This is probably the best Mono/bass synth I've used so far.
Tunnel One, 10.10.2019
I have had many mono synths, and I had about 6 of them already when I got the bass station 2, but this one still blew me away beyond expectations.

The sound of the BS2 is great, and features like drive and distortion allow for those dirty gnarly bass roars, while the clean sound can give you very lush, milky bass.

The set up of the synths is not groundbreaking with its 2 oscillators, Filter and ADSR, but it uses its tool very well.

The synht is built out of solid plastic, but this does not feel like low quality or fragile build. The knobs feel good, and the larger cut off is a very nice touch, allowing for better and finer manipulation during live play.

The keyboard is really nice, and allow for velocity play. I even start using it to control other synths via my DAW.

The added features of afx mode and an array of under the hood possilibites makes this a very powerful instrument, and in my opinion the best for its value currently available.

Rusen Stanchev, 18.04.2020
Everything in it is so handy, all the knobs are well made and work perfect. The keys are little lower with quality and after work some of them stay like they are pushed half. Also the plastic bottom would have been much better to change with metal or something stronger, because it twists a little when i need to take it off for live show or just move it off the stand. Overall is great value for the price paid.

100% worth purchasing, especially if this is your first analogue synth.
19.02.2016
My usage:
For home recording, also have Korg Electribe Sampler and Volca Sample, Volca Keys, Mixing board.

Summary:
Very good analogue synth. Great sounds, tweaking options and patches. Great synth for learning about how analogue synths work and sound patch creation. Arpeggiator is fun. Latch is useful for sound creation (latch simply makes the key continue to play even when you remove your finger from the key). Midi works well, but I must point out better as a slave device than as a master. It goes out of sync if I set it as master with Volca devices (which only can act as a slave device if not Korg branding), but is flawless as slave for any other midi out device.

Hardware:
Knobs and keys are all of good quality and become familiar like "old friends" after a period of usage. This, to me, symbolizes a quality instrument created for human interaction and experimentation.

Synth can be a little intimidating at first if you have never had an analogue synth, but you will learn analogue from using it and grow to love it. Price is great for what you get!

Recommendation:
Send audio thru sound effects like rooms or halls to really make it fun to tweak and come to life. You can use the provided effects in Ableton Live Lite or a mixing desk with built in effects.

Best in it's price range
28.09.2016
I have owned the BSII for a couple of years now without any complaints. The build quality feels good and the sound is spectacular. This synth offers many features that other more expensive synths do not such as ring modulation,7 filter types,on board sequencing and arpeggiator which sends MIDI information out, 2 LFOs, aftertouch, pre and post filter distortion and much more.It is an absolute joy to use. The majority of features are knob per function and those which are not are easily accessible through the use of the function key and pressing the corresponding key on the keyboard. I would recommend this synth to anyone who is starting out in electronic music and also those who are more experienced. I am consistently amazed with this synth, the more time I put into it the more it gives back.
