I've been gassing for one of these for a while and found a bonkers deal. I've been wanting that thicker, SVTish, wall of bass sort of sound that I wasnt getting from my basses. So, GAS whispered in my ear like a sweet tone-ghost, "TUUUUBBBEEESSSS." I fought. No, I said. Not until I sell stuff. The Empress comp sells... No more excuses. I've only fussed with it for 30 minutes or so, but I wanted to show off some of its tone. So, heres a dumb riff with a pick, which I am not a pick player but it highlights the tone more. Chain: Fender MIA P- TI flats Bassbone OD, set flat Glowplug Presonus iTwo Garageband Settings on the clip: GP varies in the "hot/ cold" knob only. Crossover set at noon, dry mix at 3:00, and Volume off (it doesnt need a boost) :00-:12-- GP off. Dry signal only :17-:29-- GP Hot/Cold at 9:00 :36-:50-- GP Hot/Cold at 12:00 :54- end-- GP Hot/Cold at 3:00 It almost gets too much bass, but that can be adjusted with the mix knob and the crossover. Everything dimmed produces a huge overdriven sound. I like the sweet spot of Hot/Cold at 10-10:30, Crossover at 1:00, and Mix at 3:00. Just on the edge of break up. Mix on full is too flubby. GP sounds great on and warms up the Lakland 5502 with Pure Blues too. No clip of that unless desired. So far, I really like it. I think it'll stay for now.
