Berlin Sector, ‘The Softer Side Of The Bass Station II’

Novation-Bass-Station-IISunday Synth Jam: In this track, reader Daniel Davis (aka Carl Sagan’s Ghost) explores “the softer side of the Bass Station II.”

Berlin Sector is a sublime trip into classic Berlin School/space music territory.

The instrumental features two tracks of Bass Station II, recorded into Ableton Live 9, w/ reverb from the Zoom MS-70CDR and delay from the Digitech Timebender:

Davis notes, “The HD Reverb effect (on the Zoom MS-70CDR) is worth the price of the pedal.”

  1. You two sure do the little dickens justice. Its very enjoyable work that shows off how big the thing’s sound really is. I “hate” the compressed user interface on the BS2, but when Novation coined the term “liquid” a while back, it was an honest claim. Their synths really do sit in their own space. I’m going to wind up with a MiniNova yet.

  2. Wow – I’m totally impressed. These are two great examples of BSII sounds. I’m so glad I picked up a BSII, I just haven’t had much time to play with it but that should change soon! Keep up the good work.

  3. The BS2 I looks like a great synth – but it’s person behind the keys that really makes the difference.

    Davis did some MicroKorg tracks a while back that were just as good.

  4. Thanks AnalOG, I appreciate it.

    I love making music with things that many musicians don’t consider to be top of the line.

    In other words, you definitely don’t need a Jupiter 8 or Moog Voyager to make awesome music. 🙂

    I’ll take the Micorkorg vs. Jupiter 8 make-an-album challenge any old day. 😀
