The Behringer Ultimate Bass Synthesizer is a full-featured bass synth in a compact pedal. A wide choice of waveform parameters and separate dry and affected level controls are augmented by a Pitch Hold feature that lets you play over a sustained synth note, as well as an expression pedal input that allows for manual control of the synth parameters as you play.

With its flexible output and fine control over synth parameters, the Ultimate Bass Synth gives you the fat, powerful sounds of analog synths in an affordable and compact stomp box.

Four Waveforms in Eleven Modes
Four waveforms (sawtooth, square, pulse, and wave) and their variants give you a range of basic synth tones to start from.
Extensive Control
Each waveform can be manipulated several ways. The frequencies filtered and how long the filtering lasts can be dialed in, giving you a tone that matches the mood and tempo of the song.
Separate Outputs
If you want, you can send the direct bass signal and the affected signal out separate outputs. This lets you mix the sounds together in your recording software, emphasizing one sound or the other at different times.
Pitch Hold
An exciting extra of the BSY600 is the Pitch Hold feature. By holding the pedal down, you instruct the unit to continuously generate the synth tone. You can then play over the held tone, for as long as you hold the pedal down.
Expression Pedal Input
By plugging any expression pedal into the unit, you can directly control the filter sweep of the synth as you play, for synth tones that exactly match the needs of the song.

      Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

      I Bought this after I read some reviews. Almost every review said the Behringer pedal was better than the Boss model that this was made after. I borrowed the Boss from a friend and compared the two of them for a couple of days and yes, it's better than the Boss and for a fraction of the price. Easy to use and good tracking if you use a booster before in the chain.

      Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

      Im a bass player in a local original band. This pedal is cool and all, but the biggest con about it is the fact that there is only like 2 settings where you can turn it on and off, the other settings the synth effect is always on and when you press down to turn it off I stays on, but if you press and hold then it sustains that note so you can play over top of that. Not really a cool feature to me.

      Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

      I just got this pedal and it is probably the coolest thing I've ever used. It has a pretty wide variety of sounds you can get, however, they're not very easy to get to. I had to mess around with the controls for a while to get the sounds right. I didn't find the sustain feature very useful. When you use it you get a very loud buzzing pitch and it's hard to hear what you play over it. It also does some wierd things to harmonics. Honestly, there's not a lot that I need to use it for, but when I do need it, it sounds great.

          Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

          If you are looking for some synth sounds at a low cost, this is your pedal. Because it is a lower cost pedal, it isn't perfect and can glitch, but it is more accurate than its Boss counterpart at a fraction of the cost. Would I gig with this pedal? Yes, with 2 or 3 spares on hand. At their price, you can combine a few for some very weird effects.

          Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

          I will use the BSY600 in a Church and home recording
          I use the effect on the Guitar and the Bass both!
          Sounds produced are great and very unusual.
          The cost is very reasonable compared to petals that are more money.
          Not a Sound you will use very often, but just right when you need a added Synth sound to color things a little.
          One of the biggest draw backs is there is no way to turn it off. This problem can be solved by going out the "Direct out" which has no effect added.

          Great pedal

          Comments about Behringer BSY600 Ultimate Bass Synthesizer:

          A lot of people call this pedal "good for the money", but personally, I just call it good. There have been some complaints about tracking, and I did have some sensitivity issues with my passive basses (actives had no issues), but after juicing the input level a bit with a compressor, no issues at all. Very versatile synth sounds, especially if you add an expression pedal.
