Electro Harmonix Enigma Q Balls Bass Guitar Effects Pedal
The main problem I've found with envelope filters over the years is that whilst they often get clsoe to the sound that I want to achieve, it's not quite there... with a little more accurate control, I could make it! Well, now I can, thanks to the excellent Enigma Q Balls from Electro Harmonix, a powerful and precise envelope filter that's fine-tuned specifically for bass frequency responses!
Riddle me this...
The highly accurate and precise controls on the Enigma Q Balls allow you to sculpt your envelope to your heart's desire, revealing a truly expressive tone with a defined and unique signature. Add to that it's own analog distortion circuit and the option to plug in an expression pedal (to control the filter sweep with your foot in real time), and you have a pedal that's not only affordable, easy to programme, and effective, but also highly expressive and versatile! What more could you ask for?
An Array of Controls
The control panel on the Enigma Q Balls, whilst having no fewer than 8 different control knobs, is surprisingly straightforward to get to grips with, and sculpting your own sound soon becomes second nature. The controls are as follows:
Blend - is whee the Dryness / Wetness of the mix is determined
Mode - lets you choose between 3 different filter sweets
Attack - controls the speed of the sweet
Decay - controls how sensitive the reset circuit is
Start - sets the frequency that the sweep begins at
Stop - sets the frequency that the sweep ends at
Q - controls the resonance of the Q
Sensitivity - controls the inpur sensitivity of the filter circuit
Whilst it may sound like a lot to take in, it's surprisingly not, and the controls soon become intuitive for even novice envelope filter users.
