Triggered Fitler/Synth effects
on 2011-01-11 13:18:47
I find it very hard to get the sounds I want with this at times.
For example for triggered synth stuff I nearly always have to use the Growler, so all my filtered lead synths sound the same.
I've tried using the slow filter with other synth models. It works, unlike the *Tron effects, but unfortunately it picks up far too slow. I can get the kind of sounds I want, but only if I play very slowly and deliberately, which is kind of useless.
I play electronic music and I like to use guitar to recreate these kinds of effects. However the trigger for some of these filter effects is just a bit rubbish. A lot of synth type pedals tend to have some kind of sensitivity knob as well as attack speed. Some of the filter/synth models actually lack an attack speed for the effect(such as the Growler).
I know there's an inherent limit to the number of parameters, but the M9 is really limited as guitar Synth pedal because of things like this. If there was maybe a global sensitivity and default speed for triggered effects, that would help a bit.
I really think the M9 needs some extra triggered synth effects, even ones lifted from the older POD units would be better than nothing.

I can totally understand where you're coming from. Basically all those "synth" effects were the same ones taken from our FM4 (the purple 4-button stompbox modeler). However, I don't think the M13 or M9 was released as a "guitar synth pedal". They're pretty much a collection of our DL4, MM4, DM4, FM4 and Verbzilla effects into one unified effect device, in truth.
