I'm thinking about switching to HY-Poly:

It also has 3Oscs, Unison, RM, FM, Sync and a lot more...

... and probably sounds completely different.

I prefer V-Station but Bass Station has a certain character to it :wink:
It's the other way around for me :)

A bit of new fodder for this thread: I just came along this thread (already viewed it some years ago, I think), with interesting opinions on different Novation hardware synths, and the V-Station: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electro ... va-ii.html

Judging from sound demos, and comparisons between the V-Station and the K-Station, I can pretty much confirm this: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/showpos ... stcount=45 The V-Station sounds brighter to me too (I don't know if it sounds "better", just let's put that aside). It's something I really notice very often. I think the DAC in those older hardware synths really weren't very hi-fi. Of course you can argue that it added to the sound that it muffled the high frequencies. ;)

If you want muffled high frequencies, that easy, any eq will do... Its more difficult if they are missing...

"analog warmth" is the term you're looking for. ;)

:tu:

Actually, as odd as it sounds, I sometimes do that with Waldorf Largo, when the highs are a bit too piercing.

Haha. :D

More like oldschool digital warmth in this case though, I guess. :)

I love it still. Lots of my go-to sub bass patches were made in v station and they sound amazing. I had a k-station very briefly right before v-station was released. It also does nice little pads and fx. The cpu usage in nothing as well. For many years I was very content using synth 1, vaz, Discovery, and v-station for almost all of my straight forward synth sounds. I started using zebra2 for lots of things when I got it.
I'll keep using v-station until they (novation or steinberg or microsoft) break it in an update. For the price it is a great starter synth. I would have killed for something that nice when I was just starting out.
