So, through hours and hours of playing and some help from a Zoom B3, I've determined that I really like the different tones I can get with the Eden sound. "The Heaven" Eden WT-550 amp model on the Zoom has really opened me up to this. I assume this modeling is a fairly good interpretation of what a real Eden pre sounds like. I have a LMIII right now. The VPF is very useful for approaching the sound I'm so close to getting, but the mid cut is centered lower that the Enhance control on the Eden pres (360 vs. 500 hz). It's just a different flavor of the same idea. I've always wanted to stick an Empress ParaEQ in my effects loop to really be able to tweak my sound. I've also just missed out on a couple of Enablers, which at some point, I'm just gonna flat out own. I'll take my bass everywhere. But now, with this discovery, I'm really thinking about the WTDI. I could use it to send that Eden tone to the house, as well as use the amp's EQ to change my cabs. I'll still probably gas for the ParaEQ, too. So here's the ultimate question: would you rather have the "sound-in-a-box" approach plus the DI of the Eden, or would you shoot for the ParaEQ to shape it? I know the center points of the Eden graphs... I could theoretically easily make my own 'Enhance' with the parametric controls. Thanks for all of your input! Steer me well!
