Once again, Novation make all us classic gear hunter’s dreams come true with a reincarnated software version of their dinky, yet much loved Bassstation synth. For anyone that’s used the real deal, this puppy is identical in terms of sound and layout, even down to being able to load up original ‘Station presets. Yes it’s monophonic, but hey, it’s called a BASS station for a reason. If its analog style basses you’re after, this does the job and then some. From Moog to 303, the 'station makes all sorts of vintage bass noises, and what noises! You get warmth, you get presence, and you get filth! Everything one could want from a bass synth! Leads and FX are also well catered for, and if you can’t find what you are looking for in the presets, it’s a cinch to cook up your own using the ‘vintage’ interface. The best thing Novation have done however, is make this a supremely CPU efficient little plug! I mean you can load up a whole bunch of these babies with hardly a dent in the system. This can easily become your main bass workhorse, and is destined to become a classic in its own right!
