Boss SYB-5 Bass Synthesizer
This pedal adds to the sound of a bass synth sound. Several waveforms are available, with some variations: sawtooth, square wave, more full of other amazing sounds.

The pedal has a low pass filter. By default, the filter follows the envelope of the bass sound, but it can also be modulated by an expression pedal (producing a sound like a wah-wah). 2 modes, the filter follows a LFO (for wobble sounds like Dubstep, Drum & bass).

There is a low input, expression pedal input. There is an output jack, plus another outlet for separating its clear bass and synth sound of the pedal if a jack is plugged into the outlet

UTILIZATION

must absolutely understand what button does what! from here ... we do is we want the manual is explicit about it
no internal memory! but there is a blank sample at the end of the manual to record your personal settings.

SOUND QUALITY

I use the boss for funk in general for very groovy bass lines. the synth sounds are very different, they reproduce wonderfully sounds from Earth Wind and fire a daft punk generation are two very different synth sounds!
there is much talk of latency!, I think it is very correct! ... For his work properly (little trick) it will initially use a cabbage cabbage or scratch tape end of the shaft to remove the parasitic harmonics of the instrument (very important !!)
have a clear and clean game (no For troubleshooting for experienced bass player)
-and especially its direct use of the low (dry 34) with the Treaty limited the maximum effect of dropping sounds.
the knob decay rate is very important to optimize a fast game and a more sedate game! this is by experience and various test I just say that this is the most important adjustment to make the most of the gameplay and reactivity pedal!

OVERALL OPINION

I use the boss for over 2 years and still the same fun! I admit putting it in the closet to try something else ... (supersynth markbass) and other multi effect pedal with integrated synth (Korg) but without success! sustain of the instrument is preserved.
for me the bass synth to be used as an accompanying instrument to support the beat and the groove and not ghostly sounds and spacy to be rarely exploitable group (aside for the hard-compound and electro)
I love the synth 5 boss because he does everything, whether it is a clean and punchy dirty well (popping sound) or the cosmic sound!
I use:
Low: warwick corvette 5 active, fender jazz bass 5 active Luxury
amp: cmd 2x10 markbass
I pair my boss with a markbass octave which for me is the winning combination for the sound !! ... !!!!

Boss SYB-5 Bass Synthesizer
This pedal adds to the sound of a bass synth sound. Several waveforms are available, with some variations: sawtooth, square wave, more full of other amazing sounds.

The pedal has a low pass filter. By default, the filter follows the envelope of the low, but it can also be modulated by an expression pedal (producing a sound like a wah-wah). 2 modes, the filter follows a LFO (for wobble sounds like Dubstep, Drum & bass).

There is a low entry, expression pedal input. There is an output jack, plus another outlet for separating its clear bass and synth sound of the pedal if a jack is plugged into the outlet.

UTILIZATION

You must read the manual a bit, but the pedal is pretty simple to use.
There is 1 knob selecting the synth sound, a knob modulating the speed of movement of filter (speed of decay of the envelope or LFO, depending on the mode).
Two knobs adjust each filter frequency and resonance.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of this pedal is very good, but you should know some tips to maximize:
As such, the sound of the SYB-5 may seem cheap. But just add some effects pedal after distortion, chorus, reverb, for a mega-synth sound.

Otherwise, an expression pedal is needed to give some movement to the sound, and LFOs to modulate.

To make electronic music live is great.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years and I am satisfied!
Good value for money, and it is quite irreplaceable.

Captain Danny's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good synthesizer"

Boss SYB-5 Bass Synthesizer
Analog synthesizer bass.

Effects non-editable or rackmount.

Input two: one for the instrument, for a Roland EV5 expression pedal, I had but I have not found this option very convincing, I prefer to play directly on my Wha Wha to modulate a bit.

Two Output and knowing that when we use the two was not a stereo effect but the bass that comes in dry and effect coming out separately, thus little option I find useful.

Standard 9V power supply socket.

Not true bypass.

UTILIZATION

The pedal offers all the controls relevant to this type of effect: the low volume of dry and separate effect, frequency control, Resilience, decay (or miss depending on the mode), and the effects and their variations (single, the octave, self) that I will detail them all.

The hold function which allows the freezer effect, leaving his foot on the pedal to create a slick sound and play in its clean above (or below saw the drone as it gets you out sometimes) is nice but too little practical for extensive use, even a small additional option to the interest a little questionable but nice to have!

The manual is clear and sufficient.

He will spend some time on the beast to find the sound you want and adapt it to the style of play: indeed an effect at the same setting behaves differently depending on what is sent, the pedal in certain settings it difficult to track down what you play and monitor effectively. It will therefore be familiar with the possibilities of the pedal before operating fully.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are effective as long as it took time to look depending on what you will, that we love and the mouth of the riff with which to associate a particular sound. This pedal is a killer for the styles that I use: funk (or you can find plenty of his type auto wah light synthetic), disco, electro (the effects in the octave below make it very well). The pedal retains the depth and double bass knob to blend ensures you never see the bass disappear as a result, your bass is kept intact, the pedal will produce its effect in acute or even more serious than what you which can occupy all the sound spectrum once engaged.

I use it only with my bass, my guitar trials have not been very conclusive.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a while now, it's the only pedal synthesizer I've ever had, I'd try the digitech bass synth wah, I prefer the SYB-5 but they are different then it is hard compare them objectively.

I like the vast sonic possibilities of the pedal, all options less useless or anecdotal Boss stuck above story to eyeful for not much (as usual Well actually ...).

The value for money goes, but at that price, even for units at Boss could have the true bypass for once, right? Anyway, surely the choice I would do, so many possibilities in a nice little box without a digital pedal it's still cool. But if I had to take this opportunity would be because the price / quality ratio would become really interesting and the Boss, duh, it's solid and reliable so it ages well.

Kulten's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Boss SYB-5 Bass Synthesizer
Synth bass pedals in a BOSS ... is the successor to the SYB-3. It contains the same knobs: frquence, rsonnance, decay, fashion, spars volumes, but also "rate" for the LFO.

5 DSP sound: saw, square, pwm, pulse 1 and 2, with variations, "saw - an octave" and "square doubled an octave."

saw and square are entitled to the LFO.

two wave shape (normal / reverse) to process external sounds.

between one of expresion pedals for that CONTRL in real time the "rate" the Ouo frquence as directed.

DIFFERENCES WITH THE SYB-3:
- No noise gnrateur
- No autowah
- Saw the wave is less rich

+ The sound is more powerful square
The SYB-3 + has no LFO
+ Between the "EXP"

Note: The PWM is low on the square SYB-3 and pulse for the SYB-5.

UTILIZATION

Trs simple: you choose the waveform, you turn the knobs ... classic analog synth as a

SOUND QUALITY

The tracking is much better than the SYB-3 bass players will be happy.

if the SYB-3 sounds "oldschool analog", the SYB-5 is plutt "industrial metal" ... the LFO is hyper prcis, trs effective ... the SYB-5 has two sounds "pulse" DIFFERENT, the "pulse 1" sounds like an organ saturated and "Pulse 2" looks like a robot voice.

we regret the wave saw the syb-3, a marvel, that of syb-5 is less rich, less deep.

a good idea: how "5" is a square wave PLUS the same one octave below simultanment cheeks, big sound guaranteed!

Listen to it: there are also http://go.to/kulten sounds SYB-3!

OVERALL OPINION

Synth to sound aggressive, it will surprise the habitus of the SYB-3 and those who expected to find typical analog sounds ... but the SYB-5 has a personality of its powerful and mtalique it is try!
