Bass Station II vs Waldorf Rocket

Post by KidFromBastion » Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:26 pm

Hello everyone!

So recently I bought Bass Station II on one auction, for half the price.
Now I see that someone else is selling his Waldorf Rocket, also on auction. I have a chance to also get it around half the usual price. Auction ends on Thursday.
Buy my question is - should I?
Will Rocket be able to produce sounds that BSII cant?
Is there someone who worked on both and can tell me what are the differences in sounds that both of them can produce? :)
I want to work on many kinds of music, but mostly dark electronic and industrial. I read some reviews saying that Rocket is good for those dark sounds.
My other synths are Microbrute, Korg X5 and Monotron Duo.

they will be able to produce sounds that the other cannot, in both cases. You'd do well to keep the BSII tho.
