The Bass Synth Wah is an exciting combination of seven different
synth and wah effects including envelope filter, synth tones, filter
generators, and octave shift. The Bass Synth Wah can be run inline
with your current pedals, or parallel with your bass tone to create
unique combinations of both bass and synth sounds.
1. Sens Knob
Controls the trigger sensitivity of the envelope, synth, and filter
effects. Turn this knob clockwise to increase the sensitivity, and
counter-clockwise to decrease the sensitivity.
2. Control Knob
Controls different functions depending on which Bass Synth Wah
Type is selected. See Effects Matrix on following pages for detailed
Control knob descriptions.
3. AC Adapter Jack
Connect a DigiTech PS200R (9VDC) power supply to this jack. Use
the proper supply for your area’s Mains line voltage.

5.Type Knob
Selects one of the seven different envelope, synth, or filter types:
1-ENV FILTER - Classic envelope filter sound.
2-SUB ENV - Envelope filter effect with an octave down pitch shift
blended in.
3-SYNTH 1 - Monophonic synth tone generator with an opening
filter envelope.
4-SYNTH 2 - Monophonic synth tone generator with a closing filter
envelope.
5-FILTER 1 - Digitech’s famous Synth Talk™ effect.
6-FILTER 2 - Synth Talk™ effect with inverse filter envelope.
7-OCTASUB - An octave down pitch shift effect with a variable synth
effect mix using the RANGE knob.
6. Input Jack
Connect your instrument to this jack. Connecting a 1/4” cable to
this jack supplies battery power even though the Indicator LED may
not be lit. To prolong battery life, disconnect cables when not in use.
7. Pedal Release Pins
These two pins are spring-loaded hinges that hold the pedal in place.
Push these pins in to release the pedal from the pedal chassis
exposing the battery compartment. (See battery replacement
diagram.)
8. Pedal
Press the pedal to turn the effect on and off.
9. Out 1 Normal (Dry) Jack
Use this output when only one amplifier or mixer channel is used.
When both Out 1 Normal (Dry) and Out 2 (Effect) are
connected, only dry, unprocessed bass signal is present at Out 1
Normal (Dry) when the Bass Synth Wah is on or bypassed.
10. Indicator LED
This LED indicates when the effect is turned on. If the LED
becomes dim or does not light when the cables are connected, the
battery needs to be replaced.
11. Out 2 (Effect) Jack
Connect this output to a second amplifier or to a mixer channel for
effect signal only. When Out 2 is connected, only effect signal is
present when the Bass Synth Wah is turned on. Out 2 is muted
when the Bass Synth Wah is bypassed.
Connections
The Bass Synth Wah has a single input and a pair of outputs. When
possible, the Bass Synth Wah should be the first effect pedal in your
effects chain. This insures proper triggering of the different effects. Out
1 Normal (Dry) is used when the Bass Synth Wah is connected to a
single amplifier or mixer input. When only Out 1 Normal (Dry) is
used, effected signal is present when the Bass Synth Wah is on. When
the Bass Synth Wah is bypassed, a dry unprocessed signal is present.
Out 2 (Effect) has effect signal only when the Bass Synth Wah is on,
and is muted when bypassed. When Out 2 (Effect) is used, Out 1
Normal (Dry) becomes a dry path only when the Bass Synth Wah
effect is on or bypassed. This lets you mix dry bass signal and synth
effect signal separately into two different inputs. An ideal setup is to
have Out 1 Normal (Dry) connected to your bass amp and Out 2
(Effect) connected to a mixer channel. In this configuration, Out 1
Normal (Dry) sends a dry, unprocessed bass signal to your amplifier
and Out 2 (Effect) sends only the effect signal to the mixer. This setup
lets you control your amp and synth effect signals separately for
dramatic bass/synth applications.
CIT™ Cabinet Modeling
The Bass Synth Wah also has built-in CIT™ cabinet modeling that
can be enabled. CIT cabinet modeling simulates a 4x10 bass speaker
cabinet, giving you a through-an-amp sound when running direct to a
mixer or recording device.
To Enable CIT™ Cabinet Modeling
1. Press and hold the Pedal down.
2. Apply power by either connecting a 1/4” instrument cable to the
Bass Synth Wah Input or connect the PS200R power supply to
the AC Adapter Jack.
CIT cabinet modeling has to be turned on each time you apply
power to the Bass Synth Wah.

Battery Replacement
1. Using the tip of a 1/4” cable, push one of the release pins in on
either side of the pedal, and remove the pedal from the pedal
chassis.
2. Remove the battery from the battery compartment and
disconnect the battery cable.
3. Connect a new battery to the battery cable and put it back in the
battery compartment. Make sure the battery cable does not
interfere with the spring or pedal switch arm.
4. Place one hole of the pedal over its corresponding pin.
5. Push the opposite pin in and lower the other side of the pedal
into place over the depressed pin. Release the pin. When the
pedal is properly fastened, both release pins are flush with the
outer side of the pedal.
