The analogue monosynth reborn

 

Nothing out 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 possibilities.

 

Create a huge variety of sounds

Two pure analogue, sync-able and tuneable oscillators with four selectable waveforms, plus a third sub-oscillator, noise and ring modulation.

 

Enormous bass and shrieking leads

Switch the multi-mode Classic Filter between low, hi and band pass with 12 and 24dB slopes.

 

Improved analogue filter stage

A 24dB Acid Filter that is even darker, wetter and smoother than the Classic.

 

Turn Jekyll to Hyde

Create crunchy, aggressive sounds with fully analogue distortion, filter-modulation effects and a separate filter overdrive.

 

Easily load and save patches

Comes with 64 patches that cover a huge range of styles, but you can create, save, archive and swap 64 of your own too.

 

Get instant inspiration

Record notes, ties, rests and rhythms in real time using the step sequencer and arpeggiator, then easily store them, recall them and use them with any patch you like.

 

Experiment easily

Get your hands on loads of controls, cleverly arranged for intuitive patch design and sound editing.

 

Flexible modulation

Triangle, sawtooth and square LFO waveforms, as well as sample and hold, and two ADSR envelopes for filter, pitch and pulse width modulation.

 

Connect to hardware and software

Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware.

 

Player's Keyboard

Full sized 25-note) velocity-sensitive keyboard, with a fast synth-action and aftertouch.

 

Store unlimited sounds

Keep as many patches as you like on your Mac or PC using the Librarian Software.
