    This is directed to anyone who owns and Digitech Bass Squeeze. I just recently picked one up and the manual seem kind of light on detail. I am kind of confused what the X-over knob does. I understand that it adjust the amount of frequency from the low to high band, but what the hell, in practice, does that mean?

    Personally, I don't care, i live by the rule "If you can't get a decent sound of it in 5 minutes don't waste your money on it", i have owned it about 3 weeks now and i'm getting rid of it.

    I never said that I did not get a decent sound out of it. I want to understand how it works. Knowing this will actually allow me to tinker in meaningful manner and shape the sound I want. Thanks for the suggestion though. I am sorry it did not work out for you.

    :) I saw a thread when i did search some time ago about how all the knobs worked
     
  5. I used to own one. The x-over knob controls the frequency point where the signal is split to be sent to either hi band or lo band, for the two seperate compressors it has. The range of the knob is from 100Hz to 3KHz.

    I use mine with the crossover at minimum (100Hz), the low comp at 12:00 & the high comp at 9:00. This way it maintains a consistent amount of low frequencies in my sound whether I play a low B, high up on the G string or slap.

    Give it a go.
