analogue monosynth reborn.
there sounds this warm, fat and dirty. Bass Station II is our pure analogue
monosynth. We based it on our classic Bass Station, then enhanced every area to
make it even bigger, angrier and more versatile.
It has two
tuneable oscillators, a sub-oscillator for enormous bass, plus noise and ring
modulation. It also gives you two distinct analogue filter types: the classic
multi-mode filter and a new acid filter, for a massive variation in sonic
to put a call out to a handful of our Bass Station II artists to have them
create some patches for a new soundpack. Here’s the roster of analogue noodlers
who got involved: Nite Jewel, Cian from Super Furry Animals, Jeremy from
Everything Everything, Jason Miles, Victor Parris Mitchell, Adam Freedland.
can sound as mellow or aggressive as you want. Seek out sweet spots with the
filter mod to make it sing. Crank the distortion and it will growl with pent up
anger. Push the resonance to self oscillation to create shrieking leads. Bass
Station II can sound however you feel.
Controls for Complex Design
We put as
many controls as possible onto Bass Station II, so you can totally lose
yourself in discovering and creating new sounds. Of course, we also laid out
all those controls in the clearest and most useful way, to keep sound design as
straightforward and fun as possible.
Bass Station II with 64 diverse patches that showcase its huge sonic variation.
We also left 64 slots free, so you can easily save and load your own patches on
the unit, or in the free librarian software.
Station II’s pattern-based arpeggiator and step sequencer are a fun and
immediate way to find new inspiration. The sequencer lets you record your own
notes, ties, rests and rhythms in real time, then store them, recall them and
use them with any patch you like. Easily and automatically sync them to your
music software or hardware setup, or even add swing to get your groove going.
Just About Anything
Station II is fully class compliant, so you can plug into anything via USB and
start playing. It also has MIDI I/O on 5 pin din ports, so you can connect your
other MIDI gear. You can even connect an external instrument and run it through
Bass Station II’s analogue filter and effects.
