Ok, I JUST got a new rig (Carvin RL610: comes with a 2x10 and a 1x15). The amp has a great big bunch of stuff I just don't know how to dial in, so I'm hoping you all can guide me in the right direction. First, sweepable mids...? Second, Compression/Limiter (two knobs: Threshold and Ratio) Third: Gate? Fouth: EQ: 50-80-125-250-500-800-1.3K-2.6K-5K I'm looking for a very crisp, snappy sound just this side of harsh, but the low E should still rumble a bit? Too much to ask for? Almost like banging a piano string. I'm using an EBMM 4 String (3band eq) which is active (but I've gotten better results plugging into the passive input, will this hurt the amp or cabs?) Then, I also play a Yamaha Attitude Ltd II. I'm thinking I'll need a Radial Bass Bones or something to boost the Yamaha so there's no drastic presence or volume change when switching instruments. In otherwords...HELP! ...let the laughing and pointing commence. Thanks.
