    i'm confused between envelope filters and bass wah and bass synth. does the digitech do all 3? are they different? some say that the akai deep impact is a synth, but i've read that it as a mu tron preset, but that's an envelop filter isnt it? are there other ways to get a good funky sound with synth qualities such as combining an envelope and an octave pedal and perhaps chorus?

    Some fuzz never hurts...if you want to approximate a synth sound by chaining fx you'll need to experiment for yourself to see what you like. But, yeah, you can fool with an Envelope Filter, Octave, some Chorus, (not necessarily in that order) and start to get at some kind of synthy sounds...
