    Arrived Fri. and picked up yesterday. Here's a couple of sound clips, recorded thru mic input on laptop. I have no idea what the hiss is, I didn't notice it while playing.
    EDIT: Sorry! Forgot to post files...

  2. What is the viagra factor? I've been thinking about one of those to augment my bass synthy sounds.

    timmy tucker-It doesn't really track as much as sweeps. Sometimes the B begone other times it'll slap you in the face. Worth the money...I think so.

    The second clip has me very very interested. How much control do you have over he way that the filter is opening? It sounds as though its staggerring and creating a tremelo effect, like a seekwah/park wah/ obi variwah (spelling?). I'd love to hear any more clips you have.

    The envelope can be controlled with a footpedal. I'll try to post better sounding clips this weekend. I've got an MP3 converter somewhere on here.

    Here's more (better recorded) clips. The WMA files sound better than the mp3's. And they are huge, sorry. Note: This Thing requires a compresser, which I didn't have handy, so the sweeps sometimes fade to nothing. Also, I played with every knob on it but the 8 sliders (I've got a weak understanding of what they do).

    Those sound fantastic, especially the murf3.mp3 clip.

    Shall definitely put on on my 'to buy when I have cash to burn' list..

    #3 is all just a bass and the filter? That's wicked good bass synth. Is there anything else out there even close to this thing in abilities?

    Best,

    and here I was thinking "wow, something that can actually mangle a bass signal into credible pads." Well, that's $400 I won't have to spend now. . .

    Only thing I think that can do that is the Roland V-amp, sorta. There are 3 other Mooger Foogers designed to work with this thing, but even then you still are just warping the signal, not changing it.
