    Novation Bass Station II Analogue Synth
    The Novation Bass Station II is an analogue mono synth based on the classic original BassStation but re-worked for the 21st century.
    The Novation Bass Station II is an analogue mono synth with a talent for bass, but a sound-engine that is versatile enough to kick out sharp leads and crisp arpeggios. It brings the best elements of the original BassStation into a brand new design with re-worked modulation, effects, filters and more: like the BassStation, but much, much bigger.

    The signal path is pure analogue - including the effects section. The hardware has been laid out in modules with dedicated pots, switches, sliders and buttons for all major parameters. Critically, you can store and recall patches on Bass Station II. It comes with 64 killer factory presets, space for 64 of your own sounds on the hardware, and you can store more on your computer.

    The key-mechanism consists of 25 full-sized keys that are velocity sensitive with assignable aftertouch. It has been developed as a 'synth-action' keyboard, where each key is individually sprung so it is light to the touch and highly responsive to the synth engine. Bass Station II is a fully class compliant MIDI device with MIDI I/O on 5 pin din ports – for connecting to other MIDI outboard – and your computer over USB.

    The Bass Station II Synth Engine: A Brief Overview
    Oscillators: Bass Station II is built on three analogue oscillators and a noise generator. There are two fully independent oscillators plus a sub oscillator (which is the critical component in creating rich, analogue bass sounds). Oscillators One and Two are switchable between sine, sawtooth, square and variable pulse width, and Oscillator Three - the sub osc - can be set to one or two octaves below Oscillator One. It can be square, sine or narrow pulse width, delivering the characteristically 'fat' bass tone.
    Filters: You can select between two discrete filters - 'Acid' or 'Classic' - each with a built in overdrive for pushing filter tones from dry, to warm, to nasty! The 'Classic' BassStation filter can be switched between low pass, high pass and band pass at 12 or 24dB slopes. The 'Acid' filter is based on a diode ladder filter design that delivers a characteristically 303-esque sound that is designed to squelch!

    Effects: Bass Station II has two effects (not including the filter overdrive). Analogue distortion drives circuit components to add new frequencies to the sound. Bass Station II's Distortion function can add gentle warmth, filthy granularity and anything in between. The second effect is 'Osc Filter Mod' which creates a distinctive FM-type sound by using Oscillator Two to modulate the filter frequency. This is very good at crunchy, sound-mulching effects that substantially fatten up bass and lead patches.

    Modulation: There are two envelope generators and two low frequency oscillators (LFOs). The first envelope is an ADSR amp envelope and the second is a mod envelope that can be used to modulate filter frequency, oscillator pitch and osc pulse width. LFO One is dedicated to pitch modulation whereas LFO Two is used to modulate osc pulse width and filter frequency. Although it looks like there are four LFO waveforms, the 'LFO Slew' function can be used freely to sculpt LFOs into smoother wave-shapes.
    Arpeggiator and Step Sequencer: Bass Station II's Arpeggiator and Step Sequencer are killer performance and production tools. The Arp can be directed to run through 32 different rhythmic patterns in different directions with a switchable octave range. You can also engage the Step Sequencer. Up to four sequences can be played in – with legato and rests – and played back using any one of the 32 rhythmic patterns. As well as getting ideas down quickly and programming performance sequences, this is a brilliant way to preview patches whilst you are editing your Bass Station II Analogue Mono Synthesizer.

    ANALOGUE MODELLED OSCILLATORS AND THAT SPECIAL BASS STATION SOUND
    The character of the two oscillators has been carefully crafted to provide the classic sawtooth and square waveforms of the original instruments. The filter has been designed to deliver the elusive character from of the original Bass Station. Switch from 24dB to 12dB mode and the filter controls behave in the same manner as the controls of Roland's classic TB303.
    ENHANCED CLASSIC PANEL FOR GREATER TWEAKABILITY
    The simplicity of the original Bass Station panel was a key factor in the popularity of the instrument. The original front panel has been 3D modelled and additional controls have been added for ease of use. The Filter envelope has its own set of ADSR controls and OSC1 and OSC2 have their own section for pitch modulation and PWM control. Finally, all controls receive MIDI controller numbers for the recording and replay of tweaks during a performance.
    SETUP SCREEN
    Accessing the additional parameter editing screen is a single mouse click away. On the setup screen you'll find extra functions such as Wheel, Aftertouch and Breath control along with a variety of system-wide settings.
    INSTANCES LIMITED ONLY BY THE POWER OF THE PC OR MAC IN USE
    The Bass Station delivers a monophonic voice for each instance that is used. Call up an instance of the Bass Station and there is immediately a new bass or lead sound available that will sit beautifully in the mix. The ability to use multiple 'instances' allows the Bass Station to run as many multi-timbral parts as the power of the host computer will allow.
    100 STUNNING SOUNDS CAREFULLY CRAFTED FROM THE NOVATION FACTORY
    The multi-award-winning Bass Station Rack came packed with awesome presets that became the soundtrack for many of the dance hits of the 90s. The Bass Station plug-in is shipped with the classic originals along with many more totalling 100 sounds for immediate gratification. The patches cover a huge sonic range from screaming leads to phatt funky basses.

    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.
