    I just finally received my RBI after 8 weeks of backorder. It seems like a great unit which I will be using w/ a Carvin DCM1000 amplifier. It did not come with a manual though, I guess somebody at Guitar Center sniped it. I emailed Tech 21 for a manual but I was wondering what people are using for their settings. I play many styles from alt-country to psychadelic rock to pop depending on the gig but generally like to find one great tone for the particular gig and go with it. I'm mostly using a Steve Harris P-bass or a modded Essex fretless P.

    Mine is pretty white bread - I start with Presence at 9 o'clock, Blend at 12 o'clock, Bass at 1 o'clock, Mids at 1 o'clock, and Treble at 10 or 11 o'clock, and lightly tweak from there. "Tweak" is the operative word - a little knob travel goes a l-o-n-g way with an RBI.

    I find that it sounds more overdriven through the FOH then through my cabs, while playing out, so I tweak back the drive a little to accomodate.
