But I hope I'm wrong. OK here goes...a long time ago, maybe '92, I was at a bass demonstration/live radio broadcast with Brian Bromberg. He was doing some killer tapping, but what was really cool was he had some kind of effects processor which made a clicking sound on the attack of each note. I seem to remember it was possibly a certain compressor/limiter/gate with some kind of proprietary circuit for this effect, but that was a long time ago, I was a real beginner then and I've killed a LOT of brain cells since then (but only the weak ones, yuck yuck). My question, of course, is, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!?! I mean, what was it? Also, has anyone used more exotic effects such as a vocoder, ring mod, notch filter, whatever? I guess I'm asking what are some ideas for more exotic effects, besides the usual suspects, esp. rackmounted...Thanx!
