    Here's a good starter for making the walls vibrate.
    Works best for slower passages with longer notes.


    Number 3 - Synth1.
    sensitivity 3 o'clcock
    control 3 oclock
    range 8-9 oclock

    PS DO BE CAREFUL OF YOUR SPEAKERS THOUGH- I always use a compressor at higher volumes to keep it in check.

    Let us know anything you find.

    I have a lot of trouble getting a decent wah sound that isn't too high endy. I don't know if I like this pedal much anymore... :(


    The octave is still kick ass though. :)

    Try this wah sound:

    Sens 9:00
    Control 1:00
    Range 7:30
    Type 1

    It's the only wah on it that I like. I guess that's why it's a Synth Wah and not a Wah Synth. Too much emphasis on the synth and not enough on the wah if you ask me.

    I was hoping for a more floaty/sustainy synth sound to go with all the over the top flashy ones. I know their is a slow synth, but it's still too "in your face". :meh:

    yeah, the synth sounds aren't that great. But for $80, I look on it as a great octaver with extras.

    True. the octave does make it worth 80 bucks. And some synth stuff in case you wanna freak out the neighbors. :D

    ive found a really cool synth tone

    SENS - 6
    CONTROL - 11
    RANGE - 4
    TYPE - 6


    lol the control knobs go to 11!


    edit: the number = the notch that the knob is pointed at
