Preset Level
Controls the individual level for each preset. Because this setting is individual to each
preset, you may adjust the volume when using louder or softer amp models.
Fretless/Wah
The fretless simulator creates a fretless bass sound when using a fretted bass. Wah is an
effect controlled by an expression pedal making the bass sound as if it’s saying “Wah.”
Fretless/Wah Type - The Value buttons select the Fretless or Wah type that is simulated.

EQ
Equalization is used to shape the tonal response of your bass guitar signal. The EQ in the
BP50 is similar to the tone knobs on an amplifier. Values 1-4 cut the level of each band, 5 is
flat (no cut or boost), and values 6-9 boost the level of each band.
Bass (b1- b9 ) - The Value buttons adjust the amount of low end enhancement (Bass).
Mid (d1- d9)- The Value buttons adjust the amount of mid range enhancement.
Treble (t1- t9)- The Value buttons adjust the amount of high end enhancement (Treble).
Noise Gate
A Noise Gate is designed to eliminate noise while you are not playing. The AutoSwell
15
setting creates a volume pedal effect automatically with varying attack times. Different bass
guitars and pickups require different threshold settings. Choose a setting that fully mutes
the sound when you are not playing for the lowest setting.
Of. G1-G9 - Selects the Silencer™ Noise Gate. Settings 1-9 select the threshold. Of turns
the gate effect off.
s1-s9 - Selects the Auto Swell volume swell effect. Settings 1-9 select the attack time.
Chorus/Mod
The Chorus/Mod module is a multi-function module that lets you select the following
effects: Chorus, Flanger, Phaser,Vibrato, SynthTalk™, Octavider, Envelope, Detune, Pitch Shift,
and Whammy™ effects. When the Chorus/Mod module is selected, the Value buttons are
used to choose the type of effect. Only one of the effects in this row can be used at a time.
The following list describes each effect and their parameters in more detail.
Chorus (C1-C9)
A Chorus adds a short delay to your signal. The delayed signal is modulated in and out
of tune and then mixed back with the original signal to create a thicker sound, and
stereo image. Use the Value buttons to select one of the nine Chorus settings.
Flange (F1-f9)
A Flanger uses the same principle as a Chorus but uses a shorter delay time and adds
regeneration (or repeats) to the modulating delay. This results in an exaggerated up
and down sweeping motion to the effect. Use the Value buttons to select one of the
nine Flanger settings.
16
Phaser (P1-p9)
A phaser splits the incoming signal, and changes the phasing of the signal. The signal is
taken in and out of phase and mixed back in with the original signal. As the phasing
changes, different frequencies get canceled resulting in a warm sort of twisting sound.
Use the Value buttons to select one of the nine Phaser settings.
Vibrato (b1-b9)
A Vibrato effect modulates the pitch of the incoming signal at an even rate. Use the
Value buttons to select one of the nine Vibrato settings.
SynthTalk™ (S1-S9)
SynthTalk uses formant style filtering that produces vocal and vowel sounds. This gives
the illusion of a synthesized talking bass.
Octavider (O1-O9)
The Octavider effect creates a smooth tracking unison note one octave below the note
being played.
Envelope Filter (E1-e9)
The Envelope Filter is a dynamic Wah effect that alters your sound based upon how
hard you play. Use the Value buttons to select one of the nine Envelope Filter settings.
Detune (d1-d9)
A Detuner makes a copy of your incoming signal, takes the copied signal slightly out of
17
tune from the original, and mixes the two signals together. The result is a doubling type
of effect as if two bass guitars were playing the same part together. Use the Value
buttons to select one of the nine Detuner settings.
Pitch Shift (H1-H9)
The Pitch Shifting copies the incoming signal, and shifts the pitch of the copy to a
different note.The shifted note is mixed back with the original signal sounding as if two
bass guitars were playing different notes. Use the Value buttons to select one of the
nine Pitch Shift settings. The Pitch Shift settings are as follows:
H1= -12 semitones
H2= -7 semitones
H3= -5 semitones
H4= -4 semitones
H5= +3 semitones
H6= +4 semitones
H7= +5 semitones
H8= +7 semitones
H9= +12 semitones
Whammy™ (Y1-y9)
Whammy™ is an effect that uses an Expression Pedal to bend the pitch of the
incoming signal, or add a bendable harmony with the original signal. As the Pedal is
moved, the note bends either up or down. Use the Value buttons to select one of the
nine Whammy™ settings. W denotes Whammy bends and H denotes harmony bends.
The Whammy settings are as follows:
y1=W Octave Up
y2=W 2 Octaves Up
y3=W Octave Down
18
y4=W 2 Octaves Down
y5=H m3rd/Maj 3rd Up
y6=H 2nd/Maj 3rd Up
y7=H 3rd/4th Up
y8=H Octave Up
y9=H Octave Down
Delay
The BP50 has 3 different delay types, Mono (D), Analog (A), and Ping Pong (P), each with 2
seconds of delay time available. There are two different parameters used to program the
delay, Delay Variation and Time. The first parameter of the delay effect is Delay
Type/Variation, which selects the delay type to be used and varies the amount of feedback
(number of repeats) and level. The second delay parameter is Delay Time. This is indicated
by a value 1-99 (10ms-990ms), 1.0 and 2.0 (1 and 2 seconds respectively) in the display
when the Delay LED is lit. Delay settings are as follows:
d, a, p1=5% fback, level 15
d, a, p2=25% fback, level 15
d, a, p3=50% fback, level 15
d, a, p4=5% fback, level 30
d, a, p5=25% fback, level 30
d, a, p6=50% fback, level 30
d, a, p7=5% fback, level 50
d, a, p8=25% fback, level 50
d, a, p9=50% fback, level 50
Reverb
Using reverb in recorded program material gives the listener a sense that the material is
being performed in an actual room or hall. It is this similarity to actual acoustic spaces that
makes reverberation a useful tool in recorded music. Use the Value buttons to select one
of the nine predetermined settings. The higher numbers indicate there is more reverb level.
The reverb settings are as follows:
r1-f9 = Room
H1-H9 - Hall
P1-p9 - Plate
C1-C9=Church
A1-a9 = Arena
S1-s9 - Spring
19
Other Functions
Expression Pedal
The rear panel of the BP50 includes an input for an expression pedal. Any passive volume
pedal can be used as an expression pedal with the BP50. Connect from the output of a
passive volume pedal to the Expression Pedal Input on the BP50. The expression pedal
controls the BP50’s Volume,Wah, or Whammy™ parameters. If Wah and Whammy are
disabled, the expression pedal functions as a volume pedal. If the Wah or Whammy™
effects are enabled, the expression pedal control these effects.
Drum Machine
The BP50 includes 30 sampled drum patterns plus a metronome pattern that are useful for
developing a good sense of timing. Press the Drums button to enter Drums mode and start
playback of the drum loop (except when in Store or Bypass mode). In Drums mode, the
Edit buttons selects the drum Pattern, Tempo, and Level of the drum loop. Press the Drums
button again to stop playback of the drum loop.
Global Cabinet Modeling
The BP50 includes cabinet modeling that can be enabled on all presets when running it into
a mixer, recording device, or when using it with headphones. This feature emulates a
speaker cabinet connected to each of the amp models in all presets. Each amp model has a
specific cabinet model that optimizes its sound when using the BP50 in this manner. To
enable Cabinet Modeling:
1. Press and hold the DRUMS button when applying power to the BP50. Wait until the
display reads Cabinet On. Release the Drums button.
