Finhol™ Auto Bass

[AB-01]

finhol-auto-bass-1The Finhol™ Auto Bass is an intelligent device that analyzes the chord signal of a acoustic-guitar with a built-in pickup System and preamp, or a electric guitar with a strong output signal and creates the appropriate bass tone automatically. The bass tones are high quality bass samples.

The device is designed for “strumming” of Open & Barre-Chords, only the chords relevant proper strings have to be struck, as this can cause errors to be detected otherwise.

Thus the Auto Bass can recognize the chords you play:

– the guitar has to be in tune

Attention: If you play your guitar not in standard tuningyou have to convert to the actual tuning, with respect to the key selector switch

– the volume-control has to be on maximum
– the sound-control has to be neutral
– the key-selector switch must be set to the correct key

To make this adjustment you need to know in what key you play. If you do not know the key of the song you want to play, you can use a free online tool available here.

This is the link to determine the key by entering the chords
