Novation BassStation II, Classic Analogue Synthesiser

Bass Station II is an analogue 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 analogue 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.

Analogue synth: brand new version of the classic Bass Station
Bass Station II has a pure analogue audio signal path, reviving the spirit of the original Bass Station with an all-new design optimised for bass.

Two distinct analogue filters
A brand new 'Acid' filter joins the 'Classic' original Bass Station filter -('Classic' switches between low, hi and band pass with 12 and 24dB slopes).

Load and save patches
Bass Station II ships with 64 factory patches and a further 64 user slots. Patch dump enables you to archive and swap sounds.

Pattern-based Step Sequencer and Arpeggiator
Bass Station II has an arpeggiator with a programmable step sequencer that enables you to store and call up patterns and quickly sketch-out ideas.

Dedicated Tweakable Controls
Analogue synth layout includes dedicated controls for all major parameters enabling instant hands-on control of the sound engine.

Two Oscillators plus an additional Sub Oscillator
Bass Station II has two sync-able, tune-able oscillators with four selectable waveforms, plus a third sub-oscillator for generating enormous bass sounds.

Analogue effects section
Bass Station II includes fully analogue distortion and filter-modulation effects and a separate filter overdrive to add an aggressive, crunchy sound-quality.

Flexible modulation featuring 2 Envelopes and 2 LFOs
LFO waveforms include triangle, sawtooth, square and sample & hold. Two ADSR envelopes are available for filter, pitch and pulse width modulation.

MIDI I/O and USB connectivity
Bass Station II can be connected to your music software as well as your MIDI compatible hardware.

Players 'synth-action' keyboard with aftertouch
The keyboard mechanism is a two-octave (25 note) velocity sensitive synth-action keyboard with full-size keys and assignable aftertouch.

Oscillators

  • Osc 1
  • Osc 2
  • Sub Osc (3)

Osc 1 & 2

Select between waveforms:

  • sine
  • triangle
  • sawtooth
  • square/variable pulse width

Features

  • Sync 1 & 2
  • Detune
  • Octave range
  • Pitch bend
  • Pitch modulation from Mod Envelope and/or LFO 1
  • Pulse width modulation from Mod Envelope and/or LFO 2

Sub Osc (3) which is tracked to Osc 1

Select independently between waveforms:

  • Sine
  • Square
  • Narrow pulse

Features

  • All modulation and tuning tracked to Osc 1
  • Independent octave select

Mixer

  • Osc 1 level
  • Osc 2 level
  • Sub Osc level
  • Noise generator level
  • Ring modulation depth
  • External signal level

Filter

Two filter types

  • Acid type (diode ladder filter design)
  • Classic type (derived from original Bass Station)

Features

  • Cutoff
  • Resonance
  • Overdrive
  • Filter frequency to Mod Envelope depth
  • Filter frequency to LFO 2 depth

Select 'Classic' filter between:

  • Low pass
  • Band pass

  • 12dB slope
  • 24dB slope

Envelopes

Two ADSR Envelopes (Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release)

  • Amp Envelope
  • Mod Envelope
  • Combined control of both Envelopes

Select triggering mode between:

  • Single trigger (holds envelope state when new note is played)
  • Multi trigger (re-triggers with every new note played)
  • Autoglide (engages portamento)

There is also a VCA limiter

LFO

Two LFOs each selectable between:

  • Triangle
  • Sawtooth
  • Square
  • Sample and hold
  • Both LFOs independently adjustable between rate and delay time
  • Key sync LFO 1 & 2
  • LFO slew on LFO 1& 2 (low pass filter on the LFO waveform)

Effects

  • Distortion send
  • Oscillator filter mod amount (FM effect created by Oscillator 2 modulating filter freq)

Step Sequencer/Arpeggiator

Arpeggiator

  • Up to 32 different patterns
  • Select between 1-4 octave range
  • Swing function
  • Select direction:
    • up
    • down

    • up / down 2
    • As played
    • Random
  • Latch (hold the arpeggiator)

Step Sequencer

  • Up to four sequences
  • Assign one of 32 preset rhythms or create your own
  • insert rests or legato (slide)
  • Sequencer re-trigger function

Portamento

  • Adjust glide time
  • Single trigger or re-trigger modes
