A modern classic bass synthesizer in Kontakt format, which can faithfully reproduce analog bass sounds similar to a TB-303, Micromoog or Pro One synthesizer. The design and monophonic architecture set this virtual instrument up for strict bass line, lead synth lines, and synth fx. Originally launched in 1993, Bass Station’s roaring oscillators and glowing analogue signal path defined numberless dance and electronic hits. With the help of advance sampling technology, the iconic sound of the modern classic is now ready as a Kontakt instrument. The highly tweakable little monster can create a wide range of sound, from deep fat bass, screeching leads to special effect. The mix of refined original and stunning fresh sounds create the warmth and resonance which is absent in today’s digital synths.
The team has recreated the TB-303 influenced portable bass synthesizer. Painstakingly modeled over a three-month period, capturing the behavior of the original hardware; from the filter frequency range, to the pulsating LFO effect. The original unit used a pair of digitally controlled analogue oscillators (DCOs) with pulse, square and sawtooth waveforms, plus an LFO with random, triangle and sawtooth waveforms which replicated the sound of a monophonic twin- oscillator analogue synth. According to wikipedia, there are some famous users including William Ørbit, Massive Attack, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead and Underworld.
