    hello,
    questioning myself how to get this sound ;

    http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8KER3b7FUo&NR=1

    thinking of octaver, phaser end a fuzz.
    but I 'm not advanced enough to know it for sure and don 't want to spent 500$ on pedals i don 't need.

    ty for helping me out !

    err.. bad link.

    As far as I can hear there is no phasing on the bass in that clip. You will have better luck with a lowpass/envelope filter instead. There are alot of different ways to pull of such sounds all ranging from cheap to very expensive. Do a search on "dubstep wobble" and I'm sure you will find alot of information and suggestions on how to achieve them.

    Sounds to me like a synth. I also do not hear a phaser. You might get close with the following:

    - tremolo set to a lopsided triangle. (like /|/|/|/| instead of /\/\/\/\/).
    - some sort of pitch shifter set to an octave down. Boss oc-2 with the straight signal cut out might do the trick.
    - some sort of drive, but not a heavy one.

    sT drogo, do you thing that a
    oc-2 => muffisch fuzz (low sustain) or some drive
    (tell me one if you know a better drive to do this) => ehx stereo pulsar ?

    I'd say you are not going to get that exact tone with a bassguitar, but you might get something in the ballpark. The pulsar i think has that lopsided triangle wave so might be a good choice. Just keep in mind though, that you are not going to get the little breakdowns where the rhythm of the tremolo-like effect seems to change. i'd say that's either programmed or perhaps some sort of envelope controlled effect.

    Also, I'd use a different dirt pedal than a muff. I'd say more of a light overdrive than a fuzz. Something like maybe a rat or a sansamp bass driver set to low gain.

    Anyway, half the fun is experimenting with effects to find certain sound you like. So allez. Experiment :D
