score one for the big dog. no pedal, no squat. people were telling me to crank the input volume wide open. when i did this, it got wayyyyyy too loud and too much bottom end. so i set the rotarty controsl like so. mid 10, bass 4, treble 10 set the eq like so. bass below center detent, put mids all the way down, and then treble up above center detent. for live i will put up the mids and bass a bit more but cant in the studio right now because its my singers house. fudge. so good. i tried an aby looper and i was able to use both inputs, thickeded it up.
