Novation’s Bass Station and V-Station synth plug-ins are now free to download
Designed to emulate two of the company’s 90s/2000s devices synthsNovation Bass Station and V-Station plugins are now quite long in the tooth themselves. In fact, the company has now discontinued them as commercial products and made them freely available as “legacy” software.
Bass Station is designed to create the monophonic 1993 material of the same name in your DAW. Like the original, which was used on countless dance records in the 90s, it features two digital oscillators and an analog filter. The plugin comes with all the presets from the original plus a few more, giving you a total of 100.
The V-Station, on the other hand, is an emulation of the K-Station synth released in 2002. It features a 3-oscillator sound engine with noise and FM capabilities, an arpeggiator, effects, 200 user programs and 200 factory presets. The polyphony is eight notes.
Both plugins can be downloaded now from the Novation (opens in a new tab) website, but keep in mind that there is no guarantee that they will be compatible with your operating system and DAW. They are available in VST/AU formats for PC and Mac, but there is no M1 support.
As such, it’s really suck and see, but you have nothing to lose by trying, do you?
