Novation AFX Station Aphex Twin Limited Edition Bass Station II

Limited-edition of the modern classic Bass Station II monosynth, designed in collaboration with Aphex Twin

MFR# AMS-AFX-STATION

Product Description

The Novation AFX Station is the perfect combination of digital control with incredible analog synthesis inside an already phenomenal, classic modern monosynth: Bass Station II. AFX Station packs all the same features and Bass Station II, including two oscillators, a multimode filter, amp and filter modulation, step sequencing and an arpeggiator. It also comes pre-installed with firmware v4.14, which adds new functionality including fixed-duration envelopes, extended sub oscillator controls, oscillator glide diverge, and the much-acclaimed AFX Mode.

AFX Mode

AFX Mode was conceived by Aphex Twin himself, to turn Bass Station II into a sound designer’s dream. When in AFX Mode, every key becomes a new patch, revolutionising the way Bass Station II can be played. With a completely different sound on every key, the instrument transforms into a hugely powerful analog drum module, a sound design beast, or a killer bass or lead machine. Whether playing, sequencing or using the arpeggiator, AFX Mode brings a huge sense of creative character to users’ musical creations. Labels for AFX Mode functions indicate how to unleash the potential of the new features.

New, Aphex Twin-approved look

The stark new design with striking purple reveals and the famous ‘A’ insignia makes AFX Station not just an amazing synth, but an instant collector’s item. Labels provide easy access to AFX Mode functions, making it easy to activate the new features. The limited-edition giftbox was designed by long-time Aphex Twin collaborator Weirdcore and features custom artwork on the inside and outside with a matte finish and high-quality gloss highlights.

Brand new artist patches

AFX Station ships with 128 new synth patches and seven new overlay banks from Noyze Lab, Perplex On, Richard Devine, r beny and Lightbath, which channel the creative vision of Aphex

FEATURES

In addition to all standard functions of Bass Station II — the powerful two-oscillator analog monosynth with dual-mode filters, modulation, effects, step sequencing and more — AFX Station also features:

  • New, Aphex Twin-approved look: Stark new design with striking purple reveals and the famous ‘A’ insignia — not just an amazing synth but an instant collector’s item, interface labels provide easy access to AFX Mode functions
  • Limited edition giftbox: Designed by long-time Aphex Twin collaborator Weirdcore, the giftbox features custom artwork on the inside and outside with a matte finish and high-quality gloss highlights
  • Brand new artist patches: 128 new synth patches and seven new overlay banks from Noyze Lab, Perplex On, Richard Devine, r beny and Lightbath channel the creative vision of Aphex Twin
  • Overlay Editor in Novation Components: New editor in Novation Components allows full control over managing overlays

Key Features of v4.14 firmware, pre-installed on AFX Station:

  • Fixed-duration Envelopes & Retrigger counts: Envelopes can be set to a fixed length, so the decay stage is taken out of play, and the decay slider instead sets the duration of the sustain stage, tThe number of times the envelopes retrigger can be adjusted, to bring more control for drum synthesis.
  • Extended Sub Oscillator controls: The sub-oscillator follows the pitch of oscillator 1, and can be detuned using the coarse and fine controls, so the sub can be tuned to any non-octave-tracking interval you like, for subtle or dramatic creative effect
  • Oscillator Glide Diverge: Oscillator Glide Diverge allows the glide time of oscillator 2 to be slowed down relative to oscillator 1 by a variable amount, causing the two to diverge for interesting portamento effects, for adding thickness and character to basslines, pads and leads
  • Microtuning editing: The frequency triggered by each key press can be completely controlled, giving scales another dimension
  • Paraphonic mode:The pitches of each of the two oscillators can be controlled separately in its single-voice architecture, two notes can be played at a time rather than just one, and users can get interesting interactions through the Ring and Filter Mod

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
