New Novation Bass Station?

Postby vinyl_junkie » Sun Apr 07, 2013 8:29 pm

From the official Novation Facebook page

"Here's a sneak preview of Monday's exciting announcement!"

It has a tune knob and has the paint scheme from the Bass Station/Super Bass Station.

I'm a huge fan of the original Bass Station's, they aren't perfect and I can see why the Eww It Doesn't Sound Like A Moog patrol don't like them but are cheap and have a lovely unique tone.
I hope it's a updated analogue B-Station with super snappy envelopes and that same lovable dirty filter

Hopefully we shall all find out on Monday

I'm curious to see what it is.. it certainly does look like a bass station. Maybe it'll have some fancy new features.. only time will tell.

There's another tiny little picture here:

It's like new synths are crawling out of the woodwork! It will be interesting to see what this one is, too.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

Novation have always been relatively quick on the pulse when it comes to new products. They chased Live and made a name for themselves. They have history in DCO analogue synthesis, and there's serious analogue knowhow on the team, given that you can trace their lineage back to the OSCar.

Plus, they know how to undercut the rivals. If this is a BassStation or similar, well done and another analogue synth to bolster the full-on revival. Arturia and Korg, now maybe Novation? There's a whole new set of choices out there.

In all of this I feel the need to proclaim the microKorg as a proper classic. VA, yes, but it put synths in the hands of the masses. It kindled a market that desperately needed a populist choice, and now we're seeing the next generation of populist choices - a fusion of the MicoKorg's pricepoint and the analogue's history.

Picture looks cold and not phat.

My prediction: 100% chance of DCO's.

If only roland would listen.

Analogue for the masses! Bring it on! 2013 is a watershed year for returning to analogue roots...

Awesome. A BIG plus over the competition: the ability to SAVE PATCHES. Excellent, I might get one :-D

Honestly it kinda makes sense to have many traditional hardware companies move back toward equipment like this mainly because the majority of people using synthesizers are more studio and hobbyist guys than they are live performers.

I'd argue most studio guys don't see the point in buying hardware VA's anymore, well people still seem to like the Viruses but I think that reputation will run thin eventually anyway. (lol like I need to offload DSP power I'd rather buy a better processor)You would have to dope me with the worlds most baffling speedball to ever consider buying something like a gaia or an M-Audio Venom. I got Vst's bro they don't sound any different to any reasonable person.

But offering people something you can't get elsewhere? makes a lot of sense.
