    Novation has discontinued two of its software synthesizer instruments for Windows and Mac.

    The V-Station virtual analog synthesizer re-creates the power and rich sound of the K-Station synth. The plugin features Novation’s Liquid Analog synthesis engine, delivering rich, dense sounds that offer vast creative potential. The synth includes 200 factory presets, including bass, leads, pads, pianos, and more.

    B-Station emulates the flexible DCO oscillators and warm analogue signal path or Novation’s Bass Station synthesizer. Modeled to faithfully recreate the sounds of the monophonic, dual-oscillator analog synth, the plugin delivers everything from deep fat bass sounds to clean screaming leads. It comes with 100 presets to get you started.

    Both plugins are now free to download from Novation’s legacy software page. After installation, simply load the plugin in your DAW, activate and install the license. Mac users note that the plugins do not offer Apple M1 support and they are only compatible with macOS Catalina and earlier.

    where to find the license ? thats a good question, idk.
    someone wrote its bad news. that means they will not fix the bugs they’ve created in the latest release. major problem is the ARP which is not synced to the host anymore and plays random stuff. i bought vstation it long time ago.

    You just install it and click Activate when you are connected to the internet. Then you will get the licence file

    tested and working fine for both V-Station and Bass Station.

    1. Launch the plugin.
    2. Click on Activate, it will download a license file from Novation Server, save it anywhere.
    3. Click Install License and load that license file you've just downloaded.

    do you have to be a member or to be able to use this freeware to buy or purchase the license to use v-station?

    You do not have to be a member nor do you need an account with them. Just download, install and do what Stevie Dude wrote.

    I've always stuck to v1.7, as it seemed identical to the latest version for me.

    Freeware that still needs a new license for every PC sucks.

    It's about damn time they did this. I e-mailed them years ago and they gave me a license for one of them for free. I'm not sure if I still have the Novation e-mail address anymore though.

    Today I tried these plugins.
    It's great that they're free. But I heard them with little stereo expansion unlike other Synths. And the Bass B-Station, there is one that only sounds from the left side, and the other that says estero sounds from both sides. Did this happen to you too?

    Yes, same problem here.
