The Electro-Harmonix Bass Mono Synth converts your electric bass guitar into a fat-sounding monosynth without instrument modifications, special pickups, or MIDI. There are 11 synth types to choose from, and there’s plenty of room for extra tweakability. And after you dial in a sound you like, you can save it as one of 11 user presets. Beyond that, you get an expression pedal input for real-time parameter manipulation. There’s an endless array of great bass synth sounds lurking within the Bass Mono Synth’s rugged chassis — what will you create?
There are so many cool sounds that you can dial in with EHX’s Bass Mono Synth pedal. You get 11 great-sounding synthesizers to start from. The Sensitivity control adjusts how your playing dynamics trigger the synthesizer, allowing you to fine-tune the pedal’s response to your rig and playing style. From there, you can adjust a key parameter for each of the 11 synth types with the Control knob. And — if you’re still hungering for more — you can use the Bass Mono Synth’s Expression input to gain real-time control over an entirely different parameter. Beyond that, you can create, save, and recall 11 user presets, one for each of the 11 synth sounds. At Music Experience, we appreciate the Bass Mono Synth’s inspiring combination of intuitive operation and profound tweakability.
The EHX Bass Mono Synth transforms your bass into eleven great sounding synthesizers... from vintage synth emulations to thick, stacked voices to deep pulsing sounds and more. Its intuitive layout makes it easy to use and easy to dial in good sounds quickly. DRY controls the volume of your dry bass signal at the Synth Output. SYNTH controls the volume of the Synthesizer sound at the Synth Output. Used together they let you create just the right mix. The SENS control, short for sensitivity, adjusts how your playing dynamics trigger the synthesizer and allows you to fine tune the way the pedal responds to your bass rig and playing style. With the CTRL knob you can adjust a key parameter for each of the eleven synth types. It varies depending on the preset and provides more tweakability for customizing your sound. There’s also an EXP input which lets you control an entirely different parameter in real-time with an expression pedal! Using the built-in Preset footswitch, a user customizable preset for each of the eleven synth sounds can be created, saved and recalled. The factory presets are also easy to restore should you wish to. From lush, warm sounds to sharp, percussive stabs, the Bass Mono Synth puts a collection of cool bass synths at your fingertips.
