Low Pass Filter Comparison - BassStation2 vs. Nord Lead 2X

Postby molson » Wed May 07, 2014 8:33 pm

This is a comparison between the 24db Low Pass Filter on the Novation BassStation 2 Analog Monophonic Synthesizer and the Clavia Nord Lead 2X Virtual Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer.

For the purposes of this comparison the Nord Lead 2X was also run in Mono mode. The comparison uses a sawtooth wave, first on one oscillator alone, and then 2 oscillators utilizing a sawtooth wave.

Both synths were recorded dry at 24bit/44.1k through Steinberg MR816X

Obviously these two synths are different beasts - analog mono vs. virtual analog poly, but I do think it can be helpful to hear a comparison between the basic sounds. I prefer the basic sound of the BassStation to the Nord Lead 2X, but it really depends on your needs. Check it out if your curious:

If you want to make a video that compares the sound of two synths, record them directly instead of through the mic on your phone. Really, that's the number one most basic thing to do in this situation.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have made the change and the video above has been updated with HQ audio recorded at 24bit/44.1k through Steinberg MR816X.
