I tried searching for an answer on this but couldn't find anything. Apologies if there's already a thread discussing this.. if there is please point me there!
I'm playing a show this Saturday, doing some hip hop and funk tunes. Many of the songs I'll be using the Boss OC-2 to get that synthy bass tone and to hit the lower notes my 4 stringer can't hit.
My setup for the show will be quite simple: Fender bass>Boss Tu-2>EBS Multicomp> Boss OC-2.
I can almost garauntee that the soundman will likely DI me. Will the OC-2 still sound the same going through DI into the PA? My sound for this gig heavily relies on that pedal and if it can't come across through the PA I'm basically sh*t out of luck..
In your opinion, will I need to request him to mic the amp? In my experience most soundmen don't prefer this but I want to make sure that my oc-2 tone comes through the PA sounding good. I don't think there will be a ton of time soundchecking as this is an "indy night" show with at least 4 other bands and we are not headlining it or anything.
Any input on this is greatly appreciated! Sorry if it's a "noob" question.
