Use the 4 band semi parametric EQ to sculpt your basic tone. Then apply SpectraComp and/or TubeTone for the finishing touch. Traditional compressors tend to be controlled by the lower strings only, but with multi-band compression, you get even ‘per string’ compression.
Why no one has ever done this before is simply beyond us. Adding an onboard chromatic tuner makes life so much easier for everyone! The tuner is always on, and you can check your tuning state at any point. And when you need to tune up between songs, the built in tuner will get you back and playing in seconds.
Different situations call for different tones. Be it a change of bass, a different song or style or a different venue, you need your amp to be instantly flexible and adapt to your needs.
You can store up to 3 different presets so you can handle whatever music might throw at you. The optional RC4 footswitch allows you to instantly control your presets.
