    about 3/4 on the process, 3/4 on the bass.. this is a 362SW

    any more on the process and the sound becomes a bit too 'brittle' sounding for my tastes

    I recently recieved a used 411 and like it better than the Aphex Bass X-citer I owned for a short period. The Aphex generated a ton of hiss, where the BBE is very quiet. I didn't want to subscribe to "Moore's Law" on this (if some is good, more must be better!)

    I thought Moore's Law was something along the lines of computer processors doubling in capacity every 18 months. I do like More's Law, though!
