I have been looking for a synth sounding pedal to give my tone the right lifeless, uncaring edge for years now. Like the noise of a running circular saw left on a wet floor. A faint and subtle metallic buzz and warbling in the background that makes your blood run cold. Nothing really comes to mind as far as examples so you will have to use your imagination. Not really familiar with electro music, but think of whatever fuzzed-out, disaffected French DJs you want. Gesaffelstein I believe is the one who has replaced Daft Punk and Justice in the hipster circles this year for that genre. Not really into that music, but I figure one or two of you will get my gist. Now I have a pretty tasty setup as is. I have a Wampler Euphoria going into BAT Black Forest, with a Boss PS-6 dialed in for a nice sharp pitch up sound that sounds like an angry elephant trumpeting. This all goes into a Mesa M9 Carbine, with the tube gain pushing the volume. It sounds raw and visceral, just like I want it... it is just too "organic" and straightforward sounding as is. It needs that tiny bit of electronic augmentation I spoke of above. This brings my problem. I don't need an overpowering effect, I need something to keep on at all times and plays nice with the other kids in the pool. The Wampler and the BAT are incredibly transparent so I need a synth pedal that is as well. Despite all the chaos above, I can still hear my Bass' natural tone and feel and I don't want that to change if I add a pedal like this. Anyone know of a pedal to fit this bill? Any filter or synth box is cool. Throw whatever you've got at me, I know nothing about pedals like these. Something preferably easy to find used though. From reading the threads on here the Red Ripper was suggested, and after looking it up on YouTube it seems to work well. Is that a pedal that maintains its electronic bite + filtering even at lower volumes?
