Behringer Pro 800
The Behringer Pro 800 is a polyphonic desktop module inspired by the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 from the era as the Roland Juno 6. With 8-voice polyphony and two oscillators per voice, you can create lush pads and bright chordal stabs.
With the poly mod section, you have some interesting ways to shape your sounds, and the inclusion of a noise oscillator allows you to add more texture and bite to leads and basslines.
Meanwhile, the Pro 800 is also Eurorack ready and can be installed as an 80 HP module. Besides MIDI, it also has filter and sync CV inputs and an additional patch port for the main output.

Novation Bass Station II
The Bass Station II continues the legacy of the original Bass Station, a budget monosynth introduced by Novation in the mid-1990s. Although one might not call it a classic, the Bass Station II has many similarities to the famous Roland SH-101.
The two oscillators give you four waveshapes, including sine, triangle, sawtooth, and pulse, and the filter has a Moog-style classic mode as well as an acid mode to recreate those 101 and 303 sounds.
In addition, there is a step sequencer for creating basslines and melodic patterns and a distortion effect for extra flavour. What’s more, until January 31, you get the Arturia Analog Lab Intro free with this purchase.
