  3. It's called the Altec-loaded B25B/B25B and it would give me that tone with a tiny, high-power amp and cab at any volume up to and including super loud.

    The one pedal I would love but that isn't available as far as I know is a bass whammy type pedal that is octave up and down only where the expression pedal controls wet/dry instead of pitch.

    Bonus points if you could set different mixes for the maximum travel of the pedal.
  8. Oddly enough, that's not a fantasy pedal - just one that doesn't have a high enough demand for anybody to want to build. Fairly simple circuitry could get it done.

    That one already said. Getting a database, and if you're in a cover band, it nails the tone of the bass on the original recording. And of course, some sort of autotune, i e that if it was a alternate tuned or dropped tuned bass, it makes up for that too, without having to adjust tuners. However, I would like to have some pre requisites. That you tell the pedal beforehand which song it is, and it doesn't have to guess it. It takes a while until you've started playing it, before it guesses. It must nail it at the intro (say Walk On The Wild Side).

    And I would like to have the option, that it dials in a tone that hasn't been used before, with the sum/calculation of all that databases tones together. Something new....and then I lock it down, to my patent....;)

    EDIT: I do think that a pedal that will mimick perfectly each and every bass there is would be awesome. Ric sound on a Hofner bass, Dingwall sound on a Ukulele bass, and upright sound on any.... Skipping to have switch out pickups for this and that punch and timbre. Or by other basses.

    I'd love to see some sort of completely ridiculous vocalizing pedal like Korg's Hatsune Miku stomp, but with a mic input to record your own sound clips- kind of like a sampling keyboard, but for your bass.

    Nevermind the wealth of actual musical implications- just imagine backing someone up with a symphony of farts, then look me in the eye and tell me you don't want that.

    A primarily analog signal path, voice-activated pedal that could take direction from me to execute any tone or sound I need - sort of an advanced audible interface multi-effect that could combine everything from effects to EQ to amp/cab sim simply by speaking instructions into a small Bluetooth mic.

    Multi-band filter based distortion with LFO, envelope following and expression options for 0-all frequency bands.

    A pedal that combines ABY with tremolo, with ability to set phase of tremolo between the two channels. With expression pedal input that can be used to set the rate, or the pan between the two channels.

    With this you can run wet/dry, A/B or A+B, as well as panning stereo trem, synced trem, trem on only one channel, variable rate via exp, variable pan via exp, or constant volume on one channel and variable volume/trem on the other. So many combinations.

    It would be my Panda Audio Future Impact, but with more footswitchable options and including everything my Akai Headrush does, plus... I don't know, maybe a ring modulator, a rotary simulator, and everything that was in my old SubDecay Prometheus DLX (I never used it live but I still miss that one, hours of filter fun). And anything else I've forgotten about but really liked at the time.

    Cool ideas, people. Keep 'em coming, who knows if the builders are considering to mass produce your dream pedals :D

    Basically a Boss RC-300 but with the effects I want in it (PLL, MA CT5, you get the drift).
