    For those of you who use a Sansamp BDDI where are your knobs generally set? I've been playing around with different sounds lately and am just curious what other guys are doing. Here's mine although this past weekend I turned the blend up to about 75%.

    You have the V2 which I'm not really a fan of. Still prefer the original. On my V1 I run

    blend: 12
    bass: 10
    treble: 10:30
    drive: 11
    presence: 1
    level: unity

    With those settings I get a clean sound with a touch of dirt when I dig in. Also with that setting I still have midrange coming through the signal.

  6. I've wondered that myself. I would imagine it is noon? No cut or boost but maybe Tech 21 will chime in.

    Mine isn't used as an always-on pedal, so my settings will be very different from most. I use it as a clean EQ for chords on two songs my fusion band does live.
    Level at unity, blend off, drive off, bass at 10:00, treble at 2:00, presence at noon.

    With the V2 Bass Driver DI, setting the midrange to about 11 o'clock is the proper position to match the sound of the version 1.

    Settings are dependent on a number of different factors. Your instrument, type of pickups, playing style and what the unit is plugged into. Our sample settings in the manual were done with a vintage Fender P Bass directly into a mixer through near field monitors. These settings are to give you an idea of the sounds and to give you a starting point. If you are using a different bass and running into an amp that has already had its tone controls set a certain way, chances are the settings in the manual and any other recommended settings will not translate.
  9. See? Now that's customer service! :)
    Thank you chiming in Tech 21.
