Digitech EX-7 OK for bass?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by nappingcracker, Feb 7, 2006.

  1. I saw a post here a while back about this, and I need a replacement for my current crappy wah (mates finally said - "you have to stop that" - referring to the true bypass amp 'click' when engaging the wah).

    How does this thing work for bass? anyone tried it? I have read that it should be before destortion, so it tracks better, which makes me sad because I normally run my synth into my wah.

    I have not been able to find any info regarding bass on the digitech ex7. Whatcha think? (whatch think on non-standard wah replacements in general)

    I tried one out recently, but i didnt use the wah modes (I've got a wah I like) but i did play around with the whammy and Xp-300 settings which both sounded really awesome. I personally will be picking up one (if I ever have money again). I didnt notice signal loss (but testing in a store never really does it the same). The only problem I had is that the pedal is really stiff so it needs some working in to operate smoothly. Sorry I couldnt really give any advice on the pedal.
  3. the xp-300 was a major bling point for me, If I could use it for wah and the space wierdness, I could save room and rock the block.

    yea - 1
    nay - 0

    I really liked the XP300 setting which is pretty much why I want one, the Leslie, Flanger, and Whammy settings are all just bonuses. But that XP setting is pretty wild I was able to do some cool things with that effect going. If you like ambient music you'll see what I'm talking about

    Hot damn, that looks awesome. I wonder how well the Whammy modes sound in comparison to the actual thing... The Leslie emulation looks sweet too.

    I wonder how good the sound quality is on this thing, my experience with DigiTech is that their emulation usually sucks... This thing looks damn cool though, I hope it's not the case here.
