I'm curious how anyone out there may be using the JHS Crayon (or even the Colorbox). I really like what I hear in the few demos of it paired with bass I can find online. Maybe I'm wrong, but somehow I get the feeling that setting it cleaner with just a little bit of grit can get that tubby, rubbery bass tone you'd hear on a Joe Meek recording. (Man, I LOVE that bass and drum sound.) My SGFX Beta died on me so I'm looking for it's replacement. Only, I'm wondering if it makes any sense to run a Crayon in between my preamp and DI to FOH. My thinking is that if the Crayon clones the sound of a Neve channel strip, wouldn't it make sense to put it last in the signal chain to fully recreate the effect?
