Free Instruments For Ableton Live Feature Massive, Filthy Sounds Of Bass Station II

Francis_Preve_Bass-Station-IIProducer and sound designer Francis Prève has released a free Ableton Live Instrument based on the Novation Bass Station II.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“A few months back, I reviewed the Novation Bass Station II for Keyboard Magazine.

As modern analog synths go, the BSII packs a lot of analog power into a small footprint. So while I had it in my studio, I couldn’t resist snagging a few samples of it to share with everyone.

For those who aren’t up to speed on the Bass Station II, it’s a dual-oscillator analog monosynth with a sub-oscillator and tons of nifty filtering modes, along with a nasty little distortion. As the name implies, it excels at bass, so that’s the focus of this new pack.”

Here’s Preve’s descriptions of the Bass Station II instruments:

  • Acid – Super-resonant, making great use of the BSII’s “acid” filter mode
  • Big-n-Round – Tons of low end with muted filtering. Great for deep house.
  • Filthy – Massive ‘big room’ bass that highlights the BSII distortion. Works for leads too.
  • PWM – Pulse-width modulation with a touch of resonant fizziness.
  • Rush – Emulates the classic Moog Taurus sound with a long resonant filter sweep.
  • Subby Saw – Percussive filter enveloping on a sawtooth – with sub-osc mixed in for added boom.

Pricing and Availability

The Bass Station II “Six Pack” is free. To download, or for more information, visit Preve’s blog.

  1. Good thing this synth is from Novation. Roland sues people for sampling their synths without a license.
