My preferred basic and standard sound uses only a BBE Bmax-T. That's the sound I like and what I want to be the core basis of my live sound. However, where I play in somewhat an acoustic trio (2 acoustics and electric bass) playing originals and acoustified versions of cover tunes I also have the need to adapt my bass sounds. So I thought I'd try out a Bass V-amp Pro where I found a good deal on one. This would allow me to pretty much twist and warp my core sound when needed for the needs of those specific cover tunes. Example... something like a chorus'ed and mildly distorted bass for a Cure song, or a very acoustic sounding bass for something, or even a very Octaved dub bass for something by sublime, etc. What I'm struggling with is finding a good way to tie these two together. I'd prefer to go into the Bmax-T first and using the V-amp through the effects send/return, but everything seems to be getting very muddled by doing it that way compared to the same sounds just via the V-amp. Yes, I can adapt the sounds I want in the V-amp to compensate, but I just want to make sure I'm not overlooking something on the V-amp that would make this easier to do. The V-amp Pro almost has TO many options on the back of it which can be very cryptic when first. Thoughts? Ideas? Abject criticism? .
