Novation V-Station Virtual Analogue Poly Synth (Serial Number Download)
The Novation V-Station is a polyphonic soft-synth for Mac and PC. It has the same real 3-oscillator flexibility as the award winning K-Station, with powerful filters, 8-voice polyphony and simultaneous Novation FX.
This is a download product, we will send you links to download the latest version along with the serial number for authorisation.
PLUG-IN FOR PC AND MAC
The V-Station gets the same real 3-oscillator flexibility as the award winning K-Station, with awesome liquid analogue filters, 8-voice polyphony, rippin' simultaneous FX and the kind of phatt sounds only a genuine Novation synth can offer. It's got masses of sophistication, acres of program locations and the flexibility of integrating it with your favourite sequencer/disc-based recording set-up.
EASY TO USE, POWERFUL IN OPERATION
And getting the best from the new V-Station is easy. All the primary sound-shaping controls are there on the main screen - clear, concise and refreshingly simple. Recall a named factory preset, tweak it to get 'your sound' and instantly save it in any of the 400 program locations. Need more? Just click and you'll find additional functions and controls on the other three screens.
THE ULTIMATE K-STATION/A-STATION PARTNER
For ultimate flexibility, why not partner a V-Station with one of Novation's award-winning hardware synths? As sounds created in the V-Station can be downloaded into the K-Station and vice versa, harmonising your gigging/studio set-ups and building mega-sound libraries is snap.
ANALOG MODELLED OSCILLATORS
Three powerful oscillators provide all the classic waveforms, including a sine wave for those sub-bass floor-shaking grooves. All waveforms feature a 'Double' facility which provides twin waveforms with no loss of polyphony. Oscillators may be set to Unison or Synced operation and can utilise FM for the generation of metallic or percussive timbres. A noise source is also included in the waveform engine.
NOVATION WARM LIQUID FILTERS
Delivering the rich liquid sound of an analogue filter. Selectable low-pass, 12dB or 24dB cut-off curves with resonance and overdrive make it easy to recreate anything from a distorted TB303 to tight, rounded bass patch.
UNLIMITED MULTI-TIMBRAL PARTS
The V-Station delivers eight voices for each instance that is used. Call up an instance of the V-Station and there are immediately a further eight voices available with a new sound if desired. This ability to use multiple 'instances' allows the V-Station to run as many multi-timbral parts as the power of the host computer will allow.
INTEGRATED EFFECTS ON EACH INSTANCE
Novation set the industry standard with the famed Supernova synthesizer for providing a complete set of powerful effects on each part on the multi-timbral synthesizer. The V-Station adopts this sound structure which makes for six simultaneous effects per instance. The effects include a distortion unit that adds edge for harder sounds, a synchronised stereo chorus or phaser for spatial effects and a reverb that adds an extra dimension of realism. A synchronised panner and the delay engine complete the comprehensive line-up.
ARPEGGIATE, TWEAK AND SYNC TO THE BEAT
An arpeggiator with programmable speed, synchronisation and sweep range is available within each instance. Comprehensive synchronisation of time-based effects can be easily implemented. For example the delay effect may be set to a quarter note repeat whilst another LFO (built in to the effects unit) can sweep the phaser every two bars. All parameters respond to MIDI controllers which can be recorded in realtime on a track on the selected sequencer - set up a few instances, hit a single key and trigger a wall of sound. All running arpeggiators and LFOs can be individually synchronised to MIDI clock in different time signatures.
SHIPS WITH 200 STUNNING FACTORY SOUNDS
Covering a huge sonic range from searing leads to passionate pads, from delicate electric pianos to phatt funky bass. They're all there.
