you think itll sound decent????

also, does anyone have an SYB-5?
if so what settings can get you some good sounds?

Well by voice box do you mean talkbox? I think that one of those two would be good, but at the same time, I'm not sure. It's worth trying, though, it might be totally epic or totally annoying.

Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass

Even if it's horrible, send me a clip. I love putting strange effects on my bass. I recommend the Korg Kaoss pad. That's some fun shiit right there.

I don't own an SYB-5 but I have played on one. It's not too hard to get a sound that's good, and there are a ton of different sounds available. If I remember correctly, it has something like 9-11 different synth modes, and each one has 4 different tweakable parameters, so it can produce pretty much any synth mode you could think of.

But I found that it functions best by itself, so combining it with a talkbox might be a bit risky. I tried it with distortion and it became too gainy, but you're not really supposed to combine additional drive with synth anyhow. To get an idea of how well a talk box would work with the synth, try using a wah pedal with it instead just to test. Wah pedals seem to alter tone in a similar way to talkboxes so any sharp nuances will likely be reproduced with the wah also.

I think this would sound bad, on a completly overkill level.
If anything, it'll sound like a really, really bad version of Barry White covering Stevie Wonder's talkbox recording.

I use to own the syb5 until I sold it because it has really bad tracking.. It makes some darn cool sounds only let down is that tracking problem..

Im thinking of making a talk box for my bass just to mess around with ;D let us know how yours goes
