Spent some time at the local CG and Sam Ash trying out some fx pedals. I have been looking for a compact unit to supply me with the usual: nice chorus, octave divider, envelope filter, etc.. one thing i insist on is true bypass. I cannot stand the way most of these things make your $3000 bass sound like a $300 one. So, i tried the BossME-50 B - it's ok, but you can't really mix in all the fx with the dry signal. The flangers added all kinds of lo end boom etc.. it was not what i needed. I tried the Line Filter Modeler and maybe I am stupid, but it's the second time i sit with one and i can't find ONE usable sound. I found it to be a total waste of time. I even just sat with my V bass as a multi FX unti and still can't seem to find hi fidelity effects that i can use and tweak, mind you, with the V bass pickup installed on a bass, the unit is wonderful, but it is supposed to be a stand alone multi-fx as well. Seems the only thing i have had that works well is a set of stomp boxes- the EBS bunch i had worked well, with the octaver, Bass IQ and Chorus- but alas, i could not save several settings into any kind of memory- so the Bass IQ for example, always had teh same sound dialed in... am i missing something? is there anything that i should check out? anyone else unimpressed with the current state of bass effects?
