Thanks for reply!
I probably used most common effects that exist on computer. I mean software versions of those. In sound editing or composing software that I've worked and I did in fact use many effects on bass tracks, but never really used chorus, so right now it's little bit hard for me to imagine what would you be able to do to bass with chorus. The sounds that come to my mind seem to be way away from what I want from bass
but I'll research that, thanks! kreider204
well the thing is that I don't have style yet. I like the idea of being able to play jazz but that's like dreaming yet, although sometimes I like to mess around with some themes... like MR. PC for example.. just for me tho. just soloing without metronome. I guess that's not even practicing.
I never played with band live situations on bass.
I like a LOT of styles. I myself write some music in various genres. After I got this loop pedal for example, I started writing hip-hop beats, just because I got to loop some interesting bass grooves...
so I don't really know what style I play.
but I guess main idea is about loop pedal - I want to be able to play solo over some my own loops in live situation. something that would make the bass cut through the low end loop. or maybe to add some colors to the loop rhythm rhythmically... like wah pedal would add probably good rhythmic funky feeling at some points, you know?
although I don't know if I want wah pedal. I feel like there's got to be something better and more important than that before that.
