The majority of effect pedals are made for guitarists and therefore, many bass players fear the contact with the small (and sometimes big) devices that can add a special character to the sound. In the first part of this two-part series, I would like to present some effect categories, every bass player can use without taking any risks. In the second part, we will have a closer look on effects, that require a bit more sensitivity. So, boys and girls behind the fat strings: go for it!

This is a comparison of the Moog Moogerfooger MF-104 with Eventide ROSE. To get close to the brightest setting of the Moogerfooger MF-104 I reduced the filter of the ROSE. You will also get a demo of a darker setting, slow and faster modulation and how both delay pedals may sound in the mix. For pitch shifting effects, I added an expression pedal to the ROSE delay. Regarding the Moogerfooger, I used a square waveform modulation to create the pitch shifting effects.
Delay pedals, analog as well es digital ones are ten a penny. Mostly, they provide numerous features like tap tempo, modulation and tone pots. But are there any stereo analog delays, too? Continue reading “Stereo analog delays”
This is a video about how to simulate the lead sounds of the Moog Sirin by using the Moog Mintaur in combination with the EHX POG2. The Moog Mintaur is a brilliant synth, which is famous for its perfect bass sounds. But, because of its construction, the range of the Minitaur is limited. The Moog Sirin is an updated version of the Minitaur and offers a wider range that reaches lead sounds. But do you have to go and get a Sirin right away? Check out this video and find out…
The number of patch cables was almost countless and the music to a large extend digital. But nevertheless, the SUPERBOOTH, which took place in Berlin for the fourth time, had to offer also interesting innovations for the guitar gear lovers. Continue reading “SUPERBOOTH Berlin 2019”
The dark sound is a very famous aspect of analog delays. Because of their design, analog delays cut the treble to minimize besides noise. As a result, they sound very warm and rich and, on top, they go well together with overdrive effects. Continue reading “Dark Delays”
Besides spectacular delays every analog delay produces white noise. Generally, one can say that the proportion of white noise increases in dependency of the delay time. To some this unintended noise represent an important part of an analog character, others prefer digital delays to produce a signal that is more clear. Continue reading “Are there analog delays without white noise?”
To modulate sound signals by rhythmical amplitude fluctuations was a technique that has already been used in the 1950s and became famous again through grunge music. Besides the first DeArmond tremolo effect, about which I already wrote in this article, there are many other possibilities to produce a tremolo effect. Continue reading “Tremolo effects”
