There has been a Multiamp available for around a month for guitar (apparently) but now there is this bass version... a preamp/effects processor AND a power amp... interesting!

I thought that too.... There are a lot of players out there using LMIIs (including me) who might be interested in switching to this BUT.......
I use a 4ohm cab to get the full 500W so as interesting as this looks, it would be too underpowered for me unless there is a 4ohm bridged mode.

I think it looks ace.

I reckon there will be a more powerful one in the pipeline. Can't see why there wouldn't be.

Having said that, with 2 8ohm cabs it is still 300watts, which would do me

I think you're making assumptions on how loud this'll go based on the wattage?

That could be why TCE led people to believe that their amps put out @ 500w so they didn't jump to conclusions. :)

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Just spotted this thread. I will have one of these babies to play with in the next week or so, so I will be doing a mini review as soon as I can.[/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]I've been told by MSL that regarding power, the figures quoted above were pre-release. It is apparently officially as follows:-[/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Mono version Same as LMIII [color=#020202][email protected] / [email protected][/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Stereo version Same as 2 x LMIII - [color=#020202][email protected] ohm | [email protected], but can also be bridged to give[/color][color=#020202] [email protected][/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#020202]So that doesn't quite address all of us who have a pair of 8 ohm cabs, but then 2 x 300 watts in the MB world, as we all know, is still probably gonna be hoofin'[/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#020202]I'm certainly looking forward to pissing my guitarist off by putting a cab on "his" side of the stage![/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#020202]I'll update when I've had a play!![/color][/font][/size]

Fair bit less than an AxeFx thoug, and you get a power-amp built in unlike that and the Kemper et al.

I guess it'll come down to how good the amp models are, but whilst analogue and valves are in no danger of dying, this does seem to be the direction the industry is going in.

Anyone got any more info/videos/manuals on this ? Had a quick look - not too much out there.

No worries!

Trust me, this is no Line 6 alternative! I've not yet seen the Bass multiamp, but I have seen the guitar one, and I think it gives the likes of Avid Eleven, AxeFX, Kempner a run for the money...

Bump - anyone shed any light ?!!!!

I'm feeling a little less than convinced about this product judging from the lack of online reference material from[i] any[/i] sources (or a manual), I'd have thought MB would have done more to push this 10 months on.

Maybe they've got cold feet or the next NAMM is about to drop something else...?

Urban Karma (Bryn) demoed one of these at the South East Bass Bash last month and it was pretty impressive!

Some very cool sounds, but very useable too..

I'd suggest you send him a PM to get more info.

Yes I had a good go on it there - way too much on it for my needs but the sound of this thing through a 1x12 Markbass cab was amazing.

I feel MarkBass are missing a trick by doing a separate bass and separate guitar versions when the likes of Kemper and Fractal are not limiting themselves to one side of the fence or other. As the Dragons would say, for that reason, I'm out :)

I thought this sounded really nice through that MB 1x12. Had a quick play and it was fun.

A lot less impressed when I heard it through a 'competitive' speaker brand (I won't name which or the flame-crew will be out very quickly, lol).

Could be that it needs 'fine tuning' to match different cab setups though.

Does it rhyme with "air-laced"? :lol:
