Arp Solo on Novation Bass Station II

September 23, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s TimeSynthis demonstration of the Novation Bass Station 2.

“This new analog monosynth sounds great and is very creatively intuitive to work with.
This track is a arpegiator pattern I programmed into it. I used the Classic filter, first the 12dB then the 24dB in the last minute. A lot of other modulations. With filter resonance peaking out near the end of the piece. No overdubs, recorded on one solo track. Used some Lexicon MX300 effect for room space.”

Bass Station II is an analogue mono-synth based on the classic original Bass Station but re-worked for the 21st century. It has two filters, two oscillators plus a third sub-oscillator, patch save and a fully analogue effects section. Add a step sequencer, arpeggiator, full sized keys and a powerful modulation section and you have the makings of a synth that is built for bass, but capable of so much more.

Vocoder-Update

Novation has overhauled the vocoder on its flagship UltraNova hardware synthesizer. The free firmware update comes with 17 vocoder patches which are new to UltraNova, and is available, free of charge, to all UltraNova owners.

The UltraNova vocoder is a 12 band vocoder that can be fed by the included gooseneck microphone or other instruments via stereo line inputs. The overhauled vocoder algorithm improves the sound and performance of UltraNova’s vocoder.

Other updated features include:

  • Separation and spread controls for moving the bands
  • Formant freeze
  • Adjustable band resonance and decay time
  • Vocoder runs at full bandwidth

Pricing and availability. The update for the UltraNova is available now, and free to all UltraNova owners, who can download the latest installer, which includes the firmware update, at this link. Additional free artist and sound-designer soundpacks – including banks from the original Supernova and Supernova II synths – available to download at this link.

UltraNova is a ‘Nova’ series analogue-modelling synthesizer with a powerful effects processor. It is a single-part synth taking the Supernova II synth engine, and “packing it” with the latest technology. The UltraNova now has features which include wavetable synthesis, more powerful filters, a software editor and a “revolutionary” new touch-sense performance mode.
