    Hey i have a gig saturday and i'm trying to sort out my sound and my effects for the show.

    I basically have 4 settings i play on.

    1. finger style - mid contour filter on, mids turned up, bass and treble up.

    2. slap - mid contour filter on, bass turned up

    3. mutron on - mid contour filter on, mids and treble up

    4 deep impact on - mid contour filter on, bass and mids turned up.

    basically i change my tone all the time to go with each song and i use effects on about 5 tunes. this is really easy to do in practice but i'm not sure how it will translate on stage. it's very important that i can change my tone when i change effects and styles.

    i guess if the sound guy mics me it is not an issue. but i hear micing the bass doesn't sound as good.

    i have a direct out but i don't think this will work with the fact that i change my tone through out the set and use effects.

    here is the 800RB owners manual http://www.gallien-krueger.com/manuals/800rb.pdf i couldn't cut and pastehttp://www.gallien-krueger.com/manuals/800rb.pdf

    it looks like the effect loop comes after the direct out. so i can't use my effects and the direct out????

    it looks like the effects loop is post EQ. does this mean i can change the tone on my bass and head and it will affects the effects too? i remember trying the effects loop one and it sound like crap through my cab?????

    i'm confused :confused:

    any suggestions? it seems that just micing the speaker is the best thing to do.
