I don't know what to do: All my bass plugins sound awfull in reaper (I have a lenovo laptop). I've tried dozens of bass plugins and they sound, wel... crap. I recently downloaded Ample bass P Lite II, it sounded great on a youtube tutorial but on my laptop it sounds awfull. I spent hours trying to fix it, but I'm no daw wizzkid (i'm a historian...). Is it my hardware? Can someone please please help me? I'll mow your lawn.
SOLD: Vanderkley Aurora Amp.
I purchased the amp some years ago directly from Marc Vanderkley. Condition is almost like new, I am nearly paranoid in taking care of my stuff. No dings, dongs, scratches etc. See the pictures…
The amp is working 100% reliable since day 1, (like everything I ever had from Marc Vanderkley, got almost the whole product line, I am a fan and friend almost from the first days on…).
The amp comes with the orginal case (the case does have some signs of wear as you can see from the pictures) and the original accessoires (manual, rack-ears, Headphone-adapter, powercable).
Extremely quiet fan, endless power and clearity. Unfortunately the amp has been discontinued and is rather hard to find these days.
Location is near Bonn / Cologne in Germany. The amp can be tested here, coffee and beer available, of course 😉

I absolutely love the sound of this thing, but I've just got hold of a VT Bass DI (same sound but not programmable, and it's a smaller box so leaves space for other fun things on my pedal board), so this is surplus to requirements. It's programmable, with 2 banks of 3 programs, and has 2 available inputs (so it's perfect if you have 2 basses with different sounds or volumes).
I didn't realise how lacking my DI sound was until I used one of these! It really does breathe life into the sound.
It's in good condition, with a few minor scratches and marks, most notably on the edge of the XLR mounting plate. Sorry about the rubbish pictures - these were taken from the eBay listing which is where I purchased it from originally. I'll update photos when I get a chance to pick up my pedal board from my band's storage place.
Price includes postage within the UK.

Hi . I've got a RMI Aurora NW7BPX 7 strings bass for sale 850£ ono
It's a beautiful instrument and plays very well. The Delano electronics are excellent, providing a very clear sound I think, with many different combinations/tonal possibilities. The extended register allows you to play bass lines, chords, leads or solos that sound nice, clear and full all over the neck.
The neck is wide, as expected on a 7 string but still, comfortable to play. It's in excellent condition, with very few small marks on the body.
