    Enjoy!

    I have 2 Bassballs set at different levels.

    They blend well when both are on, as well.

    I should add that I also use Phase and manual Wah

    I vote for the EMMA. It is really important to mention that I also use a phaser with my filter. Homebrew's Psilocybe Phaser and the EMMA sound PERFECT together, IMO.

    Very nice samples. Is this pedal copy of one of the Jacque's pedals?

    lowpass gets pretty funky when you play with it.

    Exar looks like they must have used the same design software as Jacques.

    I love my Bass Synth Wah... Especially the octave-wah setting. Do many other envelope filters have that?

    I mainly use my manual wah though, I like to be in total control :)

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Love my EBS BassIQ. Nice and organic and funky as hell! Plus, the dub tones are sweet.

    I also use the Ibanez weeping demon, which I like for more bizarre sounds.

    Ive only ever tried the DOD fx25..

    Wow, great clips! i would love to know what bass is going through that clip 'Funki Hanki'
     
  14. Actually, they work together, I think Exar builds at least the boxes for Jacques.

    Ok! My first Moogerfooger impressions. It realy needs a lot of patience. Have to dig it, to get sounds of it.I've spent about an hour with it and I found few good funky sounds and few drum'n bass sounds. It sounds very cool together with distortion in my sansamp. But you have to get a looper before putting moog on your pedalboard.

    I love my Digitech BSW, i've tried a couple other envelope filters, not too many, but I finally get it with the EBS IQ. That think, smooth "dwoop" is soo much easier to put into a musical context than the dirtier filter sounds out there because you can dirty it up if you want to or keep it smooth and clean when you're not rocking out with the low end intact.

    but i still think the BSW is the best value, since i'm not willing to invest $120 into an effect i use sparingly

    I vote for the bassballs so funky:bassist:

    I've got the ibanez SB7 whitch have a good autowah but i don't like the other two synth modes, too fuzzy for my taste and i have a fuzzface for good fuzz.

    I'm trying to modify the SB7 for less fuzziness, if any of you know how to modify this pedal to be able to have sounds like the maxon AF9 in his three modes (LP,HP,BP), welcome.

    I also like to use my manual wah (boss PW10) to be in total control

    I love the samples of the exar pignose, so if i can't mofify the SB7, peraphs a pignose to replace it.

    What I found out about exar: it is polish company and thay have a lot of pedals listed on the web site, they have bass auto wah as well. And what is interesting, price on the web site is 188 zloty, smth like 60 dollars. Pignose is not on the web site for some reason.
