Novation AFX Station: The modern classic monosynth, remixed by Aphex Twin

Designed in collaboration with electronic music legend Richard D James aka Aphex Twin, AFX Station is a limited edition of Bass Station II. A sound designer’s dream, AFX Station has the same powerful feature set as Bass Station II, with the addition of AFX Mode pre-installed, which revolutionises the way the monosynth can be played and programmed.

Perfect for sequencing and arpeggiation, every key on the instrument can become a new patch, making it a powerful analogue drum machine, a flexible sound design tool, or a killer bass or lead module. With striking purple reveals and the famous ‘A’ insignia, it’s an instant collector’s item. 

Artist-created soundset

AFX Station ships with 128 new synth patches and seven new overlay banks from Noyze Lab, Perplex On, Richard Devine, r beny and Lightbath, which channel the creative vision of Aphex Twin and provides you with lots of sound design inspiration.

The iconic Bass Station II

Bass Station II was released in 2013, and has been a go-to monosynth for music and sound artists on stage and in the studio ever since. Bass Station II features two oscillators, a multimode filter, amp and filter modulation, step sequencing and an arpeggiator. It is loved for its simplicity, ease of control and — last but certainly not least — its immense sound.
