VT Bass DI Question/Help
For all the VT Bass users out there - I know there are many...
I just picked up this pedal and I am loving the 'one' tone I have been able to dial in - I am generally running a P-Bass into a PF800, which already sounded awesome - now its just at another level
The question I have is about the Gain on the pedal. I literally can't go above 11 o'clock without it turning into a fuzz box - maybe even 10:30 when I hit some lows. And the lows just sound terrible with the Gain above 11 o'clock, no definition - almost like the cab is farting out (which its not)
I have tried turning down the Gain on the amp - generally set at 1:30 - literally no difference except quieter
I have tried matching the Gain on pedal and amp - no better
I tried setting the Amp flat across the board - no better
I tried the FX loop and it actually made things worse
Is this similar to your experiences? Just wondering if I got a bum pedal - or is there some magic way to achieve Unity Gain I don't know of?
Also - the Rage setting recommended in the manual is the absolute worse thing I have heard in my life - I can't imagine ever using this - which has me wondering - is something wrong with the pedal - is something wrong with my setup?
I am considering returning or at least exchanging the pedal - but before I do - any help, opinions, advice would be very much appreciated.
