Excerpt: My BSII arrived last night, and I must say - my mind is as blown! The first thing we always want to know is if it sounds good. This is always such a preference thing and I can't decide that for anyone but myself, so I won't go into that. All I can say is that I have Moog LP, DSI Evolver, Elektron Analog4 and Arturia Minibrute and this thing surely has something to say! Defintiely the "squelchiest" filter of the entire lot.
Pros: Pros, Easy to Use, Portable, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
Summary: The Bass Station 2 is a synth with personality that produces ripping, gnashy solos as readily as solid analogue bass. If you can adapt to the short keyboard, it's a delight to play and to sequence.
Pros: A fab-sounding, affordable analogue synth with patch memories., The sequencer is instant fun — and transmits its output via MIDI., Keyboard generates velocity and aftertouch., MIDI data is sent from every control.
Cons: Keyboard length is restrictive., No 'pot pickup'., Multi-functionality; not WYSIWYG.
