    Yeah, no thanks. Most of the voices kind of made me shudder. I play a precision, and thought that setting was probably the most realistic comparatively. Same with the Mel9. They sound too synthetic, but could be useful for someone's soundscape! I've got a pitchfork that sounds passable for my uses when buried under a stack of modulation.

    As opposed to this pedal, that guitarist would be better off using click tracks instead. Then you can have what ever accompaniment you want the same way all the time. I’m a lot more worried about that than this pedal.

    Pitchfork? Tough crowds round your way?

    Well, I'm selling my basses in favour of guitars.

    It doesn't really make sense in a band context because you still need someone playing the bass LINE through a capable amp even if they are not a bassIST. So if you need a bass line on every song it's not really much more expensive to make the worst guitarist buy the cheapest bass they can find. It worked for Macca...
  7. No worries. Keyboards/Pianos have been playing the bass range with their left hand forever.
