RE: Ineko for sale? / BOSS VF-1
Speaking of sub-sonics, the Akira has a sub-bass patch that I use for
bass simulation....but is is savage and almost impossible to controll.
If I put it before any effect, it redlines it, if I put it after, it
redlines the board, just by applying the super low frequencies. It is a
wonderful sound, and the last I used it live, I was able to really move
the earth, even with my acoustic guitar. Basically, I'm going to
dedicate one of my compressors just to the output of this unit.
Incidentally, I was only half joking about those bomb simulation
speakers. I once read that bassist Billy Sheehan used bomb simulation
speakers from the military. They had drivers on them that were cable of
delivering huge shock waves and impacts, pointed down.

I worked on the Dead's stage crew for awhile.They were running around
70,000 watts.Phil lesh was playing bass through 48, 18in John Meyers
speakers.The system was capable of holographic effects and that made an
entire stadium resonate like a drum shell.Lesh worked with subsonics
bit too.Some deadheads do seem to strike people as having had their
turned to mush.
the continental plates cracking down the center to the core of the
earth. :) With a monster PA and sub system, I could crack skulls and
turn brains to mush with these frequencies. I'd like to loop a 30hz
frequency at 10,000 watts through 10 subs loaded with 18 inch bomb
simulation speakers. It would be like a 10 kilometer alien ship landing
on the stage. Massive.
