Novation BASS-STATION-II
Bass Station II 25-Key Analog Mono-Synth

 

Novation's 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 much more.
