We're excited to let you know that Novation have announced a brand new analogue synthesizer – the Bass Station II. The original BassStation synthesizer was a hit in the 80s; a 25 key synth with simple controls generated both powerful lead and bass sounds and was even released later as a soft-synth (which is still available today and widely used). The new Bass Station II has been re-modelled to modern standards and includes 3 oscillators, two filters, analogue effects, step-sequencer, arpeggiator and MIDI / USB connectivity.
We can't wait to hear the new synthesizer, with a pure analogue signal and the addition of a sub oscillator and 'Acid' filter (similar to classic 303-influenced, resonance-heavy sounds) it's set to have outstanding sound quality for the £399 price point. There's 64 factory patches to play with out of the box with an additional 64 spaces to fill with your own. You'll be able to shape the sound further with two ADSR envelopes and syncable LFOs too.
