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
Excerpt: I play a lot with for about a month. Store I also tested MiniBrute / microbrute (a good half hour each) and if I had the choice again I repeat the bass station, great sound, excellent value for money.
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.

Excerpt: The value for money is excellent, like all the many new mono coming out on the market since Minibrute, but for the benefit of memories (although for some it is a disadvantage, go figure ... however, which can the more can do less, right?). Our time is still great: when compared to Roland Gaia SH-01 (which is € 200 more expensive N...
Excerpt: I me since August I drive uses the audio output of bass station on ableton for him paste a good distortion (trash2) and is nickel! what I love most: memorisation of preset, what I like least: the distortion, with experience I not really know if I would do this choice I would have to try the microbrut or minibrut to know!
Excerpt: Finally I would say that is the best status price / quality ratio seems to me quite obvious and justified, 460 euro for three oscillators with four filters and distortion, rather honorable keyboard with velocity and aftertouch all with 128 mémoire.donc yes it is a case, as the first synth or a set already provided it find a place without a probl...
Excerpt: Je joue beaucoup avec depuis environ un mois. En magasin j'avais également testé les minibrute/microbrute (une grosse demi heure chacun) et si je devais refaire le choix je reprendrai la bass station, super sonorités, excellent rapport qualité prix.
Excerpt: pour finir je dirai que sont statut du meilleurs rapport qualité/prix me parait tout a fait justifié et évident, 460 euro pour trois oscillateurs avec 4 filtres et distortion, un clavier plutôt honorable avec vélocité et after-touch le tout avec 128 mémoire.donc oui c'est une affaire, comme 1er synthé ou pour un set déjà bien fourni il trouvera ...
