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!

For it is Christmas time, there will be present in the form of the 7-questions-to-interview with David Koltai. He is the guy behind the unique Pigtronix effects, which all bear the probably coolest logo so far. Find out which question he is waiting for to be ask and enjoy his answers to the 7 questions of the DelayDude.
Several times, people asked me, how to assemble the perfect ambient pedalboard. For this reason, I would like to sketch my very personal design of my pedalboard for ambient and soundscaping sounds in this article. Continue reading “Ambient pedalboard setup”
This is a comparison of the Eventide ROSE with the Ibanez DE7. Both of these digital delays are using an analog filter. Check out some of their sonic possibilities at different setting, for slapback delays and in the mix.
Almost surprisingly, Strymon put the Iridium – an amp and IR cab simulator – on the market. The Iridium emulates three classical amplifiers: The options called round, chime and punch are no less than the sounds of the Fender Deluxe Reverb, the Vox AC30 and a Marshall Plexi.

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.
This is a comparison of the Chase Bliss Audio THERMAE with Eventide ROSE. To get close to the brightest setting of the THERMAE, I reduced the filter of the ROSE. You will also get a demo of a darker setting, slow modulation and how both of delay pedals may sound in the mix. For pitch shifting effects, I added an expression pedal to the ROSE delay.
These are my favorite 7 settings of the Eventide ROSE delay. Find out how a maxed filter pot will create bright repeats (0:08) while a reduced filter will bring out almost analog-like sounds (0:43). An envelope controlled modulation will produce a tape-like feeling (1:27). And of course, I also used an expression pedal (3:00) for reverse delays with pitch shifting.
This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Eventide Rose. For the Rose is a mono pedal, I chose the single mode for the Echosystem. Find out more about different settings of these delay pedals and how both of them can sound in the mix.
This is a stereo demo of the amazing Empress Echosystem. Please, use your headphones! For the Echosystem is an incredible extensive delay, I won’t even try to present all of its brilliant functions. I only present my 7 favorite settings instead.
