    Hey guys,

    Im trying to pull off these sounds live.

    Im thinking that the Roland V Bass system will be able to emulate these the best out of multi effects pedals.

    Besides this i think the only way is midi. And im also thinking about running both which would mask each other.

    but if anyone has sampels of what the V bass can do please send.

    Thanks alot once again guys.
     
  2. The vbass is not midi, however after listening to your examples, it sounds like many of those tones can be found in the vbass.

    Anyone using this pedal? I have a jones for a synth that will provide more background effect than a "bass synth" sound--wind, strings, horns, ping pong balls, Is this pedal worth the hassle?

    I've heard sound clips at the Roland site and found a nice string sound but wanted to find out if it's capable of the other sounds I mentioned.

    Thanks!

    It doesn't do ping pong balls etc. For that you need a 13 pin pickup and a midi converter and a synth module. Roland GI, Axon, and Shadow are names to research.

    Are 13 pin pickups limited to the Roland type?

    No, Roland and Yamaha make the ugly ones. You can get nice piezo internal ones from RMC and maybe Shadow.
