New Novation KS Synths Hit The Street

Multi-timbral analog modelled monster      15/11/02

Following the success of the K-Station (see our review), Novation have released the KS series, these all new synths build on the features found in the K-Station, taking it deeper into analog-style synthesis with several new innovative features. Available in 4 and five octave versions (a rack-mountable unit rumoured to follow shortly) both have 16 voices - twice that of the K, four part multitimbrality and a bank of drum sounds. Main features include
  • 4 part multi-timbral with 4 individual outs
  • Superb Liquid Analog sound based on enhanced K-Station engine
  • multi-mode filter (yes!)
  • Hypersync - a rather cunning way of syncing all clockable LFOs, delays, arpegiators in one go
  • one shot LFOs - you can use any of the 32 LFO waves as a an extra envelope shaping device to modulate any number of destinations,
  • Descriptive patch names
  • Additional oscillator waveforms The KS4 and KS5 are shipping now with an RRP of £699/ ~ $999.95 and £749 / $1099.95 respectively.
