Filter Frenzy - Six Strings Strange

Six Strings Strange

When I finally got my hands on the Line 6 Filter Modeler 4, I planned to make a ton of weird and wacky music with it.  Well, better late than never.  While messing about with the pedal last week, I really got into the various synth models, particularly the "SYNTH-O-MATIC" and "SYNTHSTRING".  One thing led to another, and soon I was recording again.  BFDEco provided the drums, and I ran my Ibanez bass through a Line 6 POD Farm preset.  Everything else is my Strat through the FM-4.

The one drawback to this pedal is that some of the controls are just too fussy.  I got a really nice pseudo-Mellotron sound with the "SYNTHSTRING", and after adjusting one control, I could not get that sound back.  Instead, I got some kind of freaked out squeal.

I'm pretty sure I used the "OCTISYNTH" for the opening weirdness.  Glub, glub!
