    Coming soon. I've recorded clips for both including a control. Which is just the bass straight into the machine.
    I will post all three without identifying them. Blind test.
    Then you guys can hit us with your thoughts. Should be fun.

    Machine in question is an old Korg D12.

    Just from the first ten seconds, DI 2 sounds a little more muted and compressed, DI 3 sounds deeper and grittier.

    All different flavors of awesome IMO

    The third one had a huge sub low end, something I would have used a HPF on. I also heard some sort of rattle sounds like within the instrument which was a bit distracting.

    Otherwise they all sounded good, I mostly compared the second half.

    Hi 10 cc....waiting to return home where I have my trusty headphones....

    One question: how did you set the tone controls on the brighton for this comparison? From the picture it seems like a huge bass boost maybe?

    By the way...that springy noise on the recordings comes from bad compression when the bit rate and other things gets managed by the soundcloud engine. Sometimes conversion can be tricky.

    On my computer, D1 is a lot lower in volume than the other two. Is that by design ? Anyways, I'll say D1 is the machine, D2 is the Broughton, and D3 is the Reddi.

    I'm gonna record and download the third one again today and see if that sound mentioned above can be corrected when downloading to soundcloud.
    Also I'm gonna try and add one or two more contenders to the mix today as well.

    I can. I'll try and set up a different little number with the Jazz. Good call!
  10. My guess is that di1 and di3 are the fancy DI boxes and di2 is the control. I've never heard a P15 before, but suspect that di1 is the REDDI.

    Double check the sample rates. On some systems I get that sort of artifact when they don't match up across the board. Slightly hotter levels would be helpful in my case too.

    Having never heard/played the REDDI or P15, I'm guessing:

    1: REDDI
    2: Control
    3: P15

    There's definitely some sort of ringing in the high end. Maybe an artifact from uploading to soundcloud? It's in all 3 clips.

    I finally used my studio headphones....wow. The 3 clips sound very different.

    I REALLY don't know which one is the REDDI, or direct or the Broughton, but I'll play anyway.

    I say n° 3 is the Broughton basing my choice on the fact that this clip has a clear bass and highs emphasis, with a very pleasant contour or loudness effect, awesome on bass, and the P15 has tone capability for this. Ballsy clip!
    N° 1 could the the REDDI because that sort of organic warm feel but I never auditioned one, so...
    n° 2 seems the flattest of the 3, so I say direct to console tone.
  14. Mad respect to @10cc for doing this!

    Can't wait to get home to listen to these.

    Based on what I'm familiar with at church, where we have a REDDI, I'm gonna guess that #3 is the REDDI.
