EBS Multi comp question
So I picked up a new EBS Multicomp (says "true bypass") along the bottom the other day.
I bought it because I'm looking to achieve a more "tube like" sound on my SS amp.
My signal chain is Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass > wireless > Line 6 G50 > Boss Tuner > Sansamp BDDI Deluxe (tube setting) > Boss analog delay > EBS Multocomp > Markbass CMD102P.
The compressor is set to "tubey" (dip switch in the top position), side switch set to passive, gain set to unity.
The compression knob doesn't seem to do anything - is that normal for the "Tubey" setting?
Its not too noisy with the compression off, but it's pretty noisy when on. Is this just normal with solid state compression?
It does a bit of fattening up my tone, more than just the BDDI alone. But not as authentic as, not surprisingly, an actual tube amp.
Given my stated goal of having a tube like sound with my current amp, and given I just complained about the noise on this box, is there a better compression pedal option for me? (Yes, I've read bongo's page - great stuff and what put me to this pedal in the first place)
