Type: Monophonic analogue synthesizer
Manufacturer's website: Novation USA
An early neo-analog portable synthesizer from the nineties, this project was originally aimed to a Roland Tb-303 emulation.
The Bass Station can faithfully reproduce analog bass sounds similar to a TB-303, Micromoog or Pro One synthesizer. The small keyboard and monophonic architecture set this keyboard up for strict bassline, lead synth lines, and synth fx. It also transmits MIDI continuous controller data from its pitch/mod wheels, frequency cutoff, resonance, filter modulation depth, env1 attack, decay and env2 attack and decay.
25 velocity full-size C-C keys (transmits polyphonic Midi) transposable over 8 octaves.The main panel features 19 knobs, 13 switch-tabs and 2 buttons - on the left side 2 wheels for modulation and pitchbender.
Liam used this piece of equipment sometimes on the live shows on mid nineties.
