Novation K-StationPublished on 10/31/08 at 16:00
All the features are great. This synth has superb capabilities of changing all dynamics of sound. The volume,pitch,and Tone are what make up sound and this K-Station is jam packed with tweeking options. Only one feature that I really wish it had was the ability to act as a midi-controller to control VST's K-Station has: 1 1/4" output 1 1/4" Input Midi- In , out , Thru power supply It's own headphone jack

Price paid

$700.00

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, I like that it has nice full keys. The manual is decent. I wish that the top row of knobs were spaced a little farther apart for us guys with big fingers

This is a very well built machine for under a grand!

SOUNDS

The sound quality is exactly what attracted me to this tool. It has rediculously thick & Fat sounds and textures. This synth I feel was developed to produce driving leads and Bass,although it has beautiful melodies. Effects: Delay Reverb Chorus Distortion EQ Panning & Vocoder As far as Sound quality goes I feel for the money it compares to the Nord's

OVERALL OPINION

I am totally in love with this synth the day I found it I played with it for 6 1/2 hours at the shop! I left G.C. starving I had been there all day. That's when you know you found something special and amazing. I truly beleive that the thick ambient textures that my future compositions will transpose will be a direct result from this Synthesizer.

Your basic feature set for a synth, plus a great vocoder, external processing and effects abiltiy. The 8 voice stacking feature is very nice for massive sounds. The ability to blow out all factory sounds and write your own 400 patches is a huge plus.

price paid: $600

UTILIZATION

This may be one of the easiest synths one would ever use. It's portable, great sounding, and looks nice.

I have never contacted customer support, and I feel it is robust enough.

OVERALL OPINION

It's a mini synth that is a monster sonically. I love it, and would get one to replace it immediately.

See above

USE

Idem

SONORITS

The sonorits are standards, big bass, super lead, vocoder, nice synth layers with respect to the factory presets. what I find most intrrssant is to create its own sounds ... and frankly with the NOVATION stay on the ass! is the SLAUGHTER !!!! a pleasure to play with occilateurs and effects.

NOTICE GLOBAL

Personally I made music "electro / industrial" and synth is perfectly appropriate for this type of music ...
for the price I find it monstrous anyway!
UP!

For specifications, refer to the card manufacturer.

UTILIZATION

General configuration very simple, if we have, ever so slightly, approached the world (fascinating) synthesis.
Each parameter can be accessed directly by a potentiometer, or, failing that, very quickly through the menu.
The fact that the presets are not numbered but named is a little confusing at first, but you get done quickly and access by the potentiometer "Program" or when we know the number you wish directly by the keypad is actually quite simple and intuitive.

I did do that flew over the manual, but it looks clear and everything seems to be addressed.

I did do that flew over the manual, but it looks clear and everything seems to be addressed.

I've had a few months and the only problem I have encountered at this time of the transfer presets from the computer (and therefore the final certainly does not even in the synth itself, but more mishandling of the whole of me).
One reason that made me buy this synth (besides the price, and lots of good advice found here or elsewhere on the web) is that we can transfer V-Station presets (VST version ) K-Station.
After research, I found a few tracks on the net explaining the basics of manipulation, but on all the solutions found, none works for me (I actually made a few days ago a post about it on the forum, but so far no response).

SOUNDS

Excellent for all types of electronic music minimal "edgy": D (for me, electrohouse, breakbeat, dubstep, drum n 'bass, techno, gabber ...).
It screams super easy, it's "filthy" and wish to personally, that's all I ask!

Joking aside, I used both for good low fat electrohouse, the subs jungle for "reeces" drum n 'bass or leads gabber.
Also great for emulating a TB-303, in the kind Acidcore arpeggio, it's a real pleasure.


Well, it is certainly not worth a virus or other "racing machine", but it makes the job very well anyway.

I have the VST Predator Rob Papen and I find that the sounds that one manages to get with the K-Station is close to this.

The effects seem to me more correct, a little loud mouthed and sometimes metal, but not enough to spit on this synth it seems to me (well, along with my ears that have casually picked up a lot over the years and my meager knowledge of synthesis, I'm certainly not the best place to talk ...).

Also mention the arpeggiator, basic but who does his job too.

Ultimately, therefore, like all synthesizers of this type, if you're looking for realistic sounds, go your way immediately!
If you look for a synth of electronica, drum n 'bass, trance, gabber's, techno, or even the dirty south, you can go there, it is sure to please.

And, because there must necessarily have a little "less", otherwise some might think I'm nothing but a commercial NOVATION in seeking to bring the customers to its brand, we can say he may be missing some volume and it should therefore not hesitate to climb a little gain on the mixer.
For example, I use it also setup live with a friend, with the MPC2500, an Alpha Juno 1, an MS2000 and SH201, and it's one that sounds the least strong (but hey, nothing to be bothered and having to climb excessively gain either).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few months, but in a rather intensive.

I've tried quite a few other synthesizer models of this type before, things in the same price or more expensive and it seems far from being ridiculous (especially considering its price).

What I love most, its "bestial" and its ease of use.
What I like least ... go ... I repeat, to say something, but do not mind: it lacks a little volume compared to other synths.

The price / quality ratio is excellent (especially since it looks pretty solid, but hey, I do not own it long enough to be sure of myself) and I would do without hesitation that choice with the experience I have currently.
