    Anyone have any settings they'd like to share on a Boss lmb-3 bass limiter/enhancer? Im looking for an evened out progressive rock tone that is also versatile and also wanting to get every out take of the pedal I can get.
  2. enhance=0... which is a shame because i like the sound but hate the hiss

    Never had much luck with that pedal, to be honest.

    Really a shame 'cause the enhance thing could get you close to a Chris Squire-ish tone, depending on your rig of course. I also keep the enhance off. As for settings, I've played around with the pedal for awhile and got back to the manual's fingerpicking settings. I play rock, blues and sometimes funk stuff.

    The only thing I hear about ANY "enhance" circuit is that it is a mid scoop. I don't see how that translates to a Chris Squire tone.

    I use mine as a limiter, (at home, low volume) so the ratio is pretty high, 3-4 o'clock, and the threshold to taste for volume, maybe noon-ish. No enhance at all ever... I have a pretty high line level from using VT or Rustybox and overdrive/fuzz and I like the impact of that on the limiter. (On my gig rig I use an alesus micro limiter in the effect/send; it doesn't have boss's tone suck.)
