PandaMidi Future Impact Bass Synthesizer

At Superbooth 17, PandaMidi was demoing its Future Impact Bass Guitar Synthesizer.

The Future Impact is a pitch-tracking bass synthesizer pedal. We got an overview and demonstration from creator András Szalay, above.

Szalay designed the classic AKAI Deep Impact pedal, a classic bass synth effect that offered 9 bass synth presets. With the Future Impact, Szalay has created a much more advanced pedal. It offers 99 patch memory locations and has a computer-based patch editor so that you can create custom patches and save them to the pedal.

In addition to its capabilities as a pitch-tracking synth, the Future Impact can also be used as a MIDI module.

Here’s a demo that explores the range of sounds of the Future Impact:

  1. I’d have to play it to see how fast the tracking actually is…also what happens when you play 2 notes?

  2. “Oscillators generated at 512 kHz oversampling
    Distortion calculated at 128 kHz oversampling”

    This (and even higher rates) are what we should be seeing in all DSP nowadays. Let our audio alias no more!
