Novation | Drum Station V2


Essentially a re-packaged Drum Station, the v2 has a new look that matches the theme of the Super Bass Station. Just like the Drum Station it employs analog Sound Modeling - digitally synthesized models of the original waveforms which can be shaped, just like analog. You can adjust the tone, attack, decay, tuning, snap, and distortion of its drum tones. It includes all of the sounds found in the original 808 and 909's, the same tone controls for each drum part, and the DIN Sync output which will allow you to sync a TB-303, 909, or 808 to it - just like the original boxes.

This is the perfect source for believable, tweakable 808 and 909 drums! It also features modern functions such as full MIDI implementation and control of all parameters, distortion, front-cut edits, note-off programming, programmable drum kits with 40 memory locations, and general-midi drum mapping. Plus there are multiple assignable individual outputs!

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
