hi guys GREAT BUNCH OF SUGGESTIONS - keep them coming
i like EHX and you can review some of their pedals on their awesome YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/effectology
without trying to STEAL this thread id like to ask a question which is very relevant to this thread - maybe even FUNDAMENTAL whats the best way to connect synth to guitar pedal ? especially in regard to impedances and output level (Ohm / dB)
i mean its obvious you can take synth MONO OUT (Unblanced TS) and plug it into pedal INPUT and off you go... whats the problem you may ask... well iam not so sure this is so obvious solution - synth is not a guitar - generally when connecting synth proffesionally you have to keep an eye on IMPEDANCE and LEVEL OUTPUT unless you want a shitty sound... modern synths typically output -10 dB LINE OUTPUT while some PROFFESIONAL WORKSTATIONS output +4dB LINE OUTPUT... similarily OUTPUT IMPEDANCE varies from 85 Ohm (Korg Kronos) to 1000 Ohm (EMU Proteus MPS)... needles to say that LEVEL and IMPEDANCE mismatch greatly affects sound...
what is the typical / average electric guitar OUTPUT LEVEL and IMPEDANCE or in other words what do these guitar-pedals "expect"
to get on their INPUT... if you want to make most out of the pedal and make it sound like the pedal manufacturer planed - you should spend some time customising the signal coming from your synth to resemble the guitar signal that the pedal "expect"
for optimum sound...
