Porn vibe sound?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by jodathmorr, Jan 14, 2003.


  1. Its prolly on this board somewhere but I was wondering which effects you would need to use to create that scratchy, modulated, 70s, bass stuff.

    Most people call it "The Porno Vibe". Does it have a real name?

    I would imagine its a phaser pedal hooked into a wah wah pedal. Is it? If it is how do you get that really high pitched (for a bass atleast) sound?

    That would be an enveloppe filter or an autowah

    With my old band we had a habit of playing porn music in soundchecks - so from my experience the best way to get a porn vibe is actually with clean bass and constantly wah'd guitar (and of course a funky drummer). The alternative is to use an envelope filter and have clean guitar but that's much less cliched and porno IMO.

    Check out an album called 'Pornosonic' by the god of porn stars, Ron Jeremy. This makes good use of manual wah on bass. To complete the porn line up you need clean wah guitar, drums, organ/clavinet, maybe a synth for lush strings, and a couple of hot girlies for sound fx :eek:
