Many readers will be familiar with the popular Bass Station 2. The original Bass Station was released in the early 90s, first in this keyboard form and later in a more popular rack form. (It was the 90s, so we still all had collections of 1U-3U rackmount instruments and signal processors). From Vintage Synth Explorer:
Before the famous Novation Bass Station Rack module came the small and portable Bass Station keyboard! This synthesizer uses digitally synchronized analog oscillators (DCO’s) to reproduce the sounds of a monophonic dual-osc analog synthesizer with simple and intuitive controls via 17 knobs, 10 switches and 2 Moog-style pitch/mod wheels. Think EDP Wasp and ARP Odyssey.
