    We always talk about the difference,I have both now, so I decided to help the people on TB and I made some samples,
    I know they're not good enough to show the RREAL differences in sound, but I think they help enough to figure out the basic tone of this two pedals, hope this will help someone
    and now...tell me who is who....:p
    the sample are normalized so please don't consider the output level.

    flat setting for both, blend at max:
    ROUND 1

    ROUND 2

    I would say:
    1. round: 1 = Behringer 2 = Sansamp
    2. round: 1 = Behringer 2 = Sansamp
    3. round: 1 = Sansamp 2= Behringer

    but that was difficult!

    great idea, Micolao.

    I'm very excited. I own the Sansamp BDDI programable.

    I really don't know which is which, but I prefer the second one. It sounds a bit smoother, especially in the overdrive clips. So I'll guess#2 is the BDDI.

    when you say #2 remeber to specify the "round" you're talking about ;)
    they're not in the same order in all the 3 rounds.

    Round 2: 1 = Sansamp, 2= Behringer

    i prefer the 2nd clip on each pair....although the flat settings i like both about equal.

    i really don't care for the sound of the first overdrive.

    i'm hoping the sansamp is the second clip in round 2 and round 3. round one is a toss up.
