Fancy a change in the bottom end?
James5548, 19.12.2013
Thought I'd give a few thoughts and experiences on this box of wonderment. I'll start by talking about the Octave section, if you're unsure about whether you want a synth pedal it will earn it's keep as a high quality octave pedal. Octave up and down are very neutral and useful sounding and as hard as I tried I couldn't fault the tracking (even down to a low B, but notes anywhere near that range are useless in my opinion). The synth side (what you buy the thing for!) has a variety of classic synth sounds with a generous amount of tweekability again with awesome traking. You need to have the free software to program the pedal which might be off putting to the average pedal nut but trust me, it doesn't take long to work it out. This means it's more of a craft you're sound before the gig rather than something you can use on the fly, to be honest if it had the amount of knobs to cover all the functions of the software, it'd be the size of a mixer and would have never made it onto my pedalboard!

Who likes synth sounds with the bass: please try.
Manfred aus N., 04.09.2010
I like this: sometimes a sound is left, and the sound is not a Jazzbass sound, but a Moog Basston stands and stands and stands (and will not be quieter), and the Markbass comes closer than anything I do Otherwise still tried.

The design: from the played bass sound the pitch and (if wanted: the dynamics) are recognized and up to three oscillators then produce the synth sound, which can be mixed with the bass sound or pure. The following restrictions apply: only unison playing is useful, and as long as the string is still swinging, a synth sound is also produced, so that no unrestricted long tones are possible. Really good, the Markbass converts the tracking: no latency (the sound is immediately with the bass sound), and if you play clean, it is like when I press a keyboard key: better than all other devices of this category.

Sound: limited: the three oscillators swing with the same sawtooth (no other waveforms are possible); But you can filter it well, and with resonances and envelopes you can bring life to the sound. The bottom line is to get three or four basic characteristics from the device.

Hardware: best quality.

Operation: Two-part: on the device itself (during the performance or sample), only a few potentiometers are needed to quickly adjust a level or a filter. The sound can be developed with corresponding software, which can be downloaded for free on the markbass.it homepage and runs on Mac and PC.
A meaningful division, as I think. To program the sounds that you can store on the pedal, you have to bring in time and it is also helpful to know what envelope and resonance are for parameters, otherwise you will fish in the dark. But after a short training you can experiment a lot; Especially since many parameters can only be accessed via software. Unfortunately, the principle does not allow so much variation, and I also miss integrated shelf filters, for example, to make the saw not too obtrusive. But you can patience some different sounds, even times a lead sound. The integrated octaver (+ 1, -1, -2) I find not convincing.

Conclusion: whoever works with Synthsound in the bass range and also a little bit of the synthetic sound generation, should take a look at the device; But this view is only complete when the editing software is used; In the device is more than one can operate from the outside with the four potentiometers. The price is high, the quality and concept convincing.
