I like fx I buy fx that I have no chance to use in a band setting just because I like to play with them I went to the GC Labor Day sale today and bought, for $49, an ... Alesis AirFX This thing is crazy! It's designed for djs, and it has 50 preset filters and phasers and flangers and synths and tremolos and wacko stuff. It works w/ an infrared beam that you move your hand through in 3 dimensions to change the tone. No knob tweaking!!! It's from the future!!! Of course, it's tough to use while you're playing bass because you use 2 hands to play bass. I thought about my pedalboard and tried moving my foot through the beam and that works fine, I've just got to get better at making small foot movements. Wowie Zowie what a fun effect!
