Orbital's Paul Hartnoll In the Studio With Bass Station II

Displaced other anlogue heavyweights on new Wonky album      17/04/14

Novation just let us know that they visited Orbital's Paul Hartnoll in his private studio. Paul has  been working a new Orbital album Wonky, and it seems hesitantly took posession of a Novation Bass Station II - one of the new breed of affordable, analogue synths (see our review).

According to Paul, he was wondering what yet another monosynth could do in his already heavilly stocked analog synth studio. But there's a happy ending, Hartnoll found that the BSII actually made its way onto some of the new Orbital album tracks Wonky, pushing out other heavyweight contenders like the Roland System 100 for bassline duties and more.

You can get the new Orbital album Wonky directly from the Orbital site

Happy to see Novation getting some much deserved recognition for the bs2.

BS2 is a awesome sounding analog synth with all the modern day bells and whistles. In the $500.00 range the BS2 is by far the best "bang for your buck" mono synth. Novation has a winner here.

I dig Orbital (and have for years) and I adore my Bass Station II. A Hartnoll album useage is a powerful endorsement. The Novation Bass Station II is simply the best analog mono in its price range, and frankly for twice the price - vintage or modern. Its more clever than it seems for the specs, which themselves are impressive. Really fun and inspiring, it's going to be a classic.

Yeah, what Mattsynth said!

Really, it is the best value and bang for the buck out there. It totally stands up next to many of the classics in my studio. It's a remarkable accomplishment.
