  2. in clockspeak:

    blend at 2
    treble at 10:30
    bass at 11
    drive at 1:30
    presence at 2

    punchy and just on the verge of breakup.

    I go for a slightly grittier tone.

    blend all the way up
    treble and bass around 10:30 or 11:00
    drive around 1:30
    presence at 11:00

    When playing my MIM Jazz (has flats on it), the tone is nice and gritty!;)

    blend at max
    treble at noon
    bass at one o'clock
    drive at one o'clock
    presence at noon

    Nothin' unusual. Just nice, clean, full, modern sound.

    My settings exactly! Too much Presence and Drive produce noise which I don't like.

    blend at 3
    treble at 3
    bass at 2
    drive at 7, 8, 9 depending on what I'm doing
    presence at 1

    That the standard, but I like to play with the thing for different songs.

    A good reason to set blend at max is that only the effected (or affected for grammatical correctness) signal goes to the amp. If you set it somewhere else, part of the clean signal is mixed with the effected signal. There's nothing wrong with that. To set it up, I just switch back and forth between the effect and not, using the level control to get the same volume whether or not the SABDI is in the circuit. That way, I can have two fairly different tones available, just by kicking the SABDDI in or out.

    My settings:

    Blend @ Max
    Treble @ 11:00
    Bass @ 1:00
    Drive @ 1:00
    Presence @ 12:00
  11. i find that with the blend on full, it's a little too compressed for my tastes. it seems like backing off the blend lets more mids through, lets things breathe a little more, but still fills out the tone beautifully.

    blend at 4 o'clock
    treble at 1 o'clock
    bass at 3 o'clock
    drive at 1 o'clock
    pres at 12 o'clock
  13. That settings rocks/ Tubey growl and grind, with bag loads of punch. :bassist:

    Blend 11.5
    Treble 10.5
    Bass 9 or 10.5
    Presence totally down
    Drive 1.5

    (or at least that's what it is with my P bass, it changes with my OLP and ibanez)

    So... Here's the settings i use on my Para Driver DI:

    Level: Depends on the situation (right now at max!)
    Treble: 12 o'clock
    Mid: 3 o'clock
    Shift: 2 o'clock (basically, the mid acts like the pres on the BDDI)
    Bass: 12 o'clock
    Drive: 12 o'clock (sounds pushed, but not driven)
    Blend: 11 o'clock

    Along with the clean blend on my Sparkle Drive I get a fair amount of my origanal bass sound through, with just a nice amount of pick attack.

    I'm constantly fiddling, but the one constant is that I keep the Blend at about 12:00 all the time. I'm not a fan of the tone with the blend all the way up.

    My Tony Levin setting :
    Blend 12 o'clock
    Bass 4 o'clock
    Treble 11 o'clock
    Presence 2 o'clock
    Gain 12 o'clock (actually until it starts bleeding seriously on attacks but doesn't break completely)

    Usually :
    Blend 10 o'clock
    Bass 11 o'clock
    Treble 2 o'clock
    Presence 10 o'clock
    Gain 10 o'clock
