    Who's using one?
    Are you happy with your tone?
    Which one is it?
    How are you routing it?

    I REALLY want to go this route but haven't found anything I love. Who's doing what? (Feel free to direct me to the thread I'm missing).

    HX Stomp.
    Bass -> LBA 2020S -> HX Stomp -> FOH
  4. I'm still using my Zoom B2 or B2.1u or B3 depending on the gig.
  5. I use a line 6 Helix hx fx and love it

  6. GT-1B. Line6 wireless> GT1B> Radial SB2> Peavey Alphabass or Quilter BB800.

    I use a dual switch to page up and down my patches and then the 4 footswitches to control the patch. I use the preamps as always on, and then switch on and off what I need within each patch.

    My classic rock gig doesn't require me to find a bunch of 'my' sounds, and this unit is flexible enough at my feet and with good enough sounds that I don't need parallel processing or nigh-infinite blocks.

    I was using a B3 prior, but the GT-1B works quite a bit better after taking the time to sort out all its control options.

    A big part of my liking multis is I see tone as a moving target (it's easy to fall in love with a sound and then get jaded by it and move on to the next, get jaded again and then re-fall in love with the first), so having a thing that can adapt to my needs and whims is more important than having that one perfect thing that I'll get bored of over time.
  7. Bass>Line6 G30>Line6 HX Stomp>Ashdown OriginAL. I use IEM 99% of the time.

    The HX Stomp has replaced my tuner, HPF, overdrive, fuzz, octaver and chorus. Plus, now I have some reverb or delay and many other effects. It needs time, but once you have your presets done, you know exactly how you will sound.

    The Boss MS-3 replaced quite a few pedals. Now it’s a essential part of my pedalboard. I’m very happy with it.

    Line6 HD500x (with HD Bass pack) into Effects Return. Sounds good to me, and no complaints from the band.

  12. I still use a Zoom B3, with a couple other pedals, but I could (and have) play a show with just the B3.

    Zoom B3n, happy with it. If it’s a gig with simple always on requirements I take zoom ms60b.

    Helix is the most natural(analog?) sounding effects unit I have ever heard. I am running the HX Stomp alone to FOH.
  15. P Bass > GT1KCore > Q/Strip - XLR > Mixer/FOH, 1/4 > Amp/InEars. Totally happy with this setup, won’t be changing it anytime soon.

    Line 6 M5 (not technically a multi, but kinda) and I use it for a little dirt and fuzz. It also has a great chorus. Since most of what I play isn't effect heavy, it works great for my needs.

    Bass to Boss GT-1B to my GK combo, for small fusion instrumentals gig.
    I use GT-1B as a pedalboard (no amp/cab sims), I have couple of patches I can flip. One is general, for clean sound or chorus and so on. Second and third are synths with different flavours.

    Axe FX II XL in the power section of an Ampeg SVT 7 Pro. Very happy with it, however I might go back to a single amp as it could be a bit overkill for me. However, you have everything in a box: compressor, drive, filter.....
    No more cables, noise, issues, surprises.....

    Source Audio C4, set up with various staple sounds, like phaser, octaver, univibe, synths, swells, envelop followers, etc. Once the output levels are dialed-in, it’s a superstar.

    I’m running it first on my board, with the comp after it, in order to better control the attack. I’m accessing all my presets via a midi switch (D.M.C. micro).
