emulate bassballs pedal?

Postby rockreid » Fri Jun 22, 2012 10:12 am

I am having trouble trying to emulate the famous Bassballs pedal on my recorded bass guitar in Reaper 4. I'm not certain if it uses a high pass or low pass filter, what type they are, and what envelope settings work. I can't seem to get the two Etch filters to work together. Thanks to anyone that can help.

Got an audio example of what you're trying to achieve?

Bassballs is about two parallel band-pass filters with fairly hight resonance that are driven in sync to the envelope. The key to the vocal-type sound is to have the frequencies a set distance apart but fairly close to each other. I think the envelope would only be a decay type, no attack (this is from memory). Modulation amount would depend on the signal and be adjusted to taste

Sounds about right from what I've read. Also, play with the distortion in both pre and post filter mode, which will give you very different flavours.
