Tech 21 BDDI and 3Leaf Audio Enabler

    One big one is that the BDDI is specifically designed to emulate the sound of a miked SVT, while the Enabler is (IIRC) not an amp simulator.
  3. Thanks! Does the Enabler sound good? Cant seem to find many clips on it...
  4. It sounds great! super clean and accurate
    though it has a gain knob, it doesn't over drive, I think it's strictly for headroom

    headphone amp is crystal clear with tons of headroom

    bongomania nailed it, the amp sim is the biggest difference
    another big difference is no mid suck with The Enabler (way better EQ on the Enabler imo)
    but I like the 'drive' feature of the BDDI

    The Enabler DI imo, is cleaner

    BDDI can be phantom powered or battery powered,
    The Enabler needs at least 9V power ... can use 12V (no battery, no phantom)
  5. Thanks a ton!
