After seeing jocks thread i was wondering, would This be suitable for use as a bass preamp? Are there any other 'cheap' alternatives for boosting the siginal from a bass to line level as well as having some eq options? A tube is not imperative, but would be nice. Ive played my part in all the other behringer thread and i know how some people stand with regard to them. Just let me say, i dont want to hear it. Its not that im being ignorant, i just see it from a differant angle. So please, dont turn this into another typical behringer thread. PS: What is the phase rev option affect my sound? Also, how do parametic eq's work? With this one i would assume that you simply choose what frequency you want to adjust, and then boost or cut it accordingly, then select another frequency and do the same? Edit: after reading more, it seems like it has no mid controls? can anyone confirm this for me?
