The Boss SYB-3 was a bass synthesizer packed into a compact pedal, and today, the next-generation bass-synth pedal has arrived with the SYB-5. Utilizing the latest in DSP technology, the SYB-5 reproduces the classic sound characteristics of analog synthesizers.
All 11 internal synth sounds have been refined and enhanced to produce a fatter, more cutting sound. The sounds are built on variations of three oscillator waves (saw, square, pulse), plus filters that modulate according to the envelope and LFO changes you apply.
An external pedal input jack has been added to the SYB-5 for connecting an EV-5 Expression Pedal (sold separately), which allows you to control filter cutoff and LFO rate in real time with your foot. You can use the SYB-5's onboard pedal to hold a note while playing a bass phrase over it.
