More Sounds For Novation Bass Station II With New Artist Pack

The Novation Bass Station II is a classic synthesizer well known for its warm and fat sounds. To make this synth even better Novation have released a new sound pack with an eclectic mix of patches.  

If you have a Novation Bass Station II then here's one way to make it better. Download the new Artist Pack (and while you're there check out the producer pack) - both are free. 

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.
