    I am in a 80's cover band, I would like to know what type of effects pedal would be good to use for that midi Keyboard/bass sound that is in a lot of 80's tunes?

    2 scenarios would help a lot with that: Chorus and an Envelope Filter if you want to retain a lot of your bass's natural sound and playing expression, albeit effected -- or an Akai Deep Impact if you want to completely synth up the sound.
    Note you can mix dry signal with the Impact's output as well, but it'll kind of sound layered.

    do a search on synths, there are many types of bass synths around, but not all of them are good.
