Here are some brief descriptions of
the effects included in the Multiwave
Bass Distortion. The
settings are split into two major
settings use
the band splitting discussed in the
feature section and the
settings do not. Each main category
contains 3 sub-categories:
, and OCTAVE. For each
sub-category, turning the effect knob
clockwise tends to produce more dra-
matic effects.
I BAD
A 1-3
These three settings are best for
maximum clarity when playing mul-
tiple notes. These distortion curves
are similar to standard distortions.
fDBAcK 4-9
The foldback of the distortion curve
greatly increases the distortion com-
ponents for these settings. The higher
numbered effects have more foldback
creating even more distortion.
cAE 10-14
Settings 10 and 11 give the purest
octave effect. Settings 12 through 14
also have foldback and can get pretty
strange. Dial down the guitar volume
knob for a different range of sounds.
A 15-16
These two settings are fairly conven-
tional distortion sounds.
fDBAcK 17-19
With the entire bass signal processed
through a single foldback distortion
curve, there will be much more
intermodulation-type distortion
produced. These are great for getting
synth-like sounds and work well with
long sustained notes.
cAE 20, 21
20 is the purest single band octave
effect, and 21 includes some foldback.
EffEc (A)
The effect knob selects which effect
type will be used. There are 21 effect
positions around the knob as well
as a setting for
information on the individual settings
see the next section. See the Use with
Hot Hand section for information on
cEA EE (B)
This controls the level of the clean
signal. Having a separate control for
the clean level allows you to balance
the clean/distorted mix. The pure
distorted signal tends to lose some of
the precious low frequency content.
The clean signal can be used to add
it back in.
DIE (c)
The DRIVE control adjusts the gain
of the signal going into the distortion
section. The higher the
DRIVE, the
more distorted the signal.
DII EE (D)
Adjusts the distortion level. This is
useful for setting the level of the
effect compared to the bypass signal.
Note that because the effect com-
presses the signal, the dynamic
range of the distorted signal will be
less compared to the dry signal. This
should be accounted for when setting
The ON/OFF switch engages or
disengages the effect. When the
effect is engaged, the
(E) will be lit. The LED will be off in
bypass mode. The ON/OFF switch
is also used to start the calibration
routine when the
EFFECT knob is set

Low Power Change batteries or plug in a DC power supply.
Near noise source Move pedal away from power supplies and other
Other equipment Remove other effects from signal chain,
see if noise persists.
Bad cables Swap out audio cables.
Low volume:
Low power Change batteries or plug in a DC power supply.
Hot Hand doesn’t work:
Low power Change batteries or plug in a DC power supply.
Not calibrated properly Calibrate the Hot Hand (see Use with Hot Hand).
Not connected Check Hot Hand connections.
Knobs don’t work /light up:
Low power Change batteries or plug in a DC power supply.
Wrong power supply Use correct power supply (see Quick Start).
Corroded input cable plug Check input cable plug for corrosion on sleeve,
swap out cable if necessary.
TRS (stereo) cable used Only use mono cable for input cable.

1. E
To power the unit, insert 4 AA batteries (included) or connect a
Source Audio 9V power supply to the 9V DC jack (A).
2. GIA/ADI cEcI
Next, plug your bass guitar (or other instrument) into the jack
labeled GUITAR IN (B) via a standard ¼-inch cable. Connect your
amp (or other audio device) to the GUITAR OUT (C) jack, again with a
standard ¼-inch cable. Both input and output are mono signals.
Note: The unit will not power up until a ¼-inch plug is inserted into the
guitar input. This is to conserve power when the unit is running on batteries.
Don’t forget to unplug the cable from the input when the unit is not in use—
otherwise the batteries will continue to drain.

To use your Multiwave Bass Distortion with a Hot Hand sensor: Con-
nect the sensor to the SENSOR IN (D) jack and follow any instructions
supplied with the sensor.

• CLEAN LEVEL adjusts the clean (no distortion) signal level.
DRIVE the amount of distortion gain applied to the signal.
DISTORTION LEVEL adjusts the level of the distorted signal.
ON/OFF engages and disengages the effect. In calibrate
mode, the ON/OFF switch starts the calibration.
