2-Channel Bass Preamp
2-channel bass preamp/DI pedal with full independent EQ strips on each channel. So, you can dial in two different EQ settings for your bass, and select either EQ with the onboard channel footswitch. Also, you can use two basses, or a bass with stereo/dual outputs, or a bass and a keyboard or any instrument with a pickup. Set the EQ for each bass/instrument, and select it with the footswitch.
Easy On The Fly Adjustments
Hands on functionality with knobs for making adjustments on the gig. No digital settings to edit/program and no trying to see an LED screen on the gig. You can vary EQ and Compressor settings in seconds with top mounted controls just like you would on an amp.
2-Channel Direct Box For Studio & Live
Two XLR DI outputs connect the bass preamp signal to pro/home recording studio interface or live gig mixer. These outputs can be assigned to DUAL mode with each preamp channel having its own dedicated DI output, or to MIXED mode with a single DI output having both preamp channels combined.
Studio Quality Optical Compressor
The onboard optical compressor has adjustable Threshold, Volume (Gain makeup), Release, and selectable ratios 2:1, 4:1, 8:1. It's located at the end of the signal chain for taming signal peaks after EQ processing and effect pedals, and allows for getting the desired amount of compression.
