Overview

The AX3B for bass is an on-the-floor, footswitchable unit containing an array of 57 realistic effect types powered by Korg's proprietary REMS modeling technology. Packing a studio's worth of great amps, cabinets, modulation, and delay/reverb effects into its compact, floor-hugging form, the AX3B is easy to use and delivers sound quality that will satisfy beginners and pros alike. Plus, this little powerhouse will fit comfortably into the pocket of your gig bag and will run on batteries, so in addition to playing live on stage, it's an ideal choice for quick rehearsals, warm-ups, or even to help pass the time while traveling in the van. Now you can enjoy great bass sound wherever you are.

57 killer modeling effects

The AX3B contains 57 different realistic REMS modeling effects with the same high quality you'll find on the top-of-the-line ToneWorks AX3000B, delivering pro-level realistic sound from a surprisingly compact package. The AX3B is designed specifically for bass, with 16 famous bass amp sounds ranging from vintage to standard models. Every detail of each original amp has been faithfully re-created, giving you an enormous variety of bass tones that include fat, warm tube sounds as well as clean sounds. The AX3B's effects include the ever-indispensable compressor, plus an octaver to give your sound even more weight. Also included are numerous unique effects, such as a fretless effect that models the sound of a fretless bass, a slow-attack effect that simulates "violin" technique, and a great-sounding synth bass effect.

Full editing and flexibility that rivals dedicated units

Each amp and effect type has a wide array of editable parameters that rivals those found on dedicated units. The most suitable values are automatically selected when you choose an amp or effect, making it easy even for a beginner to get the best sounds right away. The most frequently used main parameters are accessible directly via the knobs immediately after you select an effect. Numerous sub-parameters are also provided so that you can adjust the details of the sound to your taste. With a simple and intuitive interface, getting the perfect sound is quick and easy.

Select from 80 programs (40 user/40 preset)

Use up to 6 REMS modeling effects simultaneously, and save your settings as one of 40 different user programs. 40 preset programs in a wide range of musical styles are also provided, giving you a total of 80 programs that you can use right away.

Flexible Auto Chromatic Tuner

Since the AX3B contains an Auto Chromatic Tuner, in addition to having great tone you'll always be in tune. There's a mute mode that lets you tune without producing sound from your connected bass amp, so it's easy to tune on-stage.

Optional expression pedals

You can connect an optional expression pedal and use your foot to control wah or volume for even more expressive possibilities. With a size that easily fits into the pocket of your gig bag, and the ability to operate on battery power, the AX3B is a great way to get the best bass sounds at home, in the studio, or on stage.

AX3B Baaa Signal Processor, Value and Quality

By InTheKnow582

from Woodruff S.C.

Comments about Toneworks AX3B Bass Modeling Signal Processor:

This is a great pedal for any bass player who wants great sound and great value. It is light and portable(can fit in a gig-bag or case) and can be ran on 4 AA batteries or a nine-volt adapter which is not included. All the effects sound awsome, the only problem is that it lacks a drum optoin for keepin tempo. Besides that it is easy to use and program your own effect profiles. This is a great peedal if you want a million dollor sound for around eighty bucks.

Awesome multi-effect pedal

By Alex

from Chicago, Il.

Comments about Toneworks AX3B Bass Modeling Signal Processor:

For a compact-sized multi-effect pedal, the korg "toneworks" ax3b bass modeling signal processer is a very impressive piece of musical equipment.I own this pedal for a couple of months and I am very impressed with the sound quality. this pedal has some very useful features such as amp models, distortion channels, modulations, and pre-effects which let me discover some new sounds. I wish I can use the amp models with the distortion channels, but that's okay, an amp modeler can take care of that. other than that, I really enjoy using this pedal. it's very useful for recording, live gigs, rehersals, and whenever you feel like playing music. I definitley recommend this pedal to bass players who wants to try something new.
