アナログ・モノ・シンセサイザーNovationのBass Stationが新たに生まれ変わり、ムジークメッセ2013に登場します。リニューアルしたBass Station Ⅱ には、二つのフィルター、二つのオシレーター、サブオシレーター、アナログエフェクター、メモリー機能、ステップシーケンサー、アルペジエーター、モジュレーション、MIDI/USBを備え、価格は$449。今回のBass Station Ⅱ でもあのRoland TB-303のアシッド・フィルターは健在。リメンバー90’S!! Novationは今年21周年。下のビデオは歴代のマシンが登場するHistory of Novation!!

 

Novation

Oscillators

  • Osc 1
  • Osc 2
  • Sub Osc (3)
  • Noise generator

Osc 1 & 2

Select between waveforms:

  • sine
  • triangle
  • sawtooth
  • square/variable pulse width

Features

  • Sync 1 & 2
  • Detune
  • Octave range
  • Pitch bend
  • Pitch modulation to Mod Envelope and LFO 1
  • Pulse width modulation to Mod Envelope and LFO 2

Sub Osc (3) which is tracked to Osc 1

Select independently between waveforms:

  • Sine
  • Square
  • Narrow pulse

Features

  • All modulation and tuning tracked to Osc 1
  • Independent octave select

Mixer

  • Osc 1 level
  • Osc 2 level
  • Sub Osc level
  • Noise generator level
  • Ring modulation depth
  • External signal level

Filter

Two filter types

  • Acid type (diode ladder filter design)
  • Classic type (derived from original Bass Station)

Features

  • Cutoff
  • Resonance
  • Overdrive
  • Filter frequency to Mod Envelope depth
  • Filter frequency to LFO 2 depth

Select ‘Classic’ filter between:

  • Low pass
  • Band pass
  • High pass
  • 12dB slope
  • 24dB slope

Envelopes

Two ADSR Envelopes  (Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release)

  • Amp Envelope
  • Mod Envelope
  • Combined control of both Envelopes

Select triggering mode between:

  • Single trigger (holds envelope state when new note is played)
  • Multi trigger (re-triggers with every new note played)
  • Autoglide (engages portamento)

There is also a VCA limiter

LFO

Two LFOs each selectable between:

  • Triangle
  • Sawtooth
  • Square
  • Sample and hold
  • Both LFOs independently adjustable between rate and delay time
  • Key sync LFO 1 & 2
  • LFO slew on LFO 1& 2 (low pass filter on the LFO waveform)

 Effects

  • Distortion send
  • Oscillator filter mod amount (FM effect created by Oscillator 2 modulating filter freq)

Step Sequencer/Arpeggiator

Arpeggiator

  • Up to 32 different patterns
  • Select between 1-4 octave range
  • Swing function
  • Select direction:
    • up
    • down
    • up / down 1
    • up / down 2
    • As played
    • Random
  • Latch (hold the arpeggiator)

Step Sequencer

  • Up to four sequences
  • Assign one of 32 preset rhythms or create your own
  • insert rests or legato (slide)
  • Sequencer re-trigger function

Portamento

  • Adjust glide time
  • Single trigger or re-trigger modes
  • Integrate into step sequencer and arpeggiator
