Novation A-Station, released in 2001, in many respects is a symbiosis of Bass Station and Supernova. At first glance, the interface is very similar to "Bass", but its internal elements have a number of features sported by Supernova. Its housing is designed to fit a 1U space rack.

The voice part of the sound module is based on the Supernova, and operates on the principle of analog simulation. The unit has an 8-voice polyphony. The synthesizer comprises 3 oscillators with waveforms: saw, triangular, sine with additional PWM (pulse width modulation). It also offers an ordinary FM-synthesis, making the voices more sonorous and sharp. There is also a dual LFO (bass generator) with Sample&Hold, MIDI synchronization and a low-pass resonance type filter (12 or 24 db).

The interface is quite intuitive and easy to use. There are 200 factory presets featured in the synth, which are a reminiscence of atmospheric genres, such as: Trance, Ambient, and in some way - New Age.

As for the effects, A-Station includes reverb, delay, chorus, distortion and vocoder. The 12-band vocoder allows you to process external mono sounds, which can be used as a generating source, and processed with a filter and envelopes.
