Novation BassStation Rack
A monophonic analog module.
2 osc. saw or square. Lowpass 12 or 24. 1 LFO, 2 envelopes.
triplet noon in mono, mono out, CV, headphone.

UTILIZATION

Anyone who has used a synth will not be confused.
The backup system with the switch "write protect" is terribly tricky: the "save" and "next program" button is the same.
Operation is simple and enjoyable. Some knobs (the envelopes, and modulation) control two parameter and the take-over makes some things a little confused.
Only 10aine parameter (envelopes, cutoff and Q) are controllable to hit DC.
The manual is good. It's worth to read for a few subtleties.

SOUNDS

Excellent! It sounds big, probably not as big as a "moog", but it works very well.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 or 4 months, you can do a lot of things. Low "90s", leads, weird noises, the kicks, the dubsteppisante low.

Novation BassStation Rack
1U synth: small, compact.
16 pots for editing + 1 volume + 1 portamento.
Output jack6.5
Midi In / Out / Thru

UTILIZATION

Config very simple: you plug, it works.
The MIDI channel selection is done in 2 seconds.
Editing of sounds: a pure delight, there is a rack or on a button = 1 function = simple, fast, fun ...
The manual?? Yes, I ... but never open ...

SOUNDS

The sounds are made for all types of electronic music and the bass line has a crucial role.
The sounds are not realistic (bass, bass) but very electroisants. Ideal for the electro, tek, drum 'n bass: it can get very very low, but also, to raise up in octaves, with surprising results!
Effects: no effect on the machine.

The notes will be 8 because even though the sound of this machine is very attractive, there are some areas where it does not excel, including acid type music sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

A great and simple machine, I always use a great pleasure for more than a year I think.

The value for money used is very good.

Coupled with a distortion pedal, we have fun a lot, but this machine sounds very round and warm, it's not a clone TB303, in my case at this level, I have a bassline that satisfies me acidlab enormously.

Novation BassStation Rack
It no longer has the inconrournable BassStation Rack ....
excellent model of synth bass designed by novation and especially for musicians electtonique desire to leave the big techno or hip hop (that means it's not a machine to make low-cons!)

Rear connectors: TRS output jakc 6.5, MIDI I / O + a thru
40 presets + 60 user preset manufacturers.

UTILIZATION

Using simple enough saver which already handles an expander can be less for a novice.
the 16 buttons on the front saying this makes the creation of its very intuitive compared to other synth much "school".

safeguarding the pattern is done in seconds and the OS is perfect for this type of machine.
on the far left button and volume portamento manage the overall behavior of the machine.
the rest is classic oscillator 2 (each with its own parameters. a controller button to the mix between the OSC1 and OSC2. waveform sawtooth or square on each tilt.

SOUNDS

The sound is quite fine enough or rather "fat" like big bass to sound heavy, but can also be very fine in the leads .... the control of the frequencies associated with the resonance creates a multitude of different sounds work using the various associated LFOs.
it's good sound, recess is not a waldorf .. but the price is not dreaming!

OVERALL OPINION

Very good synth given its low price ... easy handling .... it effectively fulfills its role as part of a user oriented modern music.
I use it for 3 years and never had a jai seeds (oops except with the power supply to me once I let go of the change but it seems that it is quite common on the old power supply innovation?)
