    Played a gig with an auto-wah/envelope filter last weekend. First time live with that effect, and I had it dialed in just right for the songs that needed it. Problem was that after I turned it off, I kept hearing it quack after notes during the next song.

    Ever happen to anyone else? Or is it just me?
  2. Donald Dunn had the same issue.

    "Phanton Quack Syndrome" - good name for a band.

    Agreed. Give everyone an envelope filter, even the drummer!

    Dude, when I first started playing bass I was playing with my Deadhead friend who had a Mutron. He used it on everything, rhythm, lead, slow blues, fast blues, country rocker, Dead tunes, Hot Tuna tunes, Mutron: engaged! By the last time I played with him I wanted to beat the living crap out of it with a baseball bat.

    wow. the sound has it's place but that's taking it somewhere else entirely. hope the phantom quacks don't force me to get to that point

    Oh, I thought it was a reboot of the 'Howard The Duck' franchise. Never mind.
