Super great Synth/Oct. pedal!! Pros: So much tweak-ability with the software. Amazing and Dead on tracking even with a Low B (occasionally dropped to A). True Bypass, so no signal degradation when bypassed. Some great sounds out of the box and tons of usable and cool sounds, very inspiring. Very solid construction, great LED for dark stages. Access to 12 preset sounds that you've made. Cons: (only reason it didn't get a 5) Have to scroll through sounds instead of jumping from 1-12. All the tweaking in the software can't be accessed on the gig, so get the sounds you like and make sure they work in a mix. Great pedal and if it was lost or stolen I'd immediately replace it with another. Well worth the money for the construction, AMAZING tracking, Very great sounds and software capabilities.

O.K. Tracking is great, way better than any other synth bass stompboxes like the Boss. Pretty cool synth tones, however ... the best, most classic synth tone is tone #3 and unfortunately, that tone removes most of the low end of your bass. It's a great tone, but it bumps your bass up an octave and you no longer feel that low end push that you normally feel from your bass. I bought this and used it a few times with my band, but after a few gigs, I stopped using it simply because, while it sounds good, it was ruining my sonic place in the band because I was no longer holding down the low end registers. Again, great tone, but you will be more in the register of a guitar if you use this pedal. You end up fighting with the guitar frequencies and you lose your place at the bottom of the frequency range.

Quit working after a few uses...

By JXR

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

I bought this pedal for my recording studio, as it has a very cool set of sounds. However, after 5 or 6 uses, the pedal failed. It started crackling and did not produce any usable volume any more. No foul play, nothing was dropped or spilled, just quit working.

Very disappointing.

Like other bass synthesizer pedals I've tried, this pedal is very touchy depending on the volume your you set instrument. Beware as it changes the sound you want to something very different!

Interesting sounds but has poor tracking

  • Poor Tracking

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

I was disappointed in this pedal. I am mainly interested in an octaver pedal that has octave up. The pedal can produce some interesting sounds in synth mode but I'm a traditional bass player and was not interested in the funky sounds the pedal can make. Unfortunately, if you play fast, the pedal can't keep up with your playing. Another annoying feature is that when you power it up, the pedal adds an octave down even if the level is turned all the way down. You need to turn the OCT-1 to mid level then turn it back down to eliminate the octave down. Octave down and especially two octaves down are of limited use on a bass since they only work well on the higher notes. I'm surprised this pedal doesn't work better since Markbass makes good amplifiers. Markbass makes an octaver pedal but it does not have an octave up. I've had better luck with the EHX POG octaver pedal.

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

This pedal has some really cool synth sounds installed and the software gives you the capibility to tweek your own sounds and sensitivities.
The octave divider portion of this pedal I found to be useless. There's only 3 banks of it, and their not very programable with the software. I think MB would better serve to remove the octave divider portion and lower the price.
Overall; if your looking a good, programable synth pedal..buy it. However, if your looking at this MAINLY as an octave divider..I would suggest looking elsewhere.

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

I have always been clean Bass player. I have never liked any of the envelope filters, auto wha ect. The current gig is going to start playing some 80s dance and decided to look around and see what was out there. I saw a video demo on you tube made by a german guy. He used a drum loop and played with it to show tracking ect. Great demo. I went to G.C. and it is all that was promised. Way better than any GK type rig I have ever used! Tracks pretty darn good. And I could still groove with it. Really impressed! Can't wait to gig with it..

fantastic!

By jon coontz

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

great value for the money, pretty damn close to a real analog feel, and way more stage freindly. You can customize sounds and load your favorite presets, a lot of bang for yer buck. The EXH bass synth is also cool, but it only does a coupla things well, this thing is a workhorse.
this little guy is terrific, way better sound quality & way more versatile than anything else in it's price range. I can get really deep, fat 70's bass synth sounds, as well as trebly-er lead stuff. I saw that some of the other reviewers weren't happy with all the presets-that's why it has a USB port and software to customize your sounds, guys!
errything Mark Bass is built like a tank, pedal is all metal.
some day I'll be able to afford a Moog Taurus, in the mean time, this price is a pitance for what this pedal does.

Awesome!

By Gregory Jungbluth

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

The software for this pedal really is what separates it from its competitors so I'll begin there. All the tones are tweak-able if you don't want to completely overhaul them, but you should because it's really fun and allows you to reflect on what you really want to hear before trying to dial it in, rather than just turning knobs. Anyways, there are 3 oscillators in this thing that you can dial any note in so you can play a note and hear a chord, awesome! I've tried a lot of bass synth pedals out and this one stands by itself, there are 12 preset tones with 12 variable parameters to mess with then there are the user tones with have 24 parameters to mess with. So much customizability! You can actually make this thing sound like a keyboard synth, tell me when ehx can do that.

Very cool sounds

By Shawn Whitley

from Undisclosed

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

Overall, this pedal has some cool sounds & had a great time bugging out with it on the gig. There are a couple of things I don't like but I think there are a couple of really cool sounds that I'll get to use so the pedal is a keeper for me.
Not hard to use, but there is a feature that would make the pedal easier to use...
Like a switch that allows you to scroll up & down through the settings. For example the way it is now if you're on synth 2 and you want to get to synth 1 you have to scroll forward through the settings to get back to synth 1. Fortunately there are not too many presets to scroll through.
The pedal seems to be pretty sturdy.
It's a bit pricey like so many other things today but...

THE bass synth pedal I was looking for

By Funktacular

from Toledo, OH

Comments about Markbass Super Synth Bass Pedal:

I own the Boss SYB-5 bass synth pedal, but it doesn't have tones quite as "usable" as I was looking for. Crazy, good, but not something you could use for funk, more just psychedelic. This pedal however, tracks even faster (no delay!) and both the octave and synth effects are totally awesome. I haven't started tweaking it yet (you have to hook it up to a computer via USB to change detailed settings), but with the 12 presets for each side (synth/octaver) and the simple controls, I was able to get that ultra-fat 70's analog synth bass sound I was looking for!Side note: this sounded great with guitar as well, and I cannot say that for the Boss pedal. Buy it if you've got the dough, save up for it if you don't.
