    I suspected that it was a bassballs but I wasn't quite sure. I thought it sounded like it was being used with something else. The thing that mostly made me think it wasn't a bassballs was the slow dive on the last bass note of the song. Sounded like a micro-synth set to a really slow decay. Also it sounded very full for a bassballs, but that could be down to my settings!

    Thoughts?
     
  4. i THINK it's a bassballs.. but the overdrive is too good for a bassballs..

    could be an Akai Deep Impact too tho..

    With the right settings the bassballs wouldn't do too bad a job anyway. Esp if you tried it in combo with another overdrive or something.
