Introducing the AX5B modeling signal processors a compact modeling effects processors with professional grade effects quality, a built-in expression pedal, and much more!
All the essentials a bassist could need and more
The AX5B is specifically designed for bass and provides 16 bass amp models that cover a range from vintage to standard amps. The AX5B programs faithfully reproduce every sonic detail of the original amp, giving you a broad variety of tonal characters from fat and warm tube sounds to clean bass tones. Numerous effect types are also built in, ranging from the compressor that’s indispensable for bassists to an octaver that adds an ultra-low bottom. Plus we’ve included numerous unique effects such as a fretless effect that models the distinctive sound of a fretless bass, a slow attack effect that simulates a violin-style playing technique, and a synth bass effect with superb presence.
Expression pedal provides limitless expressive power
The AX5B has an expression pedal that lets you control an effect in real time using your foot. You can use this to control volume, wah, or nearly any effect parameter such as the gain of an amp model or the speed of a tremolo or flanger, giving you great expressive potential for live performances. A three-color LED indicates the effect (volume, wah, etc.) that is assigned to the expression pedal. There’s also a Quick Assign function so you can assign an effect parameter at one touch and adjust the variable range yourself for maximum flexibility.
