    I have and it's great. Much of what I do involves going straight into the PA with little or no need for an amp so this is perfect. Also, my old Trace Elliot has no XLR out so I need a good DI.
  3. This little box is at the end of my effect-chain and it is always on. The colour-button gives me the perfect EQ-setting. When I switch it off, I am always dissappointed how thin my bass (Basscollection) sounds through my Yamaha 1*15" amp. There are the normal EQ-controls (low, mid , high) but I keep all of those at 12 o'clock.
    On the other hand, I have never managed to get any decent distortion from it. I own it for about a year now. Good thing is that the dissortion has a blend-button and a separate volume-control. So, I turn the blend completely off, in this way I only get dry signal and I set the volume slightely higher than normal. So I can use the 'dissortion' as a volume-boost.

    Conclusion, I like it a lot, although I only use half of it.
