The new EBS BassIQ ‘Blue Label’ feature enhanced versatility and responsiveness. This is a fun analog tool to create inspiring and musical envelope effects.
The BassIQ ‘Blue Label’ produces sounds ranging from classic auto-wah effects to spaced out ”Funkadelic” and synth-bass sounds. It is for everyone looking for a fun, fat sounding and responsive envelope filter that reacts to how you play in a musical way.
Q, Threshold & Attack-controls
The Threshold and Attack control knobs set the sensitivity of how the pedal responds to your playing. The sensitivity is the key to create a great variety of sounds from synth-bass, to wah-effects or sub-bass. A separate control changes the Q value to create even more variation in the sound character – from mellow to sharper effects.
Up, Up-R & Down-modes
In the UP mode, the pedal responds with a wah effect. Turn the Q knob all the way up to get distinct ‘quacky’ wah sounds (like the HiQ mode of the old BassIQ). Turn the Q knob back for a more mellow effect. To get a sub-bass sound, use the UP mode and turn Threshold all the way down and Attack all the way up. The UP-R mode works in the same way as UP but interacts with an internal control that changes the range of the envelope effect to your desire. The DOWN mode creates a reversed envelope effect that turns your bass into a synth bass.
The three pass filter options, Full Range, Band Pass, and Low Pass, creates three variations of the character of your sound at any time.
Trim pots are found inside to set the gain output level of the pedal, to set the level of high frequencies from the bypassed tone to mix in with the effect and to decide the Range of the envelope effect when the UP-R mode is selected.
