DESCRIPTION
The BassStation is a small analog synthesizer which does a very good job of simulating the sound of many old analog synthesizers. It can be used for many purposes but is ideal for sequenced bass-lines, sound effects and lead solos.

What really makes the BassStation interesting is its filter. Using the filter right you can make it sound similar to Roland's TB-303 Bass Line (released in 1983). Furthermore, the BassStation's resonant filter can truly scream even more aggressively than the MiniMoog's filter ever could. It is of a different character though.

In short: A powerful analog synthesizer.
