I'm not sure if this is the best place, but I'm taking a stab. I just tried to record with my Sansamp BDDI last night. I ran the bass into the input, the 1/4" direct out to the board, the parallel output to the input of my Demeter pre. The direct out of the demeter went into a separate channel of the board. I recorded the 2 tracks simultaneously. The intent was to get a clean direct sound (easy with the Demeter) and blend in the Sansamp for a bit of wool. Now the question. I was playing with the phase of the Sansamp signal and noticed that it got a lot louder (on playback) when I reversed the phase. Am I somehow going into the board out of phase by the setup I'm using? This seems like the exact intent of the parallel out. You could do the same to have just your rig for stage sound, but if it's out of phase with the signal to the house, that can't be good for your tone. Any input ????
