Nice cable! I need to get one of those.
Thanks! PM me to let me know what you are looking for.
So I tried something new today for worship. I used my laptop and the neural DSP darkglass suite. I play an Alleva LG 5 string and went into my scarlet solo interface into the plugin then out the interface to my noble then to front of house. This was uncharted territory for me (I tested everything at Thursday’s rehearsal) and I have to say it turned out great! Well, from what I could hear in my ears and some of the feedback from the sound guys/other musicians. The ease of use in the program is super simple. I think I’m going to continue to use it as my main rig and next I’ll test the parallax DSP. I also included a pic of my normal rig and I will say the only thing I’d want is the tuner in front of my signal chain going the laptop route. The gate inside of the program was amazing and kept me quite when I wasn’t playing.
Anyone else out there use something similar? It’s new ground so any tips you all might have? I have one, make sure your notifications are muted.
I debated a set up like this. Run my bass and synth via MainStage on a MacBook. I was close, and maybe for “studio” I might, but I ended up getting a Yamaha MODX6 for my synth needs and keeping the REDDI as my DI.
My keyboard guy uses MainStGe and it’s awesome. I guess I’m just not ready to take that leap, and I have my custom cabling from Dave all set for a synth/bass DI and wired IEM’s so....
I have stuff in the mail still...but this is looking like the final product for now

My Post Recovery board!
Forgot to take a picture at church, but here is my board that I used today. I am loving the sounds that I can get. I have been getting compliments from the sound guy and WL on my tone.
My first time back in 50 weeks. Main campus. Saturday live streaming and Sunday 9 & 11am live service. God is good.
This was my setup for tonight. I’ve never had better tone.
And my requisite shoes/bass/pedalboard shot from this morning:
Shoes, Bass, Pedalboard.
It’s our version of Wallet, Keys, Phone.
I like your bass, what year is it?
This is my current set up. But looking to upgrade. Any suggestions for a new preamp and compressor? My cheap DI box went out yesterday so I’m in the market for one too. Also, it was recommended that I add a hpf so any recommendations for that would be awesome as well.
Thanks! It is a 2020
You're really asking for it, here. It's really fun spending other people's money. So here we go!
As for preamps, the world is your oyster. If you want clean, there are some good . . . but boring . . . options. If you want lovely tube warmth the likes of which will shatter windows at your church, get a Broughton SSDI. You'll be done upgrading your preamp . . . forever. It's expensive, but totally worth it.
As for compressor, I never realized how personal of a choice it can be until I spent some time in the "testing compressors" thread and tried a few different kinds for myself. But there really are differences between different types of compressors (optical, VCA, etc), and it really depends on what you want out of your compressor and how much you're willing to spend. If you like the MXR bass comp, it's a good one. It's good enough for Marcus Miller at least. But if you want to add some color to your comp, pick up an optical compressor. The Doc Lloyd Photon Death Ray is my favorite thus far for optical (at least semi-affordable optical). Or something like the CaliCB adds a little bit of color and works absolutely fantastically. My current favorite is the Empress Bass Comp, which doesn't add color unless you flip the "colour" switch, and is an awesome, versatile comp. There are a lot of great options out there for compressors these days. Hit the "testing compressors" thread for more than you'd ever want to know about compressors.
As for HPF, Broughton is the HPF king. And it really does make a huge difference. By cutting the uber deep sub lows from your signal, you can actually get more perceived low end out of your signal, and it makes your amp more efficient. I can't recommend that highly enough. Either just a HPF or his HPF/LPF.
For DI's, the SSDI has a DI out on it. But some awesome, realatively affordable stand alone ones are the Telefunken TDP, Lightning Boy, or Neve RNDI. Or there's the every-faithful Radial JDI. There's also a DI thread around here, I'm sure.
I have to unsubscribe from this thread. I am totally fine with my "pedal board" and everyone loves my sound. I can't put my DI (REDDI) on a board anyway.
If you like clean, the Tech 21 Q\Strip has a 4 band EQ with 2 sweepable mids, LPF, HPF, and a DI. I've been using the Seymour Duncan Studio Bass with no complaints.
Anyone running an HX Stomp? I’ve got one on the way and I was looking for some tips.
