    Can someone fill me in on how to run the RBI with the SVT 3 Pro and NOT bypass all the eq knobs and sliders? I want to get the most of my tone from the SVT, then blend in a little dirt and grit and overdrive with the blend knob on the RBI. Has anyone done this before? This IS possible, right?
     
  2. put the RBI in the effects loop of the svt

    All right, I'll give that a shot.

    And doing that shouldn't give me any squeal or hiss, right?

    Cool, I'll try it as soon as I get my RBI in. I'm surprised other people don't run this setup..

    I run the RBI into the FX loop of my DB680 and like it a lot. There are enough options on the RBI to get it to function really well in an FX loop and I love not running a ton of cords and pedals up to the front of the stage.
     
  8. I plug my bass directly into the RBI then run a line out to the input of the 3-Pro.

    I didn't care for how it sounded through the effects loop.

    Would the same go for the Sansamp Portable Bass DI Driver?

    I have the SVT 3 Pro and was wondering the best way to hook it up
