Novation Bass Station II

Novation Returns to Their Roots
By David Bryce
Right after Novation began in the early 1990s, the first sound-generating instrument they produced was the now-classic Bass Station keyboard. Sporting the filter from the EDP Wasp designed by Chris Huggett and channeling the popular Roland TB303, the Bass Station quickly became a favorite of the synth community, and has remained their only real analog(ue!) synthesizer…
Their brand new Bass Station II claims to be a modernized version of their first baby. Did they manage to preserve and/or improve upon the original?
