    Anybody use a J Station? It's got bass amp models. What settings do you like? Mine's coming today!

    hey Jon! I love mine... the SVT, Trace and SWR models are ok. I bought/use it for my guitar thou.

    I've yet to really do much bass thru it... I did manage to fake Tony Levin's phased sound from the 70's.

    Cool! Do you only use it for recording or have you tried it as a preamp?

    With my basses... just into head phones or sound card.

    the Strat, I've done both plus in-line to my Sunn or Ashdown. I've been meaning to try it thru the effects loop too.

    I think your server is down or something, I can't access the tune or your site.

    We're at Buckalew's on LBI again this Friday if you're free!

    Grrrr... It just went down again :(

    it's a shared host, I bet the latest worm taxed to too heavy. Hopefully it'll be up again soon.

    I'll try... but I'm living on a part time income at the moment. I'd love to check y'all out!

    Very cool tones! The UPS man just dropped it off, so I'm going to go try mine out!

    ----------

    OK, after a few hours w/ this thing, I don't know why more bassists don't use it. I haven't directly compared it to the competition (bassvamp, pod) but it sounds very good and has lots of features bassists can use, like a splitband compressor, a juicy autowah, and a nice chorus. My favorite is the SWR model. Even some of the guitar amps sound good. Even if you were just looking for a headphone amp it would be cool.

    I need to get the cables to hook it up to my 'puter so I can do the deep editing and so I can download the new amp models.
