Which pedal to get this sound (Magma)

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Hydromantic, Mar 14, 2009.


  1. Hello!

    I ask for your help because I'd like to get a particular sound and I'm not sure about which effect it is... Auto-wah? Envelope filter?

    It's the sound from a song by Magma called "Soleil d'Ork" (Udu Wudu). You can hear the song here: http://www.deezer.com/track/251739

    There's a second bass with a kind of wah sound, which pedal could give me this sound?

    Thanks for your help :smug:

    Ahh, what a great band. One of my favorites. :bassist:

    Pretty sure almost any envelope filter will do it, but I'll let somone else comment on that.
     
  3. Sure it's a great band, and I love this album!! :)

    Many, many different envelope filters to choose from to get that sound.
     
  5. Could you recommand me a cheap but good one? A Mini Q-Tron would be ok?

    What's your price range?
     
  7. Hum less than 100 dollars if it's possible?

    Gotcha. Well then I would try out the EH line of filters. Personally I'm not a fan of them, but they get a lot of love around here.

    A DOD 440 is pretty nice for cheap, I used it for many years.
     
  9. Oh yes... Johnny Greenwood's one, I searched for a DOD 440 for my guitar but I gave up, it seems that it's quite hard to find isn't it?

    Not sure...last time I checked or played with one was over 10 years ago ;)

    What about buying used? My favorite at the moment is the Emma. Around $225 new (they used to be around $179) but can be found cheaper on ebay. Great sounding filter, very organic.
     
  11. Oh yes I heard about it but it's definately too expansive for me :/

    If I see a DOD 440, I won't hesitate! :)

    Well just make sure to try before you buy. :) Filters can sound drastically different.
     
  13. Yes ;)

    Maybe someone could recommand me a model from the Electro Harmonix range? It's easier to find...

    Offtopic:

    Hydro, I wouldn't quite consider that prog rock. Sounds more like post-goth metal (maybe even some modern cabaret influence) or "indie" to me.

  16. wait, was that meant to be an insult?


    oh yeah, try the Micro Qtron if you can, maybe a DOD fx25(b)

    There are a few DOD 440 clones out there, such as the Tonefactor 442 (red version for bass), Boomstick Bottom Feeder, and BYOC sell a kit if you can handle a soldering iron!
     
  18. What are you talking about? My music? "Post goth metal", what a label?? :p
    "Indie", I've never understood this label I admit... Anyway, people tell me that it's a kind of prog rock so I just repeat what I heard ;)

    Beside that, thanks for your recommandations :smug:
