    Anyone tried this yet? Looks cool. See it Here Me? One good bass tone is fine for me so a standard BDDI is all I need, but if you are soloing alot or playing many different styles of songs, it would be a useful tool.

    They went thru ALL that trouble to make this thing, and STILL left out a mid control.

    +1. I like my BDDI but without a mid control I'm not upgrading.
  4. I agree. Not enough have been changed to warrant an upgrade.

    Maybe the BDDI would eat the souls of children and destroy countless speakers if they added a mid knob.

    There's gotta be a rational reason for it - and that seems pretty rational to me. :ninja:

    Seriously, they need to add a mid knob. Judging by TB, their sales would at least double if they got rid of the belief that "it sucks all my mids".

    It looks pretty cool. It certainly has a lot of features that I can see being handy. I personally like the simplicity of the regular 'ol Bass Driver DI, though.

    yo i've got the more basic programmable version and i've found that i've only really used one tone from it! I got it found a sound i liked and kept it!

    I found, for my application of this with my current bands and work is that I got three slight variations of essentially the same tone. Although that might just be me trying to make something I like sound better.... I suppose Ideally you would set up a channel for clean, mild grit and full on gain/od

    I just found full on drive a bit clanky and the clean well.. I'm not a fan of really clean tones!! lol

    One advantage of it is that if you swap between active and passive basses you can assign one channel with a boost in volume to match the other active bass perhaps!?

    So when is Behringer coming out with the clone of this ;):rollno:
  11. So will the next upgrade that includes the mid be called the Bass Driver Double Deluxe Direct Input?

    Or BDDDDI?

    I'm just curious how many D's they can cram into the name.:p

    Technically, it's just BDD now. :p

    I'll just keep my original. :p
  17. Yeah, I should have bought one of those instead, too. I guess I'll just buy an RPM and hook my BDDI up to that. =X

    +1 to everything. No mid control, still not worth getting.
  19. im made the Suggestion that they put one more knob on and stop the mid suck

    Now playing: The Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive
    via FoxyTunes

    just turn down the bass and treble. that creates a mid peak at ~750hz. which is the same mid freq center as many other preamps, like the MXR M80 (which is also a pretty solid DI). works for me. para di sounds different/worse


    or velcro a RBI to your pedal board.
