Novation Bass Station ll Analog Keyboard

The Novation Bass Station II is an analog mono-synth based on the classic original Bass Station but re-worked for the 21st century. It has two filters, two oscillators plus a third sub-oscillator, patch save and a fully analog 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 capable of so much more. Bass Station II marks Novation's 21st birthday.


  More than Just a Bass Synth

Bass Station II is an analog 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 Bass Station together with re-worked modulation, effects, filters and more; like the Bass Station, but a much bigger sound.
 

Analog Signal Path, Digital Store/Recall

The signal path is pure analog -- 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.
 

25 Full-Size Velocity-Sensitive Keys

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. 
 

5-Pin MIDI I/O plus MIDI over USB

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 analog filter and effects.
