V-Station Plug-In

The V-Station is a polyphonic soft-synth for Mac and PC. It has the same real 3-oscillator flexibility as the award winning K-Station, with powerful filters, 8-voice polyphony, simultaneous Novation FX.

Programming V-Station is simple, because all the primary controls are on the main screen. Simply recall a named factory preset, tweak it and instantly save it in any of the 400 program locations.

“This amazing virtual synth has great analogue sounds...I had a good breakthrough as a producer thanks to this great synth.”
