    Does anyone have a soundclip of the B/Amp using the blendable overdrive? I am really curious about the non-pristine/clean possibilities. I would like to dial in some color in one of the memory presets.
  2. Can we include LPF, HPF and compression in the discussion? Don't mean to highjack your thread.

    anyone even using the overdrive/distortion and compression features on the B/Amp?
  5. Yes. I am. I think many B|Amp owners do.
    You might have better luck in the B|Amp at NAMM thread.

    Yes I am using Channel 1 clean with compression, Channel 2 O/D with compression and Channel 3 is distortion with compression.. Very simple and easy to use.. I wish I could send you some samples, but I'm not that good with recording to the computer..
  7. Heard BI blond Genzler “ dirty” tone perfectly Could save it as preset
  8. Used it with NV215 last night.
    With Fender Bassman Pro Neo 115 tonight.

    I have my “home” setting as clean, with no effects and just a little eq. Mem 1 is my slap/solo setting, with compression and heavier eq. Mem 2 is my rock setting, with overdrive and totally different eq, along with a little compression. Mem 3 is my in your face, balls out distortion setting, using distortion 1.

    Edit: I’m so impressed with the distortions, OD, and compressor in the B Amp, that I’ve eliminated 4 pedals from my pedalboard in favor of the onboard effects. That includes a Darkglass B3K, Keeley Bassist, EHX Big Muff, and EHX Bass Soulfood.
    My revised board.
