Novation Super BassStation
Low processor - 2 OSC - Filter - Envelope - FULLY ADJUSTABLE.

MIDI Connectors - Jacks (L + R) - Auxiliary input (for sending a single line in the filter) - CV Out.


Rather simple, a button / a fontion. So many possibilities that we must spend time on it to realize the full extent of values ​​/ potential


From the very heavy ... real low !!! A particular sound, not suitable for bass sounds acoustic type, rather typed MOOG. For me this is what I sought (DUB - Hip Hop - Electro ...). for acoustic bass, acoustic bass I use, just ...


Bought in June, 2013 it took me some time to get used to the machine. Since it is a real treat. I used to inflated infrastruc on another type of machine (Roland - VST - floppies), here, no need, exemplary definition. Used for 200 €, I repeat that choice for sure.

Novation Super BassStation
Although this is a module that does dTRON the A-STATION, SUPER BassStation it loses its original sound, however, because the condos are output lgrement warmer than its big ERRF, so ... more dynamic, thank you. :-) The SBS (a go faster) possde a whole range of sounds Synths, Basses and Leads monophonic analog TRS CHARACTERISTICS who can hold the attention of composers and listeners as the sound is "amricain".


Ergonomics General for the instrument is simple although it must have fe fingers to slip between the potentiomtres so close to each other. The Intrets ds is that you touch any knob, is IMMEDIATE and more audible, the message is supported as SysEx for shipping via MIDI.


ITS is the price that must be prior to account on this instrument. For those who want deep groundwater analog or other plans "ARPG" better jump to the polyphonic versions A-or K-STATION STATION. Now those who want bass sounds analog version of Unison season with a dynamic effect cohrents to put the VU meters in the red is served - IMMEDIATE dguster .
I love all the particulirement rponse VLOC allowing the grate depending on the game effectively opening the filters and other fantasies parameter.


Okay it is no longer. But it remains "ultra" Submitted in all musical productions. SUPER BASS STATION is an asset trs effective in all parts Electro - Techno - New Wave or others. Whatever one may call, it remains a formidable usefulness or enhance existing low dj (or acoustic) or take place as a bass line or lead (program change if you want ... it's up to you). In any fawn there is no possibility of thirty six thousand possder a good analog sound expander. In fact there are only three colors = Blue, Yellow or red :-) So: Novation (an entire product line), or Waldorf (same player plays again), Clavia (one goes up in line). Curiously I've always had a penchant for blue and the ...

It is found now used there but it costs 4000 francs for two more years ...

(Ps: I deliberately removed accents maximum compatibility for playback)

Novation Super BassStation
This is a good mono synth expander ptit analog
-2 COD with sync, pwm, sub
From noon-course (all parameters are accessible by noon)
CV-MIDI converter / GATE Intgr -> a controller can even MS20! (V / Hz)
Audio-between to handle an external signal with the filter
-True analog filter switchable 12/24 dB
Small-effect section DISTO analog + PHASER

-Many knobs on the front


It is in practice a little head-taking, many paramtres are only accessible by menus, and it's hard to diffrent REPRESENTATIVES's features. But then it gets worse, and if you put a little good will ca is not as hard as a.

Fortunately we are not required all the time to dive into the menus, and therefore allow many knobs tweak the sound. Alas they are a bit small and trs close to each other. Other parties such as the unit is rack is not as pleasant as a keyboard or you can lay your hands, but hey nothing prohibits the inclusion in a slightly inclined ddi Panel.


The sounds are quite large. The DCO is fairly complete section which quickly fall on the same sounds all the time, and the filter is switchable filter diffrent two slopes 12 or 24 db.
12 db is good for sweeps, pads and in general the richest mdiums.
Allows 24 db sound more energetic, the variation of the envelope on the filter giving greater rsultat more radical.

Hlas I for my part a little t dcu APRS shot by SBS. On the one hand the COD ring a little too perfect (especially with respect to a MS20 for example). So we may well have a lot of opportunities that level, it quickly loses the taste of making sounds only with COD, which is a shame trs. When the filter, even if it is not bad there is nowhere near the old design moog .. Actually I do not know how it is done and what is its degree of resemblance to either the design or with the moog copy TB303 (diode in place of transistors).
The fact is that the ear is not come make beautiful TB303 .. or some classic sounds that she may have in the head. It will take another synth for that.

Hlas Second, the effect section is not gniale, the distortion is far from being a stunning Analog, and the chorus / phaser is not labeled trs ..

A final BMOL that affects the sound, the envelopes are not fast enough, and few prcises a blow to the other. Which limits sounds like BD 909 or other small chattering sounds good ...

Oh I forgot, there is a leakage of one of the LFO on the audio path is defined so slightly trs a kind of hissing parasite! It can be deleted by changing a parameter c but boring!

That said, it would still get some sound friendly, everything is a story of personal attention.


Personally, I sold it because I had other analos interests me, and I also wanted rcuperer money for something else. It's not a bad machine, especially if it was not CHRE and want to fill an analog setup. It's always a sound source supplmentaire. Fortunately today there are many options in terms of analog synths (such Evolver, MFB synth Black Coffe, Doepfer Modular). I would consider them rather ...

Let us not forget also the interface CV / Gate.

One thing also that I was a little cooled the midday impletementation a little jitter. That is to say we feel small irrgularits notes on cheeks. So if you are able to feel the tiny variations ryhtmiques, go your way.
