MXR M82 vs EBS BassIQ...Ease of operation ?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ezra1, Nov 6, 2017.

  1. I am a novice with Envelope Filters.
    Which of these would be the easiest to use ?

    The BassIQ, indeed. Also I like it more 'cause it features a "down" envelope mode.
  3. Thanks
    Anyone else ?
  4. Yes it has more controls, but the MXR really isn't at all difficult to dial in a great envelope tone. Personally I prefer the sound of the MXR over the EBS, but it may also come down to whether you're going to be needing the downsweep?

    I’ve got both. The EBS is easier/quicker to dial in, but once you get the hang of the MXR, it’s not that difficult at all.
  6. I ended up ordering both of them.
