Which one do you prefer and why?
Manual all the way. I feel much more a part of the sound when I'm actually controling the effect.
Auto, if only cus the manual on the POD ***** *** on bass.
Got me the RATM Calm Like A Bomb using the auto, so I can't complain much.
Auto! I'm not coordinated enough, and my EBS bassiq does that auto thing well enough for me.
i like both for different reasons.
the pedal wah has quite a bit more potential for expressiveness.
the auto wah is great for laying down a "quacky" groove. the auto wah is a lot more consistent than my foot.
i have both and use the auto wah more.
I like to be able to control my effects in real time.
I already have too many modulations going, so I'd rather have the manual wah. On the other hand, trying to "tap dance" your pedals while still operating the manual looks plain silly.
Also, if you have a good touch, you can use a manual instead of an EQ for different parts of a song (it's really tricky with a 105q, but it sounds very dubby, like an env. filter with the sensitivity all the way down).
I like both but like manual better (depending on situation) because you have more control.
Incomparable. It's like asking which do you prefer out of the following:
I know that I can't live without one, I'm in love with another, and the third one tastes really good...
They both have their uses. For straight out funk I prefer the Auto wah aka env filter. The manual wah is for when I want more control (re: Calm Like a Bomb).
Envelope filter just doesnt work for me! It only makes my sound weirder...
But the manual wah is the real thing. You can control it and you can actualy make your bass say WAHHHHHH....
The auto one is like a metronome.
The auto VS. manual control makes them completely different effects.
Autowah...I'm looking for something that quacks while I play. Working off a touch sensitive device is fun...don't want to have to think about the foot movement, too.
I figured it out!!
1. You can live without Kenny Rogers.
2. Walnuts taste really good.
3. And... YOU LOVE LAMP!!
That's because he's Cold Lampin'!
Apparently, none of you have ever indulged in the deliciousness of halogen lamps
I actually prefer a lean cut of Kenny Rogers with some ketchup and black pepper. Really hits the spot, sometimes.
im guessing not many have seen anchorman lol.
Manual all the way for me. I know theyre different, but I just prefer the control a manual wah gives me.
