sansamp bass driver distortion setting

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by nrs7six, Sep 18, 2008.

  1. Hey all, i have just got hold of the programmable version of the bddi. Has anyone got any suggestions for heavy distortion (not fuzz) settings? Also, any setings with a nice grind to them. Cannot get the distortion to sound to my liking! loving the pedal otherwise though.

    Cheers all!

    I got a really nice grindy sound when i started from the "yes" preset, and moddified it from there! The presets are a good place to start from theres a distortion preset as well.
    Took me a good few hours to get to grips with mine properly (damn good fun)

    The (P)BBDI doesn't do heavy distortion, it's a tube emulation preamp/DI. You'll have to look to other pedals for the heavy stuff.
  4. Hey, thanks but what is the 'yes' preset? It's not on my list unless it's under a different name.
  5. Oh, ok. I'm sure i've seen posts on here saying that people get really nice distortion out of it?
  6. you can get a nice grind outta it.

    I pretty much worked with the "SVT" setting and editted it to be drivey. i think - bass at 1, treble 11 - drive at like 2/3, presence - bout 1/2 and blended full.

    I think.

    I didnt use it for hardcore distortion (got a guv'nor for that purpose) - but i did add some dirt to my clean tone.

    I have one. No, it is not a {heavy} overdrive/distortion box. I tried several times, but no good.
