I have the OmniCabSim Plus pedal and yup, it's as terrific as everyone in this forum praises it to be. EQ / direct box / cabinet simulator / headphone amp. It sounds tremendous and is the ideal tool to include at the end of your effects chain.
The only knock I have is that the pedal continues to "evolve" -- it's steady being tweaked and modified. I only wish I had some of these newer tweaks on mine!
Will add magic to your DI tone !!

If you ''go direct'' live or in the studio, this unit is the missing piece of puzzle for your rig. It does way more than a typical preset-based simulator and it doesn't involve anything digital, which is a plus for most of us, even today.
The versatily provided by all 6 knobs allows adaptation to all the basses and preamps in the world to sculpt a unique tone. You can see it as an EQ voiced to compliment a preamp, but the way it shapes the sound is really difficult to put into words. It brings the sound in your face with a subtle compression, just like a mic'ed cab.
It has helped me control my playing and my sound and I feel like a better musician since I've been using it!!

- The Philosophy behind the design is to allow the user to CREATE their own cabinet response settings, moving away from the typical preset cabinet simulators in the market. This approach let the musician to define his own sound and getting an accurate reproduction of it when recording and playing live gigs, without depending on mic placement, amplifier or cabinet availability.. Just dial in your favorite tone, tune your cabinet response and go straight to the PA or recording gear!!
