    Mornin' I have a Digitech synthwah. This pedal has a muliple effects and some of these effects are tiggered in that if play hard on a string you get a little extra sound, octave change, lazer like noise, or whatever. At any rate I was experimenting with it with a newly acquired EBMM Bongo, I think basically there is no hope for this pedal anymore. It seems like the signal coming from the Bongo is too hot and triggers the effects even when I do not want to trigger them (which is most of the time). Aside from turning the volume down on the bass and boosting the amp is there much hope for making this a useful pedal with the Bongo ? Thanks.

    Simple but you havent mentioned it, have you tried tweaking the sensitivity knob on the actual pedal???

    Yeah, if you turn down the sensitivity knob down all the way, it *should* be fine.

    Ah, yes of course. I should have mentioned that. That of course is the problem. Even with the sensitivity knob turned down all the way there I still have to play very evenly and lightly or else I trigger it.

    i just had this pedal and didnt really get on with it so i traded it, but not because there was a problem with it, i just found it a bit unusable in my music.

    errrrm, maybe your bass is just too strong a signal going into the digitech, maybe a limiter before the digitech will solve the problem?
     
  6. Leave the Bongo EQs in the centre detents too, boosting those suckers really packs a punch into the signal!

    Otherwise, sounds like you need a compressor or a limiter.

    Thanks. I have a compressor so I will try that. Will try level eqs too.
