    Out of all the effects toys you've ever used, that are "triggered" (ie off the input, from your bass), which have you found to be the most reliable in terms of tracking? The nuances of that question are:

    a) triggering consistently and reliably
    b) avoiding false triggers and "bouncing"
    c) detecting machine-gun fingerstyle
    d) detecting slap

    This question applies to the "threshold-type" as well as the "gating-type" triggers, as used on envelope filters and so on.
