The Novation V-Station Virtual Analog Synthesizer is poised to make you rethink all you now about virtual synths. The V-Station gets the same real three oscillator flexibility as the award winning K-Station, awesome liquid analog filters, 8-voice polyphony, rippin? simultaneous FX and the kind of phatt sounds only a genuine Novation synth can offer. It's got masses of sophistication, acres of program locations and the flexibility to integrate it with your favourite sequencer/disc-based recording set-up. All the primary sound-shaping controls are there on the main screen, clear, concise and refreshingly simple. Recall a named factory preset, tweak it to get ?your sound? and instantly save it in any of the 400 program locations. Need more? Just click and you?ll find additional functions and controls on the other three screens.
For ultimate flexibility, why not partner a V-Station with one of Novation's award-winning hardware synths? As sounds created in the V-station can be downloaded into the A or K-station and vice versa, harmonising your gigging / studio set-ups and building mega-sound libraries is snap.
Three powerful oscillators provide all the classic waveforms including a sine wave for those sub-bass floor-shaking grooves. All Waveforms feature a ?Double? facility which provides twin waveforms with no loss of polyphony. Oscillators may be set to unison or sync?d operation and can utilize FM for the generation of metallic or percussive timbres. A Noise Source is also included in the waveform engine. Delivering the rich liquid sound of an analog filter, you can control selectable low-pass, 12dB or 24dB cut-off curves with resonance and overdrive, making it easy to recreate anything from a distorted TB303 to tight, rounded bass patch.
The V-Station delivers eight voices for each instance that is used. Call up an instance of the V-Station and there are immediately a further eight voices available with a new sound if desired. This ability to use multiple ?instances? allows the V-Station to run as many multi-timbral parts as the power of the host computer will allow.
Novation set the industry standard with the famed Supernova Synthesizer for providing a complete set of powerful effects on each part on the multi-timbral synthesizer. The V-Station adopts this sound structure which makes for 6 simultaneous effects per instance. The effects include a distortion unit that adds edge for harder sounds, a synchronised stereo chorus or phaser for spatial effects and a reverb that adds an extra dimension and realism. A synchronised panner and the delay engine complete the comprehensive lineup.
An arpeggiator with programmable speed, synchronisation and sweep range is available within each instance. Comprehensive synchronisation of time based effects can be easily implemented. For example the delay effect may be set to a quarter note repeat whilst another LFO (built in to the effects unit) can sweep the phaser every 2 bars. All parameters respond to MIDI controllers which can be recorded in realtime on a track on the selected sequencer. - Set up a few instances, hit a single key and trigger a wall of sound. All running arpeggiators and LFOs can be individually synchronised to MIDI Clock in different time signatures.
And with 200 stunning factory sounds covering a huge sonic range, you'll dig the searing leads and passionate pads, from delicate electric pianos to phatt funky bass. They?re all there.Features:
