  1. I have a Bass Station that I bought in the 90s… it still works perfectly and has no issues… The Bass Station II that I got in 2017 already has knobs falling off.

  2. Nice show! Calc’s beats sound bored with Canada. Did the winner of this beat down get to say, “All your Bass Station belong II us?”

  3. No Bass Station but still using the Ultranova regularly. Yes it’s VA, doesn’t snarl like analogue, but maaaan you can get some great sounds out it. And it runs on a USB battery.
