    I hear a lot of envelope filter sound clips and demos in this forum, but not a lot of envelope filter in a live or recorded full mix. Let's hear yours! I'll start (if I mention bass, guitar, etc., understand that it's all keyboard):

    "Walk My Dog" - the envelope filter on bass is a Korg Synthepedal; on guitar is a Univox Effectmatic:

    "Instrumental Funky Filter Jam" - the envelope filter on both bass and guitar is a Multivox Big Jam Spit Wah:
    SoundClick player

    "Rudolph" - the envelope filter on bass is an EHX Q-Balls; on horns is a Line 6 Otto Filter:
    SoundClick player

    "Jesus Is The Reason Why" - the envelope filter on bass is an EHX Bi-Filter rack unit:

    Wow, @FilterFunk cool stuff. Some wet goodies there.

    I'll play. This one is an SA Manta.


    This one was a 3Leaf Proton driven by an IE Oxide


    And this is just the Proton

    Sweet! Love your stuff, particularly "Chasin' the Dawg."

    It's especially nice to hear that synthy down sweep from the Manta. The Proton sounds great driven and alone. I didn't know it could get so vocal-sounding.

    Yo! Philly
    Alright, I'll join in. Both recorded using a Pigtronix EP1 with clean side-chain input and a Fulltone Bass Drive for grit. Have sold the Bass Drive on but still have the EP1, although I have modded it since.

    Sounds good! I always thought the EP-1 was one of most filter-like envelope phasers.

    Really diggin' the music; very atypical in a good way.

    Alls I have is a few old tracks:

    _________________________________________________
    Recorded on a Korg D3200 DAW in a modest home studio with hardware synths and signal processors, 2008. An excuse to demo my then new Roscoe 5-string fretless bass and Moog MF-101 lowpass filter. As I play, the bass is triggering the MF-101's envelope follower, and I am changing its cutoff frequency with a CV pedal.



    _________________________________________________
    Recorded on a Korg D3200 DAW in a modest home studio with hardware synths and signal processors, 2009. Main bass is Roscoe LG-3000. Twin synths are Moog Little Phatty Stage II. Piano is Mellotron sample on Nord Wave. Envelope follower bass is 2008 American Standard Jazz Bass with heavy strings, Nordstrand pickups through Moog MF-101.



    _________________________________________________
    Recorded on a Korg D3200 DAW in a modest home studio with hardware synths and signal processors, 2009. Features two 5-string bass guitars: Valenti 5-string with Nordstrand stacked coil SCPB-type pickup for the main bass line; Clement 5-string with Norstrand P/J pickups for the lead line.



    _________________________________________________
    Recorded in Garageband on a laptop, 2014. Restored 1969 Fender Precision Bass with its original pickup: played for the bass line, and for the lead line through an Iron Ether Xerograph Deluxe.

    Cool stuff, Snaxster!

    Interesting...the Moog sounds quite a bit thicker and fuller than the Xero in your clips.

    Thank you much, FF!

    About comparison of the three tracks with MF-101 to the one with Xerograph Deluxe, the first thing I thought when I read your observation was:

    All other things being equal (which they were not; sound design decisions included), the MF-101 tracks were recorded in my former home studio. I had some pretty nice audio equipment there, if not the finest recording medium.

    But the Xerograph Deluxe track was post home studio. By then I had only some pedals, amps, and Garage Band on a laptop fed by an old A/D interface. That whole mix sounds harsh and dimensionless to me compared to the older first three tracks.

    I can see how that could make a difference.

    Here's mine... there's 3 basses on this mix, no guitars. Drums are courtesy EZDrummer 2. My Wonderlove Deluxe (bass 1) is on the entire track.

    Bass 1 - Wonderlove Deluxe > You're Doom (in loop)
    Bass 2 - You're Doom > Octave Up on TC Sub n Up
    Bass 3 - You're Doom > TC Flashback 2
