Well, are you willing to admit you have one and like it?
What do you mean by synth bass? Many of us have *synth* pedals, & a few dabble in keys. I don't know of a synth that's made specifically for bass parts, though.
Maybe he's talking about a bass guitar with built-in pitch-to-MIDI converters, like the Steve Chick fret-sensing basses...aka, Peavey DataBass, Peavey MIDIbass, the Wal and Yamaha equivalents, etc? Or perhaps the Roland GR-33B? Hell, I wish I had any one of those babies!
I have an old Yamaha DX21 synth for working on my synth bass lines. It's good to be versatile these days.
I've got a Roland synth pickup which I installed on my Carvin 4 string. Honestly, I don't use it very often, but I think that's because I have been running it through a V-Bass setup, which, IMO, does not have very good patches. Hopefully I can eventually upgrade to a Roland pedal which has instrument modeling.
My Line 6 Variax bass has a couple of pretty spectacular synth models. They track well, have many variables to adjust, and sound funky man.
I have a Midibase. It's pretty neat, but I'm afraid to take it out of the house and have something terrible happen to it, so all I can do is come up with neat ideas I can never duplicate with the band.
I played a Moog Rogue in the Eighties. It could sound a little thin live but I liked it.
This cute little Asian girl does a nice job on the bass pedals.
I'd be very curious what a "Japan's Got Talent" would be like.
i have a couple of synth basses...
novation bass station, yamaha CS01, Korg mini 700, roland SH1000,2000, yamaha SY1... and many more
