    Trio+ for bass.

    There are drawbacks, mostly that there will be a bit of delay, so it's not good for slapping.

    My dream pedal would be something that gives a modern country sound, the Nashville sound.

    After spending a couple of hours reviewing such pedals that attempt to achieve this I'm convinced that no pedal exists that will truly get the job done and actually sound like a 5-string bass.

    pretty much a midi controllable octave pedal that sounds Analogue, particularly like the SUB-T or OC-2. Just make it midi capable :)

    A fuzz chorus and delay in one box.
  8. Shooting from my hip here -

    A TC Electronic pedal that can load 4 or 5 toneprints at once. One knob and footswitch per toneprint. Editor software.

    Mine would have 2 12ax7 tubes. One for full fledged compressor with attack, release, gain, level, and threshold. The other tube would be for the overdrive. This pedal would have two different overdrive channels and also a direct out.
    OH and the overdrive channels would have gain, bass, treble, and mid control

    I don't think anyone's said this but a pedal with 1 knob. At 12oclock, there's no effect. All the way clockwise and you get a fresh out of the package string sound (and everything in between). All the way counter clockwise and you get a super thumpy tone (and everything in between). I'm not talking about a tone knob, I'm talking about getting that sparkle out of your string that only new strings have as well as the real thump that only old gunky strings have.

    A pedal that shuts down Autotune on vocals in real time. Just imagine the face of the vocalists, they would actually need to sing in tune... :nailbiting:

    My single solution fantasy pedal would be a Swiss Army knife for the gigging bassist. It would include:

    Inputs: 1/4 mono and stereo (Aux) inputs. -15db input pad on both, gain control for both

    Tuner: Polytune style with a mute function

    Preamp: 3 band EQ, parametric mids, HPF with variable Q, switchable clean boost with gain control.

    Compressor: 1176 style, pre/post EQ insert switch.

    Headphone amp: 1/4 headphone output, volume control for inst and aux, auto- limiter on headphone output.

    Outputs: Master volume, 1/4 output, parallel thru (unaffected) output, pre post EQ switch for XLR DI output with volume control.

    Power: phantom power or 9v DC or battery.

    In as small a box as possible!

  19. On bass? A pedal that makes me sound like Lemmy.

    On guitar? A distortion and overdrive that makes it easy to get Billy Corgan's sound from Siamese Dream.

    This is so true. What I would like is for amp makers to implement parallel effects loops with a master blend knob. Last rehearsal I played just bass-amp-cab, and the presence, immediacy and detail of the bass was obvious. And I wasn't the only one to notice. A parallel loop would allow adding a 'wet' layer on top rather than sending the whole thing through endless buffers and long cables.
