Open Discussion / Octave > Envelope on bass... *that* sound
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:17:29 AM »
Finally played a bunch of my OC2 > my Source Audio Bass envelope filter last night on bass. I had one of those moments where I realized where half the sounds I have had in my head came from... or at least how to reproduce them. It's a total Mike Gordon of Phish sound through and through but you can also hear a lot of the synthy Stevie Wonder type bass as well.

Anyone else love this combo of effects?

I have a madbean nautilus and a merlin submarine that I need to try out. AS hard as I've tried, though, I feel like it's really tricky to get a good consistent autowah sound on bass with the nautilus. The Source Audio is all digital but sounds really good with minimal fiddling. I'm going to give the nautilus another run after the holidays, though.

Awesome and thanks all. I have the enclosure drilled to add this etc.. Ready to go. One thing...I have a B50k...any difference in using that?

I'll be building one up this weekend - I asked Brian himself about the mids mod on the new boards and this was his response:

The Mids pot goes in place of R18 and usually a value of 20kB or 25kB works well. The way I would do it is
wire one leg of R18 on the PCB to lug 1 of the mids pot. Solder in a small resistor (around 4k7) between lugs 1 and 2. The use a return wire from lug 3 to the other spot for R18 on the PCB. This makes the Mids control a variable resistor and the small resistor you soldered in place is a "stopper". IOW, it prevents C10 from going all the way to ground when the mids control is fully counter-clockwise (which would mess up the tone control).

So yea - I'm going by his schema, which is a little different than Diamonds (though i'm sure they do the same thing).

I'm also adding a switch so I can turn it on or off - so essentially a DPDT ON-ON toggle switch, R18 goes to the center lugs of the switch - one side has a resistor between the lugs (whatever value from the parts list), the other side has the mids pot. This way I can turn it off altogether for recording, or have the mids on for jamming and live stuff.

Dunno if that helps you - but it's an option - put in the switch, and if you don't like the mids, just switch it off. :-)

Very old thread, but does anyone know if you use this method if you need to remove the R18 resistor? Some methods on here have you removing it and others don't. Sounds like you remove it, but just want to be sure.

Also, would I want to change C10 to 22n here? Again, that is the suggestion on other threads (http://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=2919.msg24741#msg24741), but not mentioned here.

thank you!

I need to order these values and can't find them! Feel like  a noob. Any help?

 Thanks for the report! I have my diamond board in the Omarís on the way. I have that envelope and donít love it for my playing.  Iím wondering what else I should add. Thinking of maybe a Civil War muff after the Omar.

I bought that big Omar out of the classifieds.

Juan,
Iím thinking of doing a zirconia/Omar 2 In 1 for Bass. Any advice now that this has been out in the wild for a year. Iíd the Omar good on bass?

Also, just bring it to a real tech and have them asses for you. Now that I work in a guitar shop, Iíve see the magic that can be done by pros who have seen it all.

It does take some time to find a good person...but most issues can be solved.

Itís been a while but I have spent a lot of time there. Honestly was trying to avoid a deep dive but maybe thatís not possible. 😃

I had a tuned muff a while ago and didnít like it....but also was not sure what I was looking for. Probably time to check it out again.
