    Does anyone know what set of effects I can use to get the sound of Marco from Nightwish on the cd "Once" or "Century Child"?
    Thx! :bassist:

  3. Possibly synth or an envelope filter of some kind and compression........

    Mild distortion and compression...Oh, and mid frequencies

    Yeah, it sounds like mild compression with a distortion with a lot of overtones. If i had a compressor, I could probably get that effect using my PD-7.

    Thanks guys!
    Just got a GT-6B last week and I'm sure that sound is somewhere in there but I needed a starting point as I am new to the world of multi-fx processors. If anyone else has any insight or specific Gt-6B suggestions, its always appreciated. :bassist:

    Marco is definately undervalued as a bass player. Everything I hear about Nightwish falls into two categories: "OMG that chick is h0t!!!!" and "OMG that keyboardist rulz!!!!"

    :rollno:
