Anyone used the Raven Labs USIP yet?

  1. Curious if it's as good as it looks.

    hey man,

    i tried it last night through an epifani 1x12.

    * tone is very transparent; you'll hear nothing but your bass; no tube warmth, but a great clean signal

    * tons of features and EQ options

    * requires wall wart :-(

    * overall, a nice unit - but I need tubes to warm up my otherwise sterile sound
     
  3. Thanks for the reply. That's what I was hoping to hear. I'm currently using a Demeter, and it's great, but I've been thinking a more snappy, un-warm, solid state tone would probably cut through better in the FOH mix.
    Did you use it in a live application through the board?

    didn't get to try it live.

    i think it's a solid unit, but it's pretty pricy.

    i hate wall warts and it's 1.5 rack spaces.
