How to use noise generators / Oscillators ?

    Hey everyone, I am looking to do some new work with just a drum and bass (maybe guitarist) but I am thinking of trying more of an electronic pop sound. I have been looking at using some noise generators or oscillators in some pieces of a performance such as intros/outros, breakdowns, buildups and all around noise between songs just to keep things going.

    My question is: is there a way to tie these output only pedals into a bass rig so i dont need a dedicated amp? OR is there a pedal out there that will generate waves and stutters and noise but let me play over top of that generated noise without effecting the signal, maybe something with a blend knob ?

    (or does anyone wanna build me one?)

    I see nothing preventing you from plugging these into a Boss Line Selector blender pedal

    With an output only pedal can it go in an effects loop? The blender pedal wouldnt have anything plugged into the 'send' jack only the return, would that still work ?

    It works on the LS-2

    Yeah, the LS2 doesn't require anything to be plugged into the FX out ports. Or the FX return if you just want the FX Send ports, essentially giving you a signal splitter.

    I believe 4ms may have some products like this- Triwave Picogenerator, probably others.

    Okay. I just to be clear that this will allow me run both signals at the same time and have control over the level of both signals/ blend them ?
     
  8. Yep.

    Just plug the noise gen and your guitar signal into the LS-2's FX Return ports, use the knobs to set the levels, OUTPUT to the rest of the pedals/amp/whatever
