VT Bass DI bite switch question
I've never had a VT bass pedal before, of any generation. I've read a lot about them on this site, though, so I'm aware of some of the concerns people have had in the past.
Specifically, I noticed that many people had concerns about needing to turn down the treble knob significantly on their v1 pedals to reduce clankiness.
It seems that a change was made in v2 pedals such that a gradual low pass filter was added when the speaker sim button on these pedals was NOT pushed down, apparently to help with this issue.
My question is about the "bite" button and speaker sim buttons on the new VT bass DI pedal that I just bought. It seems like when I have the bite button engaged, I notice the same hyper-bright condition that people with v1 pedals mentioned.
When I turn off the bite button, the treble is far more controlled, and I can leave the treble knob at noon position with no clankiness.
As far as I can tell, the speaker sim button doesn't seem to add the gradual low pass filter on the VT bass DI as it was on the v2 pedal when the button was NOT selected.
So, I'm wondering, was the gradual low pass filter, which was added on the v2 pedal, given it's own on/off control in the form of the "bite" switch? One thing that makes me consider this is that the manual states that the sample SVT, fliptop settings, etc are all intended to be used with the bite switch engaged. So, maybe the gradual low pass filter from the v2 pedal is now engaged by NOT pushing down the "bite" switch?
Hope this makes sense - I'm just wondering if anyone has noticed this?
Maybe Tech21NYC would want to chime in?
