized for bass
- Two distinct analogue filters: In addition to the original Classic Bass Station filter, there’s a brand new Acid diode ladder filter for squelchy 303-esque bass sounds
- Load and save patches: 64 factory patches on-board with room for 64 more of your own: save more to your computer via USB
- Pattern-based Step Sequencer and Arpeggiator: Bass Station II has an arpeggiator with a programmable step sequencer
- Instant hands-on control: Instant hands-on control of the sound engine via a traditional analogue synth control panel
- Two Oscillators plus an additional Sub Oscillator: Bass Station II has two sync-able, tune-able oscillators with four selectable waveforms, plus a third sub-oscillator for generating enormous bass sounds
- Analogue effects section: Bass Station II includes fully analogue distortion and filter-modulation effects and a separate filter overdrive to add aggression and crunch
- Powerful modulation section featuring two Envelopes and two LFOs: Two ADSR envelopes for amp, filter, pitch and pulse width modulation alongside two LFOs with waveforms including triangle, sawtooth, square and sample & hold
The Bass Station 2 has a street price of $500.
