idk looks like you like it to me  🙂

People are so fucking weird to complain.  It's an instrument, not a record...Buy it if you're a musician and you like it.  Don't buy it if you're not.  The Bassstation 2 was already a well regarded sy

It's a product !!
Novation AFX Station..... holy shit!

This isnt what the announcment is. This is the Bass Station II AFX update. The product that will be shown off on the 20th ia called The AFX Station and I'm guessing is an entirely new product, unless it's just a reskinned Bass Station II, I would be very dissapointed if that was the case, that also wouldnt make sense with all the promo.

 

A hardware reveal is almost MORE exciting than a new album for me, a new instrument in my home always changes everything, it becomes personal, I really hope this AFX Station wows me.

I agree it's a lot of promo, but the evidence points towards it being a re-skinned BS2. Box art looks very similar to the Warp 30th anniversary BS2 from last year but with all black keys.

So unless it's got some pretty neat new bells and whistles, the hardware side may be a little underwhelming. But, if they plug the hardware release with an afx BS2 ep or something, that could be cool.

Unfortunately Novation already did such a thing with the MoroderNova, a lackluster Mininova reskin with some patches sanctioned by Moroder. So far, microtuning and a multitimbral AFX mode are the only certain functional additions, the rest of the visible knobs and functions look virtually identical to the BS2. Here's hoping there's more to be revealed, otherwise it's going to look pretty stupid.

                                                                       microtuning alone would be worth it

Paul, dude who made the AFX logo, said it might be the experimental drum machine rdj never got off the ground. I doubt it's a reskin of the BS2

I  hope if it's a drum machine it has proper rhythm parameters. LFO on say, tempo/envelope changes in halves, thirds, fourths, 3/4, stuff like that. Even with something like an Elektron sequencer I sometimes feel like there could be more modulation to the general structure of sequencing

OMG I NEED THE NEW EFFECTS TWIN SYNTH TO MAKE THE REAL SMART IDM wow i can finally be just like rdeejaaaayy 😍

Jesus, dude..... People here make music on synths. They buy synths. This is a new synth that has features implemented because of Aphex Twin. Aphex Twin fans that make music will buy this synth if they want it and can afford it. Fucking chill out, lol

I never said anything negative about the synth itself - in fact, it's very good marketing on Novation's part. It's just going to be incredibly annoying to get your hands on this thing after release due to the parties involved alone, and that's not even considering production delays due to the pandemic. People are assholes 

 

Spoiler

or its a bass station ii with an afx logo on it

Sorry. I get really annoyed when people do the whole "Buying a synth won't make you better" bullshit that people do. Yes it won't make you better, but tools are tools. I also don't think people should just buy it because there's an AFX logo on it, but hopefully someone that does will start making music for the first time. Buying only to collect is a disease all on it's own tho.

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.
