Hi everyone, hope all is well. I recently ordered a DSM Simplifier Bass Station to begin recording bass direct for an industrial/doom/electronic/post-rock project with some friends. I like the demos I've heard online of the Simplifier but I'm not sure it'll have the tube dynamics I want for heavier fuzz stuff. I am planning on using the simplifier to blend a compressed, low-passed parallel signal with a fuzz in the preamp loop. In my experience recording guitar with pedalboards full of gain, it's nice to have a tube amp at the end of the chain to take the hit from whatever gain staging you have going on with pedals. I use an OX + Plexi to get direct guitar tones and am really happy with the nice and natural tube break up/compression I get from driving the amp hard. After looking around online it seems like the REDDI might be the kind of thing I'm looking for, but I am not sure. I like the idea that it is simple with minimal controls and I am thinking I can put that at the end of the chain to kind of act like a tube amp, compressing and breaking up organically as I push the input. I am not sure if this is really what it's designed for, however, so I am looking for some advice from existing REDDI users. My questions: 1.) Do you think the REDDI will improve my setup and do you recommend it for this application? I am planning on using the simplifier's cabsim and I'm pretty sure it'll be fine, but it does seem a little weird to have a tube stage after the cabsim rather than before... 2.) Does anyone have experience pushing the front end of the REDDI with overdrives, fuzzes, boosts and the like? Does it more or less behave like a tube amp would? Thanks a ton for your time and let me know what you think!
