Novation have just released some very cool new sound packs for their flagship Bass Station II, created by a range of artists from a variety of different genres. Read on below…
At the heart of being a synthesist is developing your own patches – taking an initial waveform(s) and tweaking the available parameters to generate a customised sound that’s all yours.
We decided to put a call out to a handful of our Bass Station II artists to have them create some patches for a new soundpack.
Nite Jewel – LA-based producer, artist and serial collaborator
Cian from Super Furry Animals, the kings of Welsh psychadelia
Jeremy from Everything Everything, a guitar band from the UK who make weirdo indie for stadiums
Jason Miles – uber Jazzer who programmed synths for Miles Davis and has a Grammy on his mantlepiece
Victor Parris Mitchell – ghetto house legend
Adam Freeland – head honcho of Marine Parade Records, DJ and one third of electronic band The Acid
That’s not all…
To celebrate the original Bass Station turning 22 years 8 months 17 days and 4 hours old*, we’ve decided to partner it up with its younger sibling and give them away together. So you can win a Bass Station II. And a Bass Station too.
