EHX Bass Mono Synth settings?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by dukey donkey, May 13, 2019.


  1. I've recently gotten an ehx bass mono synth and a moog ep-3 expression pedal... anyone have some good setting suggestions? I've fiddled around, but can't seem to get it dialed in like I want. I've also got it at the front of my pedal chain which includes a compressor, OD, distortion, and chorus...

    You have it in the right place in the chain. What are you trying to make it do/ What sounds are you trying to get
     
  3. ones that would be useful... least glitchy and cut through loud distorted guitars... I'm not using it for whole songs, but there are some parts like a bridge here and there... I'm pretty open, just want some ideas to play with...

    I just got one myself. I’ll let you know if I come up with anything useful.
    My first impression of it is: it does exactly what it says it will. How ever, I haven’t dialed anything in yet similar to what you described.
    Let me know if you came up with anything, too.

    I wanted this pedal but the sound demos sounds like a toy.

    I just unboxed mine and I can see many sleepless nights ahead. Thus far I like what it does but I can see it gonna need a lot dialin to get it right. I like the memory setup feature. At least you can save what you dial in.

    Not entirely sure where I read this but putting a compressor in front of it help A LOT. I find the tracking much better. I'm having a lot of fun with this pedal but (being kinda dumb here) I do want to try to get more sounds out of it...It's got the perfect PHAT gritty "synthy wow" tones but now I'm trying to figure out how to get some nice cleaner sounds out of it (this is not really a reasonable expectation...LOL!)

    I honestly haven’t used it as much as I wanted to since I last posted.
    Compression has helped (like dude said). I’ve had best results using it on the effects loop.

    "New MicoSynth and Bass MicroSynth Templates and sample settings are now on the EHX site.
    Lots of fun Synth settings and effects.

    There is also a blank template page for you to record your own settings.

    And I found this Video to be really helpful in getting my head around HOW it works and what the sliders do:

    I believe we're talking about the mono synth, a product introduced within the last 3 years, not the micro that goes back to a high voltage ac plug in model that Mark Sandman (Morphine) used as a part of his sound. I have a more modern micro and a mono, the mono has been worth the money in fun, but it's only sound not done better by other pedals is the rotating speaker...which can be used musically as a radical change. It gets into whomp- whomp-whomp territory.

    My bad! I did a search for EHX Bass Micro Synth settings and this came up; was unaware of the Mono synth...
