EDIT: I have the CD-BT2, if that makes a difference. It's the newer CD one, that lifts up as a whole to put CDs into it. Also, I've thought about getting something like a Sansamp BDDI or something similar to hopefully help the sound quality. Is this possible? I've read a TBer use the trainer and the BDDI in conjunction, but I don't really get how to do it and what it does besides make the sound better. I've done a search, and most of the posts were either about how people hated or loved it, or what settings people used. Sorry, but I'm a real noob with the EQ/Electronics/Amps/etc part of the bass world. My problem is, WHAT settings should I use? I can't seem to find anything that makes the bass stand out. I just want to know the best setting on the Tascam Trainer so that the CD's basslines stand out. Like, should I use the VSA setting? And should I be changing the pitch? I did try to do these things, and the only thing I really noticed was the songs can either move faster or slower. I noticed if I used the BBE, Boost and Enhance helped hearing basslines a bit, but sometimes I just couldn't hear them. The CUT feature does seem great though, but I want to learn the basslines right now, not add my own. I can't get anything I seem to want out of it. I'm wondering if it's my headphones, but I own a pair of Sony V6's, and they seem to be studio standards. I know tons of people who do professional recording using these headphones. Thus I am forced to believe I just don't know enough about the settings of this CD Trainer, such as EQ, VST, Pitch Change, etc. I am also looking into new headphones, if anyone can recommend a great pair for 150 or under, that'd be cool. Also, I can't figure out how to get rid of effects while playing a bass with the trainer. I originally wanted to hook this up to my Raven Labs PHA-1 headphone amp and use that as an EQ, rather than mess with the Tascam's settings. Is this possible? I think it should be, but I'm not sure what cables I should get to hook them up to one another. And whether I should plug my bass into the CD trainer or the Raven Labs. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me.
