When Robin reviewed the AFX Station for us after its initial release, he called it “a rip-roaringly good analogue monosynth” offering a “completely different way of working with a synthesizer that brings a fresh and exciting intention to patch creation and sound design.”

The AFX Station is a special edition built around the collaboration between Novation and techno legend Richard D James, alias Aphex Twin. Initially conceived as an AFX Mode on the successful Bass Station II, Novation released a special edition focussed on the AFX mode, adding a few features into the mix like some cool glowing controls. “The Aphex Twin mode is so fabulous that they decided to rebrand the Bass Station II around it,” Robin wrote in his review. “Yes, it’s pretty awesome.”

A super-fat-sounding dedicated bass synth with an innovative layer of functionality that will open up your creativity – who doesn’t need one of those? This synth is a Star Destroyer-sized new weapon in your sonic arsenal for creating incredible new bass lines.
