    I just got my Nemesis NA650. I tried it out last night, and it sounds great, except for one thing: even with the input gain turned way down, when the strings are hit hard, there is a popping or snapping sound, and the clipping light flashes on. I can't really turn the input gain down any more, or it would be completely off. Is it possible that the pickups on the bass are too close to the strings, or perhaps just really crappy pickups? This happens regardless of whether the on-board compression is activated or not.

    try lowering the pickups and/or reduce your "on board" volume on the guitar. it this guitar an 18v active?? those can be a problem for some preamps.

    The bass just has crappy passive pickups. It's a cheapo Peavey bass. I'll try lowering the pickups first then, and see if that helps. I wish I had a better bass to try out with it, but I have to make do with what is available for now.
