    Hey all, first post...hello! I've played guitar for 20 years and have recently been playing a lot of bass in my band.

    Just got a spectracomp, haven't really had a chance to play it, but I'm seeing certain toneprints (like the lowender) that I cannot access from the site, that do not show up in the app or the editor, via errors on the page. Where can I find them?

    Also, playing a ray 34 (just got this too and have had no time to play it), a lowdown 750, ampeg hlf 410, sansamp bass driver, darkglass b3k, and the ehx silencer...what toneprint goes best with this setup in yall's opinion? I play metal.

    I use a Spectracomp with a bass driver/fuzz pedal as well. I've found it to be a really powerful pedal; alittle goes a long way! I've been using the Rockateer set about about 9 O'Clock. Seems to smooth things out while live without sucking too much dynamics, so the OD/fuzz pedals aren't just a brick wall of sounds and keep a little nuance. I play garage rock/indie rock, so not as heavy as metal. If you want to set the compressor to STUN, I bet that'd sound good with heavier guitars! And also help smooth out the on/off volume difference between pedals. I like keeping the dynamics (though so much of your dynamics are controlled by the old Right Hand Mk. I.
