    This sounds like rationalizing the purchase of a second b3k... ;)

    haha, yeah seriously :) Right now I have a Dr. Scientist The Elements running into it as a slightly dirty boost to kick things up a notch when needed. A VMT is tempting to put into that spot, but I'm pretty happy with it as is so I may just stop swapping pedals for a while :)

    Your second settings are VERY similar to my current B7K settings. I might have the drive closer to 9:30 or 10:00, but I decided that for most purposes I really don't need the "Attack" on. My EQ settings are Low=1:30, Treble=11:30/12:00, Low-mid=9:00, High-mid=1:30.

    Has anyone tried using a boost after the VMT? I'm curios what it would do. I'm going to change a couple things on my board tonight. I've had my TC noir mini in a bypass loop and I'm starting to think I'm wasting that loop when I could simply just have the tuner outside of loop and it would still tune/bypass when I wanted it to. I'm thinking of putting my LPB1 in the same loop as the VMT. Hmmmmmm....

    I would think boost after dirt is just a volume increase, whereas a boost before dirt is ... more and louder dirt.
     
  6. After getting the B7K i have no need for the B3K and it has just sat in its box. :(

    gregmon, try running your bassdrive at 18v after the VMT on the comp cut setting. that's what I'm doing right now and it's heavy.

    So I normally run the dirty on my Fender 100T and my Moog Taurus pedals through my cleaner GK rig. However, I've had my Moog at home playing with settings, etc. and the last few weeks have used the GK for bass for a change of pace. Been having fun with both the VMT and B3K on the board and dialing in all the different flavors they offer!

    So before it would run the boost INTO it as opposed to the other way around. I guess I thought the boost was what you wanted AFTER most pedals but I'll try it both ways. I didn't think of that. Thanks.


    Unfortunately I have no way to run my bass drive @ 18v right now. That comp cut is a massive boost @ 9v!! I barely get past 8 or 9 o'clock max on the level. Crazy loud pedal. I am seriously itching to try it @ 18v, just don't have the funds to grab anything right now to accomplish that :(

    I wish dg would build an octaver with a clean tone pot that can get really bright and track like a beast down to a low e

    I wish they made one of every effect!! I guy can dream can't he? Who knows that the future will hold for DG. You never know what they'll come out with next.

    The MarkBass SuperSynth tracks pretty good on the B in octave mode - I just can't recall what it has in the way of clean blend. I do know it'll do at least an octave down and 1 and 2 up...

    It has -2, -1, and +1 octaves (not +2). You can mix in as much clean as you want, but there are no options for altering the tone of the octaves signals.

    Oh, and the tracking is pretty good. It's been a while since I tested it clean to see how far down it goes, but overall it's one of the best tracking effects I've ever owned.

    I'll respectfully disagree with you there. It tracks really well on the E string below the fifth fret. It does not, however, have great sustain for those same fretted positions. To your original wish, if DG made an octave pedal I'm sure it would sound great!

    Thanks. I knew it was 2 in one direction or the other...
    That's what I get for thinking about it too much out of reach of the manual. I thought to myself - "Why would I want to go 2 octaves below 30 Hz?"

    It does sound nice and full higher up tho...
