Kick Out Big Sounds with the Novation Bass Station II 25-Key Synthesizer

Reimagining Novation's classic analog monosynth for the new generation of electronic musicians, Bass Station II enhances and improves on the original in every area, making it even bigger, badder, and more versatile. Packing two oscillators, a multimode filter, amp and filter modulation, step sequencing, and an arpeggiator, Bass Station II gives you everything you need to make bleeding-edge basses, leads, pads and FX. Yet despite all that power and adaptability, it couldn't be easier to program and play, thanks to its intuitively arranged controls and a full-sized 25-note keyboard. 128 onboard presets (with 64 factory sounds and downloadable artist patches) let you store, recall, and adapt your favorite sounds.


  • Create a huge variety of sounds: two tuneable, syncable analog oscillators with a selection of four waveforms, plus sub-oscillator, noise, and ring modulation
  • Enormous bass and shrieking leads: switch the Classic Filter between low-, high- and band-pass modes with 12 and 24 dB/octave slopes
  • Improved analog filter stage: the 24 dB Acid Filter is even darker, wetter, and smoother than the Classic
  • Turn Jekyll to Hyde: create crunchy, aggressive sounds with true analog distortion, filter-modulation effects, and filter overdrive
  • Easily load and save patches: There’s space for 128 patches, and 64 factory sounds are included
  • Get instant inspiration: record notes, ties, rests, and rhythms in real time using the step sequencer and arpeggiator, then store them for use with any patch
  • Experiment easily: get hands-on with the comprehensive array 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 fast synth-action action and aftertouch
  • Store unlimited sounds: archive as many patches as you like on your Mac or PC using the Librarian Software
  • AFX Mode allows multiple variations of patch parameters to be assigned to individual keys. This enables the user to effectively have a different patch on each key, bringing even more extensive possibilities to the Bass Station II.
