    just picked up an EH bass microsynth! Very cool pedal.

    I'm just wondering what some of your favorite settings are for it?
     
  2. My favourite setting: everything dimed (10) except attack delay off (0), sweep end approx. 3 and sweep rate approx. 7-8. Sounds very huge and reminds moog taurus a lot.
     
  3. Judas - I just tried your setting. It works well, but I thought having the Square Wave up so much added too much fuzz. I took the Square Wave down to 0 and it sounded great (there is still a decent amount of distortion even without the Square Wave).

    I have found myself gravitating to similar settings, but I tend to take both the Stop and the Rate to about 2.5.

    My one complaint about this device is that it does not come with any suggested settings in the instructions and although they have promised, EH has yet to publish any on the site. This makes it something of a seek and find for your sound.

    My Bass Micro Synth came with some suggested settings. Since I don't have a scanner at home, I just typed them up:
