What exacly is a envelope filter?
It makes a drippy like sound... kinda like "bwow bwow" if you catch my drift.
Which filter would you guys select, the Mini Q, Q-tron, or Q-tron+?
Well the Q-Tron + seems the best because it's the normal Q-Tron, with an extra feature that lets you choose between a "slow" kind of fliter and the "fast" one of the original Q-Tron, and also an FX loop to plug another pedal into it.
I have the original Q-Tron and it's great.
I'm not sure "bwow bwow" qualifies as "exactly" what an envelope filter is, or not.
Here's a slightly more detailed explanation:
I snagged one of these from KB from the For Sale forum, and it should be waiting for me when I get home today.
bwow bwow, indeed.
Yeah -- I'd say it's more like
I know for a fact that I've heard "bworp," and "deeeooowahk" on more than one occassion.
Lets get a hoo-rah for onomatopoeia!
I think the Bworp would be the 'downward' envelope response, and the Beeowp would be 'upward'.
Hey - you learning anything, Semborg?
hehe, yeah a little bit.
But I think I need to hear it to understand it properly.
Think of a rather excellent after supper belch, with added squelch, then blended with the 'quack' of a Mallard, and you''ll be on the right track
An easy, simplified way of describing it?
It's like a Wah Wah pedal that reacts automatically to the notes you play. Providing one is familiar with a Wah Wah this should help a bit.
aha, now I get it much more clearly!
So it's a kind of wah wah, that reacts automatically.
Thank you guys
That was a lot easier than saying "bwow bwow" eh?
No one has mentioned the fact that the envelope filter effect is sensitive to how hard you play the notes...play harder and you get more of the effect.
Edit: I guess it was mentioned in bassmonkee's link, but I thought that it should be mentioned here as well.
I think it's more of a "Khwow"... atleasy that's the sound I get from Bassballs.
Or maybe a Beyowoop...
no... that's Looney Tunes...
'Khwow' - with a "K"? ..Must be a pick player.
nope... all fingers all the time...
I use Stainless Strings, and my lakland has a pretty sharp attack.
I think you'll find i take the biscuit for the best description
biscuit? or a crumpet?
