Can someone identify this effect? (mp3 inside)

    The bass comes in at about 0:06 in the following mp3.

    What effect is that? I suppose it's some sort of overdrive but it sounds unlike what I've heard before. Any suggestions on what might produce a similar sound?

    yeah i hear it and i like it. theres probably a few ways of getting that sound, like through overdriving, but im thinking it might be a fuzz at low drive. check out the clips of the chunk systems brown dog bass fuzz here: http://www.chunk.com.au/bd.htm . i know its not exact but i think you can hear the essence of the sound you are looking for in some of the clips.

    anyway im sure someone will know the answer to this, good luck.

    Hmm.. Nice.

    Well, if it's any help: With my distortion-tone, I get the closest to that (not super-close, though) with the bridge pickup soloed, and the tone knob turned-down all the way (passive bass).

    I think it's a bass synth. You can mimic this with a Deep Impact.

    This is definitely a bass synth. Too sine wavy for a fuzz.
    The Akai Deep Impact might be a good start. Check akai's website, they have some samples.
     
  7. does sound a bit like one of the deep impact patches, but heavily compressed and with the treble wound down. Sounds cool!
