    Hoping to get some help from any thundercat fans in the house who happen to own a Manta. Hoping to get as close as I can to his amazing filter sound. Got mine yesterday and am still getting used to how to dial tones in. any advice would greatly appreciated! :D

    This on my list of sounds to dial in. My list is way longer than time I have, go figure. I'd love to figure this one out as well.

    He uses (or at least DID use) a Moog LPF. And for what it's worth, I think the Manta is a great envelope filter. But one sound I couldn't dial in was this sort of "gurgly" tone. The manta was much cleaner sounding.

    I totally dig Thundercat (and his artcore bass). He plays with everyone from Kendrick Lamar to the Suicidal Tendencies to Flying Lotus... amazing bassist.
