    Hello folks.
    I'm going to play in a Skunk Anansie tribute band and I was wandering: do you guys know which effects is Cass using in the song Secretly?
    I achive a similar tone by using the Akai SB-1's octaver, Bass Whammy octaver, a bit of overdrive (SansAmp) and a delay (Line 6 DL4).
    Does anybody know what he utilized?
    I'd be curious to take a look at his pedalboard...

    I think I heard there was a Bass Whammy used somewhere :meh: Don't quote me on it though.

    listening to the track, as far as I can tell, it seems like there's OD and delay. I can't hear much Octave stuff going on.

    maybe I'm just tired, too...

    Cas used a Sanaamp and a Big Muff, plus many more pedals thet I can't remember. He also ran two rigs, one clean and one dirty.

    I thinkg the strange tone is given by a sort of bad-tracking octaver.
  7. I don't know exactly what pedals Cass uses on this track. The man used a lot of effects..

    I like his sound on this track and I did come close to this sound once by using a Digitech BSW. I don't remember exactly what settings, because I returned the pedal. But it was in one of the 'synth' modes with the 'range' knob all the way open. It gave me the same dark overdriven tone. Put a delay after that and there you have it! :bassist:
