Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

I'm currently trying to perfection the tracking of my analogue systems rs-35 pitch to cv converter by eliminating all the subharmonics and overtones from the tone of my bass so that the rs-35 only detects the fundamental if my bass without being confused by the harmonics and overtones in the monophonic signal.
To achieve this, i would like to filter out all the frequencies from my tone which are not part of the bass' fundamental frequency range.
Does anybody here know the frequency range of the bass guitar from the low e to the highest note of the g string, just the fundamental notes, not the overtones?
thanks in advantage
Don

bass guitar's low E fundamental frequency is E1 which is 41.2 Hz, one octave lower than a regular guitar. (i once had a long argument with a professional bass guitarist, who assured me it was 2 octaves lower, he was wrong, and someone else once told me a double bass was 2 octoves lower, they were wrong too).

hope that helped!

Holy shit. I never would have believed that if I hadn't just gone and tested it out with my ears. It's funny the assumptions you can make yourself believe.

again no worries!

yeah, i used to think it was 2 octaves lower when i started playing bass (around 24 years ago), but then discovered it wasn't. smile

also remember, 99% of the people who hear a bass's low E string on a recording, aren't hearing any of the fundamental AT ALL, but just the harmonics (not many people's speakers are flat down that low).

Just posting this link to the other thread in the Eurorack forum in case someone searches for applications like this and ends up here. Check here for alternative ideas.
