Kind of a deafening silence isn't it?
That other thread turning into 10cc ponying up on a REDDI and making this thread is the coolest thing I've seen on TalkBass, ever!
I was fortunate to get to help 10cc with this, and totally went into it with an open mind, and no preconceived opinion. As far as the tracks go, I like DI4 the best, and greatly prefer the P-15 on everything we've done. It sounds almost like a tube amp with a mic'd cab to me. And the fact that you can eq it is icing on the cake.
My favorite is DI4. Fun thread! Now I got a REDDI to sell.
I'd get it from you, but, you know.... P-15
That thread was a shame, I'm glad the mods closed.
But...I don't want to speak against anyone. I hope, actually, that that guy will chime in, bringing his contribution, and, if it's the case, changing his positions. This is what I would do, but I'm the rock that stops the ocean' s waves...
Anyway, back to topic!
This damn black box called broughton really shines in recordings.
it's only minus is that it's an artisan made unit, with no support or service in countries other than USA.
Spending that much, just like a reddi in fact (unit + shipping + import duties) is a bit tricky for europeans.
I have to think a bit on this
Could be a tough spot for an endorser.(?)
Again, great job on the clips. After giving everything a few more listens I have come to this conclusion: I'd be happy with the way my bass tracked in any of them. The biggest surprise to me was how phat the bottom end is on that Korg.
I suspected that #3 was either the Broughton or the Korg with some EQ tweaking. It sounded a bit too enhanced to be the REDDI to me. I'm glad you gave us #4 as a direct comparison.
Those threads are part of the reason a lot of us never venture out of the effects section. People who have no clue what they are talking about start using buzzwords to try to justify their opinions. Always talking about how big transformers are when they have no idea what transformers are being used in competing products. A bunch of people pretending they are engineers. Same crowd that believes that tube amps need to weigh 85 pounds.
Well, I got one out of three, namely D1 as the machine, and the one I liked the most.
Whew...I'm glad DI3 & 4 were the P15 on account of I've got one of the latest batch coming very soon.
No buyer's remorse here.
Well worn P bass on a pickup truck tailgate with some fine gear sitting on it. Great pic.
I was wondering what that was.
Well, I certainly got it wrong, thinking that #3 was the Reddi. That P-15 sounded really, REALLY good.
All things considered, I still like what the REDDI does and I still want my own. I have a thing with an interface having tone controls, kinda puts it more in the "preamp" category in my mind (feeble as it may be...), which is totally cool and the results are certainly awesome with the P-15. In fact, the REDDI is pushing it with the volume control, but I can deal with that.
So anyone selling a REDDI, you know how to reach me!
I loved t comment about UL listing. You don't care til you house burns down or something. JB is an engineer people. Not some guy playing with components to get weird fuzz sounds lol
I myself was also suprised with DI1 (straight into Korg). Now that the cats out of the bag I'll probably go ahead and at some time upload two more. One being the direct out on an Arkham Zephyr and my Radial JDI in speaker mode coming off of my 810 cab / SVT CL.
Great....the game has only begun...
Thanks 10 cc
Haha. That's "Big D" my truck.
Listen to this great bass playing! Have no clue who it is, but I have read somewhere Waylon had some of "The Kings" players on this one. Cedartown Georgia!
I am VERY interested in hearing both.
I also have access to a great studio in Athens Ga where I do believe the owner has on order TWO P-15's headed his way along with a 68 Ampeg B-15 that's in the studio now. I'd like to record a direct feed to the console from the P-15 and a miked B-15 signal. Then post the two of them here for everyone's curiosity.
