Orange Bass Butler Pre

Looks like fun!

I presume that the 'amp' output is a blend of the two channels, or they can be sent separately.

I wonder what the expression pedal affects.

The blend, I would guess. I also would guess that clean and dirty are XLR outputs.

Not based on anything other than common sense, and the assumption that the guys at Orange are blessed with enough of it!

I'd love to know a bit more about this pedal, not least given the reference to square and sine waves (is this also a synth?) but intel on the net seems to be decidedly sparse - to the extent there's nothing on the Orange website itself!

No, someone on Talkbass found it lurking in an secured folder on Orange’s website!

The square wave is simply the dirty channel. Volume, treble, mid, bass, and gain.

The sine represents the clean channel. Volume, treble, bass, and compression.

Last year Morgan Nicholls (Senseless Things, Vent, Gorillaz...) posted this photo, and soundclip, of a prototype 2 channel pedal.

Looks to be the same deal. It sounded great...

That looks interesting. Two foot switches would be better. 

Switchable channels isn't what this is about though.

I can see that but it would useful to have the choice.

Demo's finally up!

 

 

 

I'm intrigued.  The concept is right up my street. Most of the tones on offer here are way OTT for my needs but the sound at 1:30 is very promising.

Thomann has this on sale for €379 or £322. At that kind of price, it's going up against the EBS Microbass 3, which has a similar spec and layout, but also has headphone out and aux in for quiet practicing. The EBS doesn't have separate clean/dirty channels, but it does offer separate inputs (for Rick-O-Sound fans), and the option of stereo FX return to stereo DI outs.

Orange are dreaming at that price... That's a fair chunk more expensive than the Darkglass X7 and the Tech21 dUg pedals that have similar feature sets (give or take). Almost into HX Stomp territory.

Doomed to fail I'm afraid...

Cool. I like how you sounds and the expression pedal option is handy.  Price is a touch salty for my taste unfortunately.

Not a fan from that I’ve heard so far. The drive sounds rather fizzy to me and not a patch on Darkglass or Tech21.

Another comedy demo but better tones on display than the Slipknot one. At least they twiddle the knobs a bit in this one.

 

 

Why can't they just demo the pedal without all the nonsense?

That sounds so enticing.  But it does seem very expensive for what it is.
