    Are you referring to something like a Fractal Audio Axe FX, Avid Eleven Rack, or Line 6 POD Pro?

    I figured every processor in history was able to do this. Many are also preamps so you'd only *need* a power amp and speaker cab, but you always have the option to plug into the front end or effects return (thus using the power section only) of a combo, too.

  4. If you are looking for clean studio bass tones a channel strip might be worth considering. Different ones will include compression, limiting, gain block, eq some will include gating like de esser. The dbx ProVocal also includes modulation effects chorus or flanger as well as delay and reverb. You can save presets and control them via front panel commands or midi.

    Back in the day, lots of folks used an Alesis Midiverb IV.

    Line 6 Pods and Behringer V-Bass had rackable offerings.

    Rocktron Intellifex or Chameleon worked.

    ADA MB-1 was a terrific bass preamp & processor that Les Claypool himself used for decades.

    ART NightBass series was an '80's rack mainstay.

    Many pros use Eventide rack processors.

    Boss even made a couple that held their own - the VF-1 and SE-50.

    Lexicon and the MPX series.
