Anybody else feel that it;s a great pedal that suffers a bit from having to hot a level knob?
Probably to make up for the wide varieties of bass pickups and preamps out there. I find that this is commonplace a lot more on bass pedals for this reason than guitar pedals.
Any tips on mitigating the effect?
ya just gotta play with it alot.
i own the xxlb... it's a little crazy sometimes... it gets loud and screamy and loud and loud and piercingly loud and screamy....
but it sounds amazing.
so i tweak the warp (usually between nothing and the little arrow thingies), keep the level around... 8:30-9:30, the drive is actually off most of the time... (it's important to remember that the drive does not boost the level...), and the tone i keep at about 8:00 to 10:00.
it's the only effect i use that usually has all the knobs down close to "0."
but it works.
Cool, I'll take some more time with it tonight.
When I had mine it was always too loud or too quiet, and switching between basses just made it worse. Somewhere around 10:17 was the perfect level, which of course was nearly always impossible to find.
