The best Analog Synth under 1000?

Kamil Z., 08.07.2015
What can i say , this is actually my 2nd BassStation II i own. I had to sell mine only as my car needed fixing. As soon as i had the money i bought it back.

This synth has all the features you would expect from a mono synth. It is extremely well built. Knobs are very sturdy and the whole synth albeit being made of plastic is very stiff ( the plastic is of good quality).

One of the great things many synths lack that the Bass Station II has is the ability to be powered from USB. Imagine hooking this to a laptop without the need to use any additional Power supplies !

Speaking of sound , it has it all , 2 oscillators + Sub, 4 Filters with 12/24db switch.
2 Lfos that can be synced in any possible way.

It can sound warm and rubbery or hard and harsh if you so desire due to the 2 Overdrive and Distortion effects.

Fm Synthesis is also possible with some tweaking , and the Synth has Velocity and after-touch !

All this for less than 500? ! It's competitors have only 1 oscillator and can't do half of the sounds this baby can. Grab one !

Versatile Monosynth!

28.09.2016
I've been using this for the past year on a home studio as a staple for any kind of synth bass and lead.

One thing that becomes apparent right from the start is it's ability to always cut through a mix.

You can get a great array of sounds, from harsh cold and super agressive like you're used to seeing in demos on YouTube but also warm, soft, almost lush sounds. Of course you can't do anything other than monophonic, but it's much more than you can see on Demos. If you want a sound you can make it.

The only thing I'd love to have different is the pickup mode of faders and knobs when you switch between patches.

Other than that USB connection to the PC provides a very stable link, and if you have Max for Ableton Live you can control and modulate parameters of the synth that aren't modulatable by default (eg. LFO Rate). Everything on the synth is controllable by MIDI CC though.
