Wow, someone thinks the Doepfer 404 is better than a bass station? Ever tried to raise the resonance on the 404 after about a quarter knob turn it self oscilates, and it's painful too. My goodness they make a prefectly usable synth and ruin it with moster resonance. Sorry should've posted that elsewhere, yes I know the 404 is close comparison to a lovely bass station, but in reality there is no comparison, the bass station is a far more usable instrument.

The bass station is a do it all mono synth, I've been able to come up with blips clicks, bass hits, etc. which with possible the exception of my Roland MC-202 I've never used such an open ended instrument, heck In my lowly opinion the bass station betters the Sh-101 MC-202 Tb-303, Doepfer 404, teebea crap, etc. The only thing I find to be better might be Mini moog, MS10/20, or a Pro-one. The bass station is that good, trust me. Sounds great, midi is tight, knobs are good (on the rack) I've never seen a keyboard version (blue plastic is yucky). Oh and the knobs transmit over midi -- too cool!

One big complaint! No fricking power switch on my Bass station rack! What kind of morons made this decision, perhaps because it's already way cluttered on the face plate, but they could've put it on the back or something.

Anyway for the money they can't be beat, I use mine daily, it's replaced some of my other mono's. Get one now!

I had the keyboard version for a few months and liked it quite a bit... I needed money really bad and sold it... bah.. I wish I had it now, it was a nice little unit. The 7 user memory thing and cheap construction does bite but... Sequencing with it via Seq-303(or any regular sequencer really) and hooking it up to a cheap guitar distortion pedal produces some phat screechy sounds. If I had a multi effects unit I would've liked to have added a little bit of chorus and reverb... ooh... I wonder what that would sound like =D

Very cool machine! Good for techno and dance. I give it a four because it has only 7 user memory switches.

get the rack version. i got mined used for 25000yen. that's around US$210!!!!! i'm happy twiddling with it, essential if you produce drum n bass, the sub basses (program your own one lazy bum!) are just marvelous, and you can get freaky and deep basslines with this.. i love mine and wouldn't sell it for the world!!! (unless someone wants to trade a supernova with it)

one of the best 'new analog' modules out there. my first and my last, definitely. don't even need a super bassstation. run it through some foot pedals and you're in heaven!

Well i got a Bassstation keyboard for about 100 uk pounds and i loOove it. It is ment to be a bass line module, nothing more, but can freak the shit out of your mixingdesk and speakers aswell.... It's been sold as a tb303 emulator but people who still believe a tb303 can be emulated and at that price are kinda weird to me. I feel the general sounds complement some riffs and the bass-sounds kick ass. Only 7 patches can be stored but who would use this synth without a tracker ? just send a sysex for a new patch, and there ya go....Instant Karma... If you want to make techno and dont have the cash to get a *gee,at that price it MUST rock* kinda box then get this. Run it thru a effect unit and kick someone's ass... . . . .
