    The envelope filter IMO, sounds a lot like an auto-wah wah pedal with a watery vocal sound that changes with how hard or soft you pick your bass. A bass synth makes your bass sound like a keyboard, some examples of a bass synth:

    an example of an electro-harmonix bassballs envelope filter:

    The best way to explain them is to hear them in action.
