Custom Bass Pedals Synth

via this auction

"Note: This is not a midi instrument,.. it is a sample-based Bass Pedals Synthesizer. If needed, your own sounds can be added to the instrument (send contact inquiry [on eBay] for details).

The computer used for this application is an IBM Thinkpad X41. It's attractive, and great for this application. As pictured you can swivel the screen around and lay it down as a flat screen (locks into place). The computer is held to the Pedal unit by 4 screws (very secure). A new internal memory battery has been installed.

The Pedal Shafts used in the construction of this unit are the very same Norlin-made shafts that were used in the original Moog Taurus series...

This is a very versatile Bass Pedals System that will open up all kinds of possibilities for the right musician. At power up, a custom automation program runs.. opening the appropriate software and putting everything into place for you so that you are ready to play in moments...

A list of the included instrument samples are as follows:

1. Taurus Bass
2. Custom Taurus Bass
3. Hammond B-3 w Leslie (single low note)
4. Rickenbacker Bass
5. Yamaha FB-01 Bass
6. ARP 2500 Bass
7. Warm Sawtooth Bass
8. Piano/String Bass
9. Mellotron Low String
10. OBX (single low note)
11. Stand Up Bass
12. Filter Sweep Bass ( in Rush's "Tom Sawyer")
13. FM Tone (single low note)
14. Tympani / Orch
15. Dyn Bow String
16. Woodwind (single low note)

Another feature of this instrument is that samples of major and minor chords are also included. Major chords across the standard 12 note range, and if you push the momentary footswitch provided (pictured to the left of the Pedals in the pix) the chords then turn to Minor. Chord Samples include:

1. Organ
2. Strings/Horns Mix
3. Korg Layer Strings

Software features include:

1. Full ADSR control
2. Distortion
3. LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator, for vibrato effects etc)
4. Reverb
5. Delay
6. Glide (also known as Portamento,.. a rare feature for a Sampler to have)."
