Synth pedal question

  1. Hello all!

    i am considering getting a synth pedal, and the sound i have in my head right now is something like either a taurus pedal or even the kind of bass pedal on a church organ...just a plain square wave!
    is there anything like that?

    I think you mean sine wave.
    Square wave has too many harmonics that makes it sound like if a fuzz is in the path... organ bass is closer to sine waves.

    Just my 2 cents.
  3. oh...i must be mistaken!
    well, either way, what i am thinking of is a sound like the bass pedals of a church organ, just a lot of bass, and no real tone and a bit synth sounding...does all this make sense?

    surely you guys have heard the bass pedals of a church organ!

    I don't know if there exists a single unit who does this. Some time ago, when I was looking for exactly the same thing (Taurus pedals) I ended up with the Roland PK5 midi footcontroller, and a separate analog synth module, the Waldorf Pulse. Very good!!
  5. but i am looking to make my bass sound that way...i am not looking for actual foot pedals...

    You can achieve this effect with the Roland V-bass system.

    The EH Microsynth can do this.

    A "slow gear" pedal (Guyatone makes one) plus a significant tone rolloff should do it, too.

    I should PM you about other stuff.
