    I'm trying to identify the effect used on the bass track for "Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo. Does anyone have any idea what it is?

    It sounds a bit like an octaver, with the note an octave *above* the original being added in, but I'm not sure.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    he used a Wal, and a synth played the middle 8 section, and I guess doubled the bassline in the verses too, so not an effect as such.
