  • Do they make anything like the Boss SYB5 for guitar?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=QMbP3Yr2nmk#!

    (vid wont embedd)

    It does some really cool stuff, I like how you can use an expression pedal to control the settings and such.

    So, is there anything like this for guitar? Or could I get away with using a bass synth for guitar?



    Any help will be greatly appreciated,

    Nick.

    you could probably use the bass one just fine. the ehx bass microsynth works as well as the guitar microsynth on guitar. same for many if not most pedals. my boss ce-2b sounds nearly identical to my ce-2 on guitar as well.



    he does get some good wubbing going by the end of this vid.

      here's a vid of someone using it for guitar. there is an old thread on this forum too asking about it, some poeple said it doenst track so well on guitar, and indeed it does sound a bit glitchy on guitar

      you can mod a ehx microsynth to have expression controllable filter sweep should sound pretty close. the microsynth is a helluva pedal, just watch some of the EHX vids and effectology vids using it and all the different sounds and synth sounds you can get from it

        Thanks, Ill look into it. The micro synth seems a bit pricey though, Im a budget gear guy.



        The guitar would be drop-tuned anyway, so it would stil be in the semi-bass range anyway. Im thinking of putting a compressor and wah in front of it, so Im not sure if that will help it or hurt it as far as tracking goes.

          compressor might help. wah probably not so much. i bought my microsynth used, a older big box one, for just $110. seems reasonable to me.

              Subdecay Octasynth?

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWSLzjtrr34



              Also heard good things about the green digitech synth wah http://www.digitech.com/en-US/products/synth-wah

              .

                Octasynth is your answer.



                Although the main reason why people probably don't think the SYB tracks well on guitar is because guitarists aren't used to playing single lines quite as cleanly as bass players are. Any slop in your playing, trying to shred, or whatever, will inevitably lead to glitchy tracking problems in the SYB.



                I don't think you'll get a MicroSynth to glitch out for tracking problems if your playing is clean, it tracked the bassoon quite well, and the bassoon is a harder instrument for pedals (not tuned to it) to track than guitar if it's doing any pitch>vco kind of thing.

                        I like the sound of it, but can you control it with an expression pedal?

                            behringer bass synth fo the win.

                            'F' paying $150 or more for an occasional synth sound




                            This one might be a winner! How does it track on guitar?



                            Also, what is a decent expression pedal that wont break the bank?
