Critter & Guitari Bolsa Bass
The Bolsa Bass is a small compact synthesizer that provides monophonic bass sounds. This little synth is great for all kinds of musical scenarios and is very portable making it a perfect addition to your live set. This synth gives you classic filter sweeps, simple and pure tones, lush FM, and even a stretchy tuned delay which makes great string-like drones. The entire keyboard may be tuned over a 1-octave range by turning the knob second from right. Volume is controlled by the right-most knob. The function of the remaining two left knobs depend on what mode is selected.
The Bolsa Bass has 16 keys for playing melodies which gives you 1 octave + 4 notes. The range can be extended using an external MIDI controller. The keys are not pressure sensitive, but they are aware of how long they are pressed. When tapped quickly, the note will release quickly giving more of a percussive sound. If the key is held for longer, the note releases slowly. This gives a sound more like a plucked string.
This knob controls the overall output of the synthesizer. This knob is hardwired to the output jack, so it does not participate in the sequencing fun. (The other 3 knobs can be recorded, see the sequencing section below.)
The Bolsa Bass can be tuned over a 1 octave range. When turned all the way to the left, the bottom key ‘C’ is a C2 (65.402 Hz). Turning the knob all the way to right raises the bottom key to C3 (130.804 Hz). The MIDI output is not affected by this knob.
