looking at a new technical sound

    hi guys, looking at producing a very technical sound!

    first of all, i have just researched/purchased a moogerfooger mf101 (low pass filter) and a moog ep-2 expression pedal.

    the effect i am trying to achieve is the same sound as the synth here:

    skip to 2:42

    along with the moog filter and expression pedal (which will be used to control the cutoff frequency) i have looked into some other pedals that would give the bass a more 'sawtooth' waveform sound, (listen back to the track in link, for the metallic and raspy high end but deep and reverbed low end)

    the pedals i have looked into are:
    MXR Bass octave Deluxe (to give me the higher frequencys)
    Guyatone TZ2 Fuzz (which creates a sawtooth waveform)
    reverb (which would you suggest for the same sound as the track?)

    what other pedals would you suggest to get that sound?

    Cheers in advance!! ;)

    The octave pedal will give you an octave below what you play, lower not higher.

    The M288 Bass Octave Deluxe is a dual-voice octave pedal that offers analog tone, true bypass, and a variety of tonal options. MXR's 18 volt Constant Headroom Technology™ provides high headroom and superior tracking. Use the Dry knob to mix in your direct signal, and hit the Mid+ switch to add up to +14dB of internally adjustable mid frequencies (400Hz or 850Hz). Finally, mix in two separately controlled octave voices—Growl (for throaty tone) and Girth (for deep tone).

    bass open E is 40Hz

    is there any method of getting higher sounding frequencies? i heard roundwound strings can give higher frequencies

    You can boost higher frequencies with an eq.
    There are a number of pedals that will give you an octave up, EHX Micro POG, POG2, BMS, any number of multi-effects units, Markbass Super Synth, etc.

    Fuzz pedals will boost the higher frequencies a lot which then makes a filter much more pronounced.

    thanks for the reply, is there anyway i can get a fuzz pedal to only affect the higher frequencies so when i do a filter sweep it sounds much more like "building tension" (build up)
