Introducing the Novation AFX Station - Limited Edition Aphex Twin Collaboration




Limited edition Black Novation Bass Station II with AFX Mode for $439.99. As always see the dealers on the right for availability. Details follow:

"Introducing the Limited Edition Aphex Twin collaboration - AFX Station.

Following an exciting hunt for clues across the globe, gathered and documented by the press [on MATRIXSYNTH here and here] and public, the spotlight has been shining on Novation to reveal the mysterious Aphex Twin collaboration.

Novation is excited to finally announce AFX Station, an all-new, limited edition of their modern classic Bass Station II monosynth, designed in collaboration with electronic music legend Richard D James aka Aphex Twin.

AFX Station is a sound designer’s dream. It has the same powerful feature set that has made Bass Station II the go-to monosynth for countless music makers. In addition, it has AFX Mode pre-installed, which revolutionises the way the monosynth can be played and programmed. Perfect for sequencing and arpeggiation, with AFX Station, every key on the instrument can become a new patch, making it a powerful analogue drum module, a flexible sound design tool, or a killer bass or lead machine.

To check out the AFX Station visit our site from launch on Tuesday 20th October, 8AM PST.

Availability: Online and in-store, limited
Cost $439.99"



And some additional info via Novation:

Back in April 2019 we collaborated with Aphex Twin to released the AFX Mode firmware update. Richard envisioned the decidedly radical notion of having a discrete set of synthesis parameters assigned to each note of Bass Station II, either variations on a ‘seed’ patch, or disparate sounds designed to constitute a chimeric whole. Although this sort of thing could already be kludged using very fast program change messages, having multiple sounds active at the same time would clearly be a far more creative and efficient system.

This opened up some key new features within the Bass Station II:
• Fixed duration envelopes
• Extended sub-oscillator control
• Oscillator glide diverge
• Envelope retrigger count

The AFX Station is an all-new limited edition of Bass Station II. A sound designer’s dream, AFX Station has the same powerful feature set as Bass Station II, with the addition of AFX Mode pre-installed, which revolutionises the way the monosynth can be played and programmed. Perfect for sequencing and arpeggiation, every key on the instrument can become a new patch, making it a powerful analogue drum module, a flexible sound design tool, or a killer bass or lead machine. With striking purple reveals and the famous ‘A’ insignia, it’s an instant collector’s item.

AFX Station Features
• New AFX look also giving easier access to AFX mode functions
• New giftbox designed by AFX visual collaborator Weirdcore
• AFX Mode already installed, turning Bass Station II into an analogue drum machine
• 128 new synth patches, 7 new overlay banks
• New editor on Components for easily managing overlays
