Novation Releases 2.5 Firmware Update For Bass Station II

In light of the 25th anniversary of Novation’s Bass Station II monosynth, Novation has released a 2.5 firmware update that introduces new features including a Paraphonic mode, Filter tracking control, Envelope retriggering, Microtuning editing mode and the Oscillator error feature.

2.5 features

Paraphonic mode
Check out this video where we show you how Bass Station II is now a paraphonic monosynth, because you can control the pitches of each of the two oscillators separately in its single-voice architecture. Play two notes at a time rather than just one and get interesting interactions through the Ring and Filter Mod.

Filter tracking
Filter tracking was one of the most requested features since the Bass Station release – we show you that feature in this video. The filter includes variable keyboard tracking in Bass Station II v2.5 – the best for matching higher notes to increased brightness.

Envelope retriggering
In this video, we show you Bass Station II’s secret sound-design weapon – envelope retriggering. It’s now possible to configure your envelopes to retrigger once the decay stage has ended, opening up a whole range of new possibilities.

Oscillator error
Oscillator error introduces a small and adjustable random detune on each note-on event. This can be used to generate some very beautiful, subtle (or not) musical dissonance, very much in the same way that vintage synths do (because of the looser tolerance of their electronic components). Paraphonic mode makes it as dramatic as possible.

Microtuning editing
In this video, we show you one of the more surprising updates in 2.5 – micro tuning editing. Check out how to completely control the frequency triggered by each key press, giving your scales another dimension.

For current owners of the Bass Station II, you can visit Novation’s Components page to gain access to the new 2.5 firmware.
