If you own one or not answere the poll please. post what you do or don't like about the RBI
I like the RBI very much, but I wish I could make a few changes to it: XLR level control on the DRY output also. Sweepable bass and mids. maybe a deeper case so when I put it in my 6 space rack with my 350 amp I can get my fat hands to the back of the RBI easily to connect, 8 inches deep instead of 5"
I love mine!
The only feature I wish it had is a defeat switch for my rack tuner.
i ordered mine last friday, don't know when it'll be here though. but once i've given it a test run i'll let you know!
I really liked mine, but got tired of humping my rack. My new Eden is lighter!
I'd buy another RBI in a heartbeat if I needed a rackmount preamp again.
I use mine for recording direct. Beats lugging around amps and cabs. Oh yeah, and it sounds really good too.
I love mine, it's basically the best bang for your buck, from metal to jazz to rock to bossa nova. I can get amazing amount of tones from it. I'd love it to be able to get a lot more overdrive and be able to activate it with a footswitch. But other then that if, I love it, I'll just get a distortion pedal for my rig. It doesn't have a mute switch either but it does have an output for a rack tuner, and most good rack tuners have a mute switch.
just got mine, and i love it! everything from super warm bass with a bit subtle fuzz, to zingy high distortion, to super punch slap, to wall destoying bass and everything in between.
i wasn't expecting a major sound improvement, and as a result this thing totally blew me off my feet. i didn't believe my bass could sound anywhere near as good as it does now. trouble is i now want to get a better bass to help compliment the amp
Would anyone like to share what settings they use? I just had my first rehearsal with my new RBI and had to turn the horns on my cabs right down and set the treble control to 0. Sounded great though.
I use this setting for my rock band.
I don't know why people think you can get really high distortion from it, I bump my Drive all the way to 10 and it still doesn't get the distortion like Justin from Tool has on the song H.
I run a passive G&L SB-1 (hot passives)
Drive = 9-10 o'clock
Presence = 7 (off) I hate finger noise
Blend = 2-3 get some guitar twang instead of boosting mids
Bass = 10-12 with two EA 110's
Mid = 1
treble = 12
When I first got mine I was 5 o'clock blend, but had to boost mids too much playing live to cut through, so I 2 o'clock blend and use slight mids in stead. full blend sounds good at home, but not with the band IMO.
p.s. I don't like the hard distortion of cranked drive, but sometimes I like 12 o'clock drive. for a soft distortion, sometimes helps cut through.
