what would be the best way to get those fender rhodes synth noises on my bass without worring about slow tracking. maybe i should just get a synth keyboard, what would be the cheapess, boards of canda anyone?
Fender Rhodes is an electric piano, not a bass synth.
Ewe are confused somewhere, sir.
Perhaps ewe want a synth with a pitch-to-voltage convertor,
like the Korg MS20 wot Jupiter Ace has.
can u only get a fender rhodes second hand?
Well, ewe steal one instead, I suppose... :-)
(Fender stopped manufacturing them long ago y'all...)
there's one in Limerick for £250 but hands off, i want it!
i don't quite know what yr on about connor but get thee an Electro Harmonix Microsynth this instant!
is the boss synth pedal anygood
for bottom end bass sounds from my thunderbird?
I used a boss SYB-3 bass synth with panda kopanda.. the tracking is decent (if you use your fingers)
they cost 'bout £130 new.
if you want perfect tracking though you will have to fork out for a midi pickup/converter job (about £450) and even then you will still need a synth to make any sound..
I will sell you my 8 month old SYB-3 boxed for £100 though (i dont play bass anymore)
i will buy it of u in the new year(student grant), if i could test it first. can u get lots of different sounds
Or come to see the Feline Dream at Xmas and ewe will see my exciting bass pedals wot I play with my feet as well as my geetar of bassness they are mazzin leek with the filtersweeps of metal werker death 'n' all...
I borrowed a syb-3 from Marcus over a weekend a while back.
I couldn't get it to track reliably at all, unfortunately, and handed it back.
I have since spent the money on beer.
r u the old panda ko panda bass player then. did u use it when we play with u
what kind of pedals do u use and when are u playin feline1
They are made by the Italian organ company Viscount, who were also famous in the 80s for their pleasing minty biscuits. The have Curtis ElectroMusic chips inside "and everything"
yeah sure.. i wont be home untill next month anyway..
the pedal gives basic square and saw wave sounds with a 24dB filter it also has presets that shift the synth down an octave, add noise before the filter, or bypass the synth section to turn it into an envelope filter.
it sounds squidgy and yum..!
though possibly not as yum ass moog taurus pedals ...
well NOTHING sounds as yum as moague taurus pedals...
...but they cost about £800 these days (IF ewe can find any in the first place)
But they are also really skinny, rather hard to play if ewe have well-endowed feet like me :-)
i herd (about the skinny pedals).. the lady frum ad n to x had a custom stand so she could play them them with her hands .. though that looked rather silly
YEs y'all, ADD N TO X are rather silly...
I mean why doesn't she just play a better sounding keyboard with her fingers?!?
Like, "duh" or sthg.
My Viscount pedals are thankfully quite chunky.
Which is nice...
(they also tend to break down in the middle of songs.
Which is not :-O
Hey Feline, Viscount biscuits are still very popular.
Although these days people prefer the bar form of viscount.
andy. i will buy it off you within the next week. sounds like a good deal to me. pob-lem? email?
the boss pedal is quite fun. I have one with no intentions of getting rid of it for a while. The auto filter section is werth half the price on it's own. The synth tracking is monophonic so if you're not a very precise player you will not get the melodic output you want. But the sounds are fine for the cash.
On another note. I totally disagree with Feline 1 as to his comments regarding ADD (N) to X. Don't start Davis.
I've seen your band on several occasions and have heard most of your back catalogue, and although you may squirm about it in that self reverential manner you always adopt. They sound bigger and more analogue than your band.
I see it as a challenge. I go to the gig in December, you try to coax out of your equipment a bass sound bigger than theirs. Their bass peadls mixing with a wild ARP synthi solo are gonna be a little hard to beat.
I know it's not the same as a dual with you both side by side, but I'll be the judge...so there.
We will beat them in the bass bins, we will beat them in the Beachcombers,
we will beat them all rahnd the haus y'all! :-O

Im definately interest in the BOss pedal
and the Roland 505 please contact me SmackWeasel@hotmail.com
WARNING: the Roland TR505 drum maschine is *NOT* a classic analogue drum machine, it is just a wick wee cheapo mid-80s *DIGITAL* MIDI beatbox
It should NOT be confused with desirables such as the TR808 and TR909
However having said that, fifty quid is a perfectly reasonable price for one.
