Synth Bass video on SBL

Recommended Posts

I was beginning to get fidgety even by the time I reached 'one of the best bass lines of all time' which features in a Dizzy Rascal tune - who knew?

Super dope. Yeah, he's probably half right.

I'm from a no-FX playing background and I'd never taken much notice of pedals.

I watched this and was surprised to hear what could be done with an octave pedal, a distortion and an envelope filter. That has certainly given me ideas (and GAS).

It’s fine if you have the time and patience to dial in each sound from that array of pedals, but it’s not very practical from a gigging bassists point of view. Not that you would ever play that selection of songs in the same set, but a single synth pedal with patches would make life a lot easier on the fly. His set up is fine for recording, but I think I’ll stick with my Future Impact and Boss SY-1.

Yes, I was wondering about a Helix Stomp or similar - that works out cheaper than discrete pedals and would allow switchable patches.

Having said that, I have an octaver, delay and distortion on my board already and also have that envelope filter in it’s box, so I could make use of them, but the Future Impact takes up so much room*, there’s no space for the MXR at the moment.

*I know there is a fix for that, but I can’t be bothered 😬

I don't think it's impractical for a gigging player to use a selection of pedals like that.  I've been using pedal combinations to get sounds on gigs for a while, and I prefer to do it that way than to sit and programme a pedal like the Future Impact or the C4.
