akin to that in this video, without using a multi-effect processor?
With a bass guitar?
I'm going to go ahead and say no... i'm not an expert but you'd need multiple effects or a midi bass or something to get this sound
If you just want the 'vibe' sound.. how about a vibe pedal? Am I missing something here?
The 'Vintage Vibe Stage Vibe' in the video is apparently a 'recreation of the original 1960's tremolo' so I was a bit confused by your post. Is the Fender Rhodes supposed to mimic the sound of vibes?(or are the keys/hammers hitting vibes instead of strings?) I'd never thought of it but I can see the similarity in sound.
As far as sounding like vibes, I guess you could get kind of close with a hog or other harmonizer with the right kind of envelope controlling the attack and shaping the sound. I think a multi like the gr20 or something would be the best bet, but the HOG and POG have a similar tone and using the +octave and envelope section (or even just the 'spectral gate), and a little reverb you can dial in a vibey sound.
You will probably not be able to make your bass sound like a Fender Rhodes no matter what you do with it but you can get some "Rhodes like" tones using false harmonics.
I'd forget about it, or learn to play the Rhodes.
Well, my jazz instructor has a piano similar to this (in looks, at the very least), and it has a vibes-simulation switch and chorus, plus some other modulation I can't remember at the moment. As for how this particular unit makes the vibe sound, I cannot say with certainty.
didnt say it would be cheap!, but you said no fx processor
This Maybe will duplicate the rhodes vibrato effect
A Pbass with rounds played softly near the octave mark, through a POG with a little high octave (but not much), a little tremolo and a light phase might sound quite Rhodes-esque; if you have the cash to drop then I say it's worth the experiment.
EDIT: well, I saw your following posts and I can't think of a way to make a bass sound like that, it's the wrong pitch, and the attack-decay times don't fit. sorry I can't be more helpful.
but are you trying to actually make a bass sound like a set of vibes
you gonna need a synth. (I owned a roland gr-33b for some time, they're fun)
Okay, now I'm confusing myself. I must apologize, everyone. :scowl:

you still gonna need a synth bass or some sort of midi device
Hmm, after research, it seems the Rhodes is precisely the sound I'm after.
Well, unless anyone has any further ideas, I guess I'll close up shop here. Thanks for your ideas anyway.
You'd have to play a lot with pitch to midi effect processors.
