1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Anyone try the soundblocks 2 manta? I'm interested in a manta vs Bass envelope filter pro. Anyone have experience with both?

    Lots of information on here:

    and here

    I think the bottom line is that it is extremely well received. Personally, I like it better than the Source Audio BEF Pro that I had before. Certainly a better size and integrates well with the other SB2 pedals and the new hub.

    Manta is the way to go at the moment. And with the SA midi hub connectivity, you can have 128 saved presets, controlled by a midi switcher. Totally worth it IMO.

    Thanks guys! Looks like I'm going with manta. I have only a small space on my pedalboard left. So looks like it's an easy decision.

    I have both (and i'm keeping both of them) and if I had to pick just one, although the BEF Pro is just as good, i'd go with the manta.
