    Boss GT-1B bass synth

    Not really, the synth section on the unit is very limited and (as it is replaces the bass signal rather than augmenting it) has fairly poor tracking. That said, when covering something material girl I would use and OC-2 or similar to get close. The GT-1b has a great OC-2 sound. If you solo the -1 octave, add a bit if compression and maybe a bit of filter and you’ll get in the ballpark. If you really want to sound like an analogue synth, best thing to do is (as said by so many in the know on this forum) get an analogue synth. Something like a Novation bass station 2 or Moog little phatty will easily cover 80’s style synths like you mention above.

    Mini Helix - HX Stomp...

    You’ll need an account at Line 6, but shouldn’t need to register the Stomp. You’ll need the Stomp plugged into the computer via USB at the same time as running the updater.

    Mini Helix - HX Stomp...

    Sorry, in waxing lyrical I forgot to directly respond; it’ll work just like a Bass Whammy if you so desire. Well done sir, yes exactly that. 👍 You update via the Line 6 updater software on your PC or Mac.

    Mini Helix - HX Stomp...

    The pitch shifting and is one of the most impressive features of the HX Stomp. I’ve just setup a -4 semitones queens of the stone age patch and it tracks as well if not better than my VB-99! I also setup a Unibass style patch with excellent results.

    Me too.

    I just got one too. Great bit of kit. Think I’m going to get a Gekko switcher as I’d like the ability to ‘engage’ the patch having scrolled to the correct one. I'm also contemplating going fully frfr as a result of how good the amp modelling is on the HX stomp.

    Random question from the past re Boss GT10B

    I think there’s even a ‘Pino’ patch if I remember correctly?

    Y, the software is Gumtown from Talkbass and VGuitar forums editor. It’s the software that Roland/Boss should have developed and didn’t. https://fxfloorboard.sourceforge.io/info.php?model=gt-10b

    Random question from the past re Boss GT10B

    If you’re sure the cable is working (ie. You’ve tried running other hardware through it that worked) I would uninstall your drivers and start again. Make sure the GT-10b isn’t connected when you reinstall. Forget the Boss software and use GT-10BFxFloorboard. It had all the Boss features plus all the editing features you’ll ever need. I’m running GT-10BFxFloorboard on an IMac and it was a sinch to setup. I can’t imagine it’s that much more involved on a PC?

    obbm's feedback

    Bought an ART headphone amp from Dave. Perfect purchase. Excellent comms, arrived next day, packaged amazingly including a print out of the manual. First class service and (as if he needed it, judging by the previous 16 pages of positivity) another high recommendation from me. This is why I love Basschat.
