1 Roland SE-02

If, like us, you’ve spent recent years moaning about every new Roland’s digital engine, get ready to eat your words. A collab with Studio Electronics, the SE02 is a three-oscillator analogue mono synth with a 16-step sequencer and lots of presets to ensure it beats its closest rival, the Behringer D.

2 Novation Circuit Mono Station

The Bass Station is one of our favourite bassline monsters mostly because it’s cheap and sounds anything but. The Circuit is a hybrid of the best bits of the engine from the Bass Station II with the pad sequencer from the Novation Circuit. It’s paraphonic and all the top deck controls can record automation.
