    I'm liking this particular sound Devin Townsend coaxed out of the Source Audio Multiwave Bass Distortion, but I haven't yet been able to replicate it with mine. Since there isn't really a clear shot of his settings, does anyone have any hints to help me find this sound? You can kind of see which of the presets he's on, but not clearly.

    I suppose he's using a Zon or Warwick, but honestly I don't think that should matter much in light of just how radical this pedal changes the sound of the dry signal coming in.

    He's definitely going through some other dirt. The multiwave (at least in my experience) isn't that aggressive sounding, so methinks one of the Darkglass pedals is part of this sound. When I had one, the multiwave was great paired with one or more dirt pedals.

    Yeah, he's got the distortion mix on the Multiwave dimed and his Vintage Deluxe looks like its engaged. I can get a similar edgy distortion running my AfterShock into the Multiwave but the AfterShock is doing the heavy lifting for that type of distortion.

    Thanks. I'll throw some hair in front of it and see what I can come up with.
