Excerpt: I tried this synth at winter namm show and was sold instantly. This synth is seriously awesome. I own a microbrute, a mopho and a bass station 2. By far my favorite of the three. I can get the aggressive bass tones I am looking for quickly with this synth. I love the fact that it has after touch. The arpegiator/ sequencer works with other synths and vst plugins. Syncs up with ableton wonderfully. My only problem with it is that my led display broke.
Excerpt: I've been using this keyboard to make electronic music both live and recorded. I can compare it to the Dave Smith Mopho keyboard (which I also have), and I would say that I actually think I prefer it (even though the Mopho is a lot more expensive). The sounds that are possible just seem more alive to me, and the control layout is very conducive to being able to quickly dial in a sound that you like.
Pros: Huge sound, Value For Moneu, Value for Money
Summary: A quite brilliant bass synth. Fantastic sound quality - lots of bottom end, more than I expected. Fairly good quality build, good quality plastic body but not the best keys ever. Pots are sturdy if a bit tighty packed for larger fingers. Presets are very good, filters are good, arpeggiator and sequencer are very good too. Very easy to build your own sounds from the 60 odd free slots with init sound settings. Very good value for money and hoighly recommended.
Summary: Väldigt mycket synt för pengarna. Lättjobbad, hands-on och fett ljud; djupbas som heter duga, brett och fylligt med 2+1 oscillatorer och rejält bett i filtret. Kan med andra ord betydligt mer än bara bas, även om det är Bass Station's primära syfte. Leads, effektljud och analoga trummor funkar bra det med - fast så klart med begränsningen att synten är monofonisk. DCO:erna är stabila som DCO:or ska vara och varma som analoga oscillatorer ska vara.
