Big Synthy Fuzz (Squarewave?)
Hey guys glad to be posting here! (I'm a regular member of The Gear Page and Gearslutz, but I lurk here quite often.)
Anyhow, I've recently started kind of a fun experimental/electronic music project based on drums and bass. I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for a type of fuzz. I'm going for a really bottom heavy fuzz, kind of like one you could make with a JUNO synth. I'm thinking it's almost some type of square wave sound. I don't really need the filter effect, just the fat low fuzz. I had a EHX Bass Microsynth that just about hit the spot (with the filter section bypassed), except the notes tapered off very odd. It's almost like the sound reaches a cut off point and stops, instead of decaying off naturally (hope that made sense). Would a Shin Ei Companion fuzz do that trick? My WF Rat and Muff's just aren't cutting it.
There's a really good example of what I'm going for in Logic Pro. It's one of the stock synth sounds called "Chill Out Bass". I've been getting this sound primarily via synth lately, but there are some dynamics I'd like to achieve using and electric bass that the synth just can't do.
Any help is much appreciated!
Seriously the best combo I've heard is an iron ether subterranea and iron ether oxide. In pedal format none compare. Lots of demos in the iron ether subterranea thread.
I think you will get that standard reply of these few companies:
Fuzzrocious - check out grey stache, rat tail, ram the man part
Source audio - highly recommend the bef pro, multi wave bass distortion
Iron ether - as the above subterranean, oxide, xerograph deluxe,
And don't forget the good ol boss oc2 !!
Welcome to talkbass btw!!
TAFM can get to these sounds. Also the less popular but still kind of cool Red Ripper.
I have a variety of synthy fuzz sound demos on my various sound clip and gear review pages. Click the link in my sig below.
Tightest gate I have in a pedal right now is my Devi Ever Supermassiveblackhole I added an input resistor to.
Hmm, none of these pedals are quite what I'm looking for. I'll try to remember to record some clips tonight and post them. I'm thinking FAT 100% wet synth fuzz.
Thanks for the help so far!
Boss oc-2 to a fuzz pedal can get you that sound
Mountainking Magnetar, but that may be too much gain for you. Check out Excane's demos on youtube
