  1. Sell me your Tone Hammer! 👀

  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  3. I've read a lot of opinions about sending a preamp into a preamp (not including the preamp within the amp) and gain stages, issues with noise floors etc. Like I said I know there are no rules and it's about preference but I wanted to see what people thought.
  4. So it seems I have had foldover distortion on a lot of my patches due to the sum of the 4 VOLUME sliders being greater than 127, or the saw + sq. + tri in once VCO was greater than 127. but I tried reducing these numbers and adjusting volume to eliminate foldover distortion and I can't say I hear a whole lot of difference to be honest? i was expecting things to sound cleaner?
  5. What I love about this pedal is that every time I turn it on, or open the editor, or engage in this kind of discussion, I learn so much! While I've made a ton of really great sounds from scratch, there are still large sections of the interface I do not fully understand. Thanks again for the info, I feel like this is going to be very useful. I'm going to spend some serious time this evening looking into what you've said and reading the manual more as I clearly need to!
  6. I see, thank you very much!
  7. Hi! Got any general advice for setting volume? I've been reading a bit about VCF LIN and VCF LOG and what's going on there (there was only one VCF volume on the old software I believe) and I'm finding that setting the LIN lower and the LOG higher gives slightly more warmth to the sound generally? I'm not sure if this is true but it seems to sound better with the LIN lower. At this point a lot of it is trial and error in terms of setting the volume on each VCO, in the VCF input section (synth) and the LIN and LOG settings.
  8. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with running active basses into preamp pedals (for EQ purposes, not talking using things like Darkglass pedals for drive, I know that's amazing from experience!) I've always found having some form of EQ (used to own a GE-7B) on my board to be really helpful even though both of my basses are active (MM Stingray 4, Ibanez ATK-305) and I've been really interested in getting the Aguilar Tone Hammer or something similar for some more sound sculpting options but I'm undecided if it's 100% necessary. I know it's all about taste and there's no right or wrong way a lot of the time but I thought I'd see what people's thoughts were first. Cheers!
  9. Amazing drive pedal, bought new in 2016. Works great with guitar, bass, synth, just about anything. Use of Tone and Filter controls in conjunction allow plenty of low end through for bass. Capable of subtle drive to all-out fuzz. Expression pedal input allows you to control the Filter for some useful filter sweep/wah-like effects. Comes with box. Price includes postage.
  10. Mate first of all you've got no idea how much I personally play my basses, so I'm not sure what the need for snide comments like that are implying I'm sat looking at them rather than playing.... Secondly, this is not about comparison, I'm not interested in whether you've never thought about it, good for you I suppose! Another example would be how most people I know have pedalboards that are trashed and filled with dust and dirt and they don't care, but I like mine clean, tidy and laid out a certain way and that's just my preference, I'm not interested in what others do or prefer, I've simply come here asking if it's possible to achieve a certain outcome and if not, then no big deal! I'm not losing sleep over it, just asking for advice...
  11. Well good for all those other people who aren't worried about it lol, personally don't want my bass looking messy and I think misaligned silks look awful, so if I can get them to line up again then I will. If not, I'll just buy a set with no silks. Not a huge deal, just trying to get some advice.
  12. It's more or less level lol.. I tried putting on a set today and none of them were even within 1cm of each other. Just looked completely stupid.
  13. So you're telling me that I could trim off 1 inch or 2 and the silk would end at the exact same point...?
  14. The old set here are all different lengths, meaning they've 100% been trimmed down with wire cutters, as you would normally do with any set of strings. They've not unravelled or anything. They were on my bass for nearly 4 years.
  15. I did say in the original post that each string had been trimmed to a specific length: "I would believe this, except my old set were all aligned perfectly and each string had been trimmed to fit." I find it hard to believe that these strings (and the G string) just happened to line up by chance...
