...is it that whenever I set it up through the effects loop it sucks the tone out of the bass. But when I go direct into it and then out into the input jack...WOW!!! It REALLY makes the sound come alive. Some people say it's just an EQ. Well, if it is, it's the most amazing (and silent) EQ I've ever used. But I don't want to debate its merits. I want to understand this oddity. Has anyone else noticed this?
