    I hope the answer to this does not turn out to be "keyboards"!

    Does anyone happen to know what type of bass and more-importantly bass effects
    did John Lee use for the song "Suite" on the Eleventh House album "Level One"?

    I know that I have Google'd this before and would still like to know what he was using.
    Was kind of a "signature sound" for Lee around that time, I believe. Any help appreciated!

    Is this the tune? (It's Friday, I'm winding down here at work)



    If so, that's definitely effected bass in there with the keyboard and other instruments. I have some guesses about the FX used, but will leave it to the real experts to help you.

    I kinda follow vintage synths and I have never heard of this one before - thanks!
    For instance, I have one of these ( funny how the electronics controls looked in those days )

    Time to pull out my Moogerfoogers!
     
  6. Now that I have listened to the track I am of the opinion that sound effect is the EHX PolyPhase.

    After searching for that sound for many years I recreated it on my Zooms using a subtle envelope filter into a bi-phase model into a lofi amp model.
