Novation Analogue Synthesizer, Bass Station 2

The Novation Bass Station II is an analogue mono-synth based on the classic Novation Bass Station but with a much bigger sound, bringing the best elements of the original together with re-worked modulation, effects, filters and more. It has two filters, two oscillators plus a third sub-oscillator, patch save, and an effects section. Add a step sequencer, arpeggiator, full sized keys and a powerful modulation section and you have the makings of a synth that is built for bass, but with a sound-engine that is versatile enough to kick out sharp leads and and crisp arpeggios.

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

The key-mech 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 with your computer over USB. You can even connect an external instrument and run it through Bass Station II's analogue filter and effects.

Firmware update 2.5 (November 2018)

The v2.5 firmware update adds some of the most requested features including filter tracking, paraphonic mode, microtuning and new preset Soundpacks. Installation couldn't be easier from the Novation Components content manager.
 
Paraphonic mode
 Bass Station II is now a paraphonic monosynth, because the pitches of each of the two oscillators can be controlled separately in its single-voice architecture. Two notes can be played at a time rather than just one, and users can get interesting interactions through the Ring and Filter Mod. To learn more, check out our article: Demystify ‘Paraphonic'. 
 
Filter tracking
 Filter tracking was one of the most requested features. The filter includes variable keyboard tracking in Bass Station II v2.5 – the best for matching higher notes to increased brightness.
 
Envelope retriggering
 Bass Station II's secret sound-design weapon is envelope retriggering. It’s now possible to configure envelopes to retrigger once the decay stage has ended, opening up a whole range of new possibilities.
 
Oscillator error
 Oscillator error introduces a small and adjustable random detune on each note-on event. This can be used to generate some very beautiful, subtle (or not) musical dissonance, very much in the same way that vintage synths do (because of the looser tolerance of their electronic components). Paraphonic mode makes it as dramatic as possible.
 
Microtuning editing
 The frequency triggered by each key press can be completely controlled, giving scales another dimension.
 
New presetsTwo new Soundpacks are in Components: Silver and Sinevibes. Silver's presets explore the v2.5 features and inspire new tracks and sound design. Sinevibes, designed by Sinevibes’ founder Artemij Pavlov, gives 101 classic Bass Station II presets.

 
Warm greetings
 Bass Station II can now support a custom message display at start-up.
