So I recently made a thread about me getting the Sansamp Programmable BDDI for my birthday. I love it so far. I have a fat, clean tube like boost on my channel one and a nice almost synthy fuzz on my channel 3. The problem I noticed when I was setting channel 2. I was going for a sort of Raw, heavy overdrive, to add a lot of color and grit without much fuzz or distortion. I notice that very early on (at around halfway on the "drive knob") I start to get a clipping noise. On the distortion channel, it would get a tiny bit of grit, and when I went to push it farther, would either softly clip and push out some boomy lows (the opposite of what I wanted) or completely overdrive the pedal and I would get hissy poppy sounds. This also happens on my clean channel. If I'm not very careful with the drive button, I get the same boomy, over compressed lows that eat up my tone. I have 3 active basses and a passive that's out of commission, so I tried it with my Jay Turser active. It works fine, but now the distorted settings aren't distorted enough. I could work around that if the Stingray wasn't my main bass. I'm running Stingray -> Sansamp -> Acoustic B200. I'm using the passive input (active doesn't work -- long story) but it is most definitely not the amp clipping. I have the amp down at around 1 volume and gain because it's a 200 watt amp inside of my house. I did try using the effects loop, but I get pretty much nothing out of it. It could be that the Stingray is overpowering it. Basically I just get unfiltered Stingray tone, and if I push the pedal, I get a lot of hiss. Tomorrow I'll get a chance to try it with my GK 400RB and 410 cab... I hope I get better luck then. I searched, and found similar problems, but not a lot of help. Hopefully you guys can help me in a way that doesn't require more pedals?
