Anyone know if the there is a big difference between the two?
Hey bro! There was a thread about this not to long ago so this link should answer your questions.
Personally, I love my SYB-3. Haven't tried the 5 but I hear its tracking is hit or miss. The SYB-3 IMO isnt bad tracking.
I just bought a "3" from the classifieds based on a review somewhere that described it as more "analog" than the "5." Also: pretty cheap. I guess I won't know for a few days, although I guess it didn't thrill the guy who sold it to me.
It may sound more analog, but the circuitry is def. digital. I can make it sound like an analog synth(to an extent) but it can range the gambit to crazy tripping out fuzz saw wave sound. IME of course This is actually one of my most used pedals on my board.
No, I didn't at all know how it works. I was just talking sound. I am excited about it. Let me find where I saw that review...
Here you go:
Yup, I knew what you meant. I just wanted to clarify that it is not an analog pedal(someone suggested that not to long ago.) But you can make it sound analogish.
Thanks for the link to the previous thread. I was really wondering if the syb-5 had was really that updated and sounded better than the older one. I know Mike Gordon used a syb-3. I sold my akai deep impact when it was worth $300.00 and need some killer synth sounds.
P.S.- I just found the search function
I'm with the SYB-3 sounds better camp. Seemed to me like it had warmer tones, and the tracking (while still abysmal) was better in that it didn't sound as bad when it mis-tracked.
No worries bro, I saw you were somewhat new, so I thought the link would help.
syb 5 is garbage
Any reasons for that? Sound bad? etc.
Look up user Kulten on youtube - my replies 17 & 19 in the thread linked above have some useful info & sounds from him.
you tube is a source that I never think about when checking out effects. Thanks. The more and more I look at these the more and more I think I should get something different. Does anyone think better of any of the other synth pedals out there?
I need something that will give my bass sounds like a keyboard would have.
You might be happier with a analog pedal, like the Bass Microsynth from EHX.
You know that never crossed my mind. I had one from the early 80's that was stolen along with a loaded pedal board that would make most cry. The new XO version looks smaller too.
No prob, glad to help. The XO is also true bypass I believe. Honestly, I'm not a big believe that it improves your tone, but it makes thing easier IMHO.
The number ?
