    right in the beginning.

    any effects that could accomplish this sound?
     
  2. Sounds a bit Moog Bass Murf-ish.
     
  3. I'm just guessing but a fuzz>bass murf

    I suppose a proper simple way would be through bass fuzz > either a manual wah (Starting at the high end frequency spectrum) descending to the low end, OR some form of descending touch wah :)

    There are other pedals that could cop a similar sound with a dirt pedal (Seek Wah, probably a Prometheus) but it sounds like that was made with a MuRF. It's not a random step like a S&H filter, it is clearly stepping through a sequence.

    I'd say a regular guitar MuRF would actually work best because there aren't much in the way of lows (it was probably a keyboard fed into a MuRF or similar synth patch) and with the envelope knob turned well past 5 to get that "backwards" sound.

    i figured its probably a synth. but was curious as to if i could copy that sound to a bass. sounds a bit complicated from the replies.

    Not complicated, just a bit expensive. Get a fuzz (a Muff variant would work well in adding some "white noise") and a MuRF and you can make that sound.
