Bass Station Overview
The Novation Bass Station is a monophonic analog synthesizer with some nice bells and whistles. Don’t let the name limit your opinion on this machine. It works well as a mono lead synth, and it also can operate as part of a polyphonic setup by chaining multiple Bass Stations together.
The Bass Station features 2 oscillators (saw or pulse), a resonant low-pass filter (12 or 24db/octave), 2 ADSR envelopes and an LFO (random, triangle, saw). It can even mix in an external audio source. It can be setup to emulate the famous Roland TB-303 by selecting a single oscillator and using the 12db/octave setting in the filter.
