    I use the suggested "ROBERT TRUJILLO / OZZY OSBOURNE IN-LINE SETTINGS" as stated in the manual.

    It's hard to tell without knowing what kind of bass you have. Also, my eq settings on it change quite often depending one what I need to record, As far as distortion, I highly recommend you don't have blend past half way same for the gain or it just sounds like crap.


    I find 2/3 bass 1/2 mid 1/2 treble with color switch on to be quite nice.

    I have Ibanez Roadstar II, simply p-style pickups.
    I use 12'o clock setting on amp.

    I play random music, just for fun, from classic rock to industrial cuz now i'm not in band.

    What kind of sound are you trying to get. really only 3 knobs (all labeled clearly) and that fun switch. I wouldn't even both with the distortion really.

    Is that a distorted sound?

    For distortion I've it set at:

    Treb: 7/8 o'c
    Mid: 5 o'c
    Bass: 3/4 o'c

    Blend: 12/1 o'c
    Distort: 2 o'c

    Rarely use it clean since I got a VT.

    The EQ I leave flat and then adjust to taste depending on the room and what the sound guy wants. On the distortion I put the blend between 10:00 and 11:00 and the gain between 08:00 for light grind to 2:00 for fuzz.

    What does the manual mean by “IN-LINE SETTINGS” ? Does that mean it’s not the DI but just a pedal on the board ?
