Filters are used to boost or attenuate (turn down) a range of frequencies in order to shape a sound.

The Electro-Harmonix Enigma is a powerful and precise envelope filter fine-tuned for bass frequency response. Sculpt your envelope to reveal a truly expressive tone, with a defined and unique signature. Enigma will deliver tight and smooth control over the complete 40 Hz to 3 kHz range, with a consistent and even sweetness.

Need some edge? Engage Enigma's analog distortion and dial in anything from subtle bite to dominating crush.

You can even plug in an optional expression pedal to control the filter sweep with your foot. With the ability to adjust Q, sweep range, and filter type, you'll also wind up with of the most versatile wahs available.

Enigma: a mysteriously musical envelope filter for bass guitar.

Your choice of low-, high-, or band-pass filter with cutoff frequency controlled either manually by an expression pedal (not included; I have a Yamaha FC7 which worked fine) or by a sweep triggered automatically by its guess at when notes start. In the latter case you can choose the range and tweak the sensitivity of the triggering.

Executive summary: lots of cool "pew pew" sounds. I like it!

The manual warns that with some settings it can be "INCREDIBLY loud." They aren't kidding. Definitely keep your amp volume very low while you're plugging things in and experimenting with the settings.
