    Hi ya’ll! Here’s my demo of the EBS MicroBass 3:



    And here’s how it sounds straight into the DAW:

    Very interesting unit... I don't really need one, but I'm looking for reasons. These demos help ;)

    Oh, how clean would you say it is?

    Very cool. I have a MicroBass 2 that I use all the time in the studio and as a backup in my gig bag to patch into the PA if I have amp problems. Odd controls but very good sound. Do you know the 2 well enough to comment on the differences?

    Oh, and can you run it off phantom power from the board, like the MicroBass 2? That's pretty much the only way I use it, and the web page for the MicroBass 3 makes no mention of power options other than outboard 9v.

    Nice demo, (the first one is all I heard). I love how you isolate the bass briefly in the mix. I was a bit confused til I realized your bass is tuned to “scary”.

    As long as you watch the gain, I’d say that it’s REALLY clean (on the clean side :) )

    Sadly, I haven’t played enough through the MicroBass 2 to be able to comment on the differences (although, as far as I know it needs an external power source and can not run on phantom power from the PA/FOH) :/

    Wow, I love it! Kinda wish the comp sounded like the Tubesim setting on the EBS MultiComp, but no complaints about the EQ or the OD.

    dang. Your videos and involvement in music is really amazing. I have a feeling you are going to get far in the music world. Almost all of us lack some part in commitment and make little excuses. You just dont seem to lack any of it. Your play style, your gear, and understanding is just at another level where most of us cant even envision.

    Truly outstanding. I only wish the best for you!

    No problem. You have an aura that most people dont have and even through the PC screen, it is very evident.
    Sadly most of us are consumed with too many material things that mean nothing in the long run and that, blankets our aura and existence and chokes our passion. You are doing it right. The passion is evident. It is on a different level than most.

    The only thing I can say beyond this for you is, if you havent tried singing and playing, you should give it a try. I understand your vocalist might feel a little crowded but I get this feeling that you could probably pull it off, if you make a place for it in the band.

    Anyway it is always good to watch your uploads, it makes us viewers feel great!

    Wait, I just watched again and noticed that even with the drive level cranked, it looks like switching the Drive on with pretty much any of the drive channel blended in makes the signal *quieter*. Whaaaaa?? Timestamp from about 12 minutes to 14 minutes give or take.

    That was because I was running the drive in series and not parallel (or if it was the other way around... :D ) :)
