    Searching for Synth's doesnt really yeild anything great, thread wise.

    First off, I wanna bitch about how Harmony Central organizes thier effects reviews. There's simply no quick & easy way to scan thru a given type of effect.

    So, does anyone have anything great to say about any particular synth stomp boxes?

    I've owned the 'big three' - Akai Deep Impact, EHX Bass Micro Synth, Korg G-5.

    They all have plusses an minuses. What are your critera - maybe I can help :)

    Well,

    We're adding a couple of songs to our setlist that the bass is heavily synth'd... So, I'd like to retain that quality for our version. Regarding qualities, I couldnt tell you what I want.... other than that. I know, I'm not much help. Sorry.

    At least I now have a list of the the main ones... That'll get me to a point where I can scan some reviews.

    Thx

    I've got the DigiTech Bass Synth Wah, and love it. It's not quite a versitile as some other ultra high-end synths, but it does it's job well, and is relatively cheap. It's also got a great octaver mode and some decent envelope filter/wah modes as a bonus. I'd say check it out.

    Line 6 FM4? Here is a page with some sound samples that sound interesting. This may e the next addition, but I'm not sure.

    I was looking at that Line 6 FM4 as well, i was more interested in whether it cut all your Bass out of the equation?

    I have the Deep Impact and the Bass Synth Wah, and for most of what I do, I strongly prefer the Deep Impact. The Bass Synth Wah does have a great octave down effect, though.

    P.S.
    I now have a POG on the way from the 'bay.

    yeah, the v-bass is almost worth getting for the synth sounds alone. It's not that they're uniformly excellent, but that the tracking is so damn good.

    Yeah, if you work with the V-Bass it's not that tough to improve them to the point where you can actually be more epxressive as well as sound way better.
