Hi all, long time lurker who finally has a question that I couldn't find an answer to by searching the forum... My technological knowledge will leave most wanting but let's give it a shot: I've been using a dbx subharmonic synthesizer to have it do what they do to my bass' signal(in live application), and for the most part love it. The issue I have is when I use my distortion pedal, all of the benefit from the synthesizer disappears. I'm aware of bass specific overdrives that let you dial the dry signal, but that's not the route I really want to take. I've been looking at a few crossovers, since I like my dbx I'm looking at a dbx 223 or 234. I did see some smaller units made by Rolls that are intriguing as well, but the dbxs seem more versatile if I ever want to expand. So first I want to know if this type of crossover is the type that I should be looking at. If it is, how would I properly configure it all? I'm thinking: Bass(or guitar) Crossover High/ \Low Guitar Preamp(effects in loop) Subharmonic Synthesizer Poweramp Bass Head Guitar Cab Bass Cab Also interested whether or not putting the effects pedals before the guitar preamp would work. As you can tell I'm wanting to try this setup on guitar as well, since in theory I love the subharmonic synthesizer on guitar, but it sounds amazingly bad straight into an amp. Thanks in advance for the help.
