Rackmount virtual analogue synth from Novation. The KS rack is a KS4 / KS5 sans keyboard. The engine is an updated version of that in the K Station but has 16 voices and is 4-part multitimbral. It can import & store patches from the A- and K-station

This is a nicely-made synth that feels robust. The controls have a quality feel. It’s an impressive piece of kit for the price

In lovely, unmarked condition. Tested & working 100%. In original box & packing with instruction manual. UK or Euro power cable supplied on request

“KS4, KS5 and KS Rack are all the same sound engine. Choose your weapon”

“The hypersync basically gives you the kind of tempo sync’d delays and modulation that many morern synths have anyway. Sound – well – novationy”

“Love its overdrive filter and the way it works, quite like novation filters anyway – not as characterful as access, but definitely up there among the more interesting sounding VA filters”

“It’s the best sounding VA I have heard, along with the Supernova II”

“VOICE core DSP manages a total of 16 voices polyphony.
A basic KS patch is composed by 3 detunable and crossmodulable oscillators at 4 octave heights; digital sound engine is hybrid and features 2 synthesis family generators”
