Don't count on me updating- I hope to, but I have a lot of these threads dead all over the place
Anyway- the pitch
DOES YOUR ENVELOPE FILTER OR COMPRESSOR SUCK YOUR LOWS AND GET YOU LOST IN THE MIX?!
DOES YOUR CLEAN BLEND KNOB OR EVEN BLEND PEDAL LEAVE YOU BUMMED OUT?!
DOES A CLEAN BLEND WITH YOUR FAVORITE FUZZ SOUND LIKE A BASS BEING CHASED BY BEES INSTEAD OF A FAT FUZZ?!
What youre missing is EQ or filtering on your clean blended sound, and perhaps on your 'wet' signal too, while we're at it.
on envelope filters- I like a little clean for fatness, but it always erases the sweep.. ironic? If you use a little low pass on the clean youll have bassy fat filter goodness!
And while we're at it, why not a high pass on the filter? it will make crappier/naughty filters with undesirable bass peaks a thing of the past.
same thing with fuzz- it always just sounds like a clean bass with some weedeaters in the room. So perhaps you can get rid of the weird lowmid harmonic mess (or not, if you like it) and get rid of the string and fret noise and BOOM. fat bottom fuzziness, like sasquatch
Hell, a crossover may even work, or possibly be the ideal solution... a crossover-blender. Blendover.
yeah that's it... the blendover
of course there are a lot of options-
parametric EQs for maximum control and ultimate finger-twiddling prowess!
likewise, you could have any combination of filters, graphic EQ, classic tonestack. Hell, one could even have it panned dynamically, controlled by your envelope like a filter . an envelope clean blender.
So.. go breadboard. or wait for me to ... though I have 4 breadboards all with 'projects' I paused on.
