MXR M-80 Soundclips?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BrentSimons, Apr 13, 2006.

  1. Hey Guys,
    I hope this post gets more interest. Do any of you have any soundclips with MXR M-80 DI? I would love to hear both clean and with the distortion channel. Thanks,

    me too! I am jonseing to buy one but have never heard one. I recently bought a BDDI after reading about the hype forever and I gotta say, it wasn't for me. Sucked all the sweet mids out of my Jazz bass and no amount of tweaking could make it sound as good as the bass did with the sans amp turned off.

    Maybe I'm just not getting it, but after a few days I took it back to the store. I really want a nice di type preamp box but want to preserve the nataural sweet mids. Hope the M80 is the answer!

  3. I don't have any webspace at the mo, but I can PM some to you once I record them. Might be useful to some as an archive cuz there aren't many samples of the distortion channel around. If your interested?

    Sign up at www.PutFile.com . The only restrictions are file size (which is huge IMO), and that if there are no views on a file for 6 months, it gets deleted (IMO 6 months is also huge!).

    The real plus: ITS FREE!!!!
  5. Awesome just got an account, I always had trouble with putfile.de so I was put off, but hurrah and the like, free hosting!! I like free stuff.

    File is 1.5Mb I think. Noise here

    0:00 - 0:30 - Effect + teeny tiny dirt
    0:31 - 0:50 - Effect (clean)
    0:54 - 1:08 - Really horrible distorted tones that I hate and I couldn't get anything other than this sound from the unit when I first got it and I was guna sell it and get a Sansamp, but then I found the following sound.
    1:09 - END - Mmmm, crunchy and nice and growly and nice.:smug:

    Keeping settings to myself, cuz it took me ages to find the sound that I wanted from this box, but the colour button is always pressed, adds extra bass.
    When I'm not using the distortion channel as a distortion I use it as a boost for my passive bass.
    Apologies for the shanty playing did it quickly and i'm suffering from lack of sleep.

    Hope that helps.

    sharing information, especially settings, is always good. I'm always open to new things to dial in and try. Remember that although "your" tone is awesome to you, it may not be to the taste of other people, so why not share your settings so others with the same box can experiment :)
  8. Think I was a little hasty in writing that part of the post, espescially when I had so much trouble finding samples of the distortion channel. So yes t'was silly of me to write that. :bag: Think it was the lack of sleep talking. :meh:
    I'm going to post the samples with settings in the sound sample thread, at the weekend or when I get chance.

    Sorry guys.
