I'm a noob with a half baked idea....well, maybe.
I have no tech knowledge on building fx pedals but, like many reading this forum, I have an obsession with tone and the sonic possibilities of the bass guitar and have an extensive collection of pedals especially OD's, Fuzz and Envelope filters.
Some recent events have inspired an idea for an all in one OD, Distortion, Fuzz pedal with a twist.
I did a recording session on the weekend and got some great results by splitting my signal into three separate tracks. #1 Clean track with low pass filter rolling out at 150Hz #2 Uber fuzz track rolling in at 150 Hz/ out at 1.2K #3 OD with gain cranked rolled in at 1.2K rolled out at 10K.
Today the engineer for the session sent me a link to a magazine article about the new EHX Bass Big Muff Deluxe with the variable crossover feature for the clean/ fuzz blend. Cool feature, but what if you could take it further.
So inspiration came to me, much like Archimedes in the bath tub.....(cough)
A triple band OD/ Fuzz, 1 clean, and 2 Dirt, with 3 variable crossover points and a range of OD, Distortion and Fuzz flavours to chose from. Other features could include an FX loop to plug an envelope filter into which can be assigned to either the 2nd or 3rd dirt channel or both.
With these features i'm thinking of it as a digital effect.
So.... does the TB world think this is a good idea? Would any builders out there take this on?
I would buy one.....
