hahah nice one
While I'm here, NNGD
A little bit of a necrobump but I've been thinking of picking one of these up. The thing is my bass already has a DG Tone Capsule so I'm wondering if I'm better of going with an Omicron instead and forgoing the tone controls.
If you don't need the eq then go Omicron
Yeah I'm assuming the DG TC should be able to make up for not having the EQ.
I believe the AO's Bass @ 80 Mids @ 500 and Treble @ 5k and the TC's Bass @70, Mids @ 500 and High mids @ 2.8k or something, not a huge difference!
there's gonna be some difference, the AO eq is post distortion, the TC gonna act as a pre dist EQ
This might be a ridiculously stupid question, but for someone who records bass -> Scarlet Focusrite -> VSTs, would these pedals be a good investment to add before the Focusrite?
Yeah I figured there would be some difference especially due to this fact. I just don't know if it is a large enough difference to warrant going with the Omega over the Omicron.
In reality I'll probably wait so long thinking about it that the AO's will start hitting the used market.
If you dig how it sounds then yes
Thanks for the reply and thanks for enabling my GAS. Yeah those pedals sound really good to me
Sweet pictures, even sweeter sound
Not having the EQ will take away a fair amount of tone shaping.
Yeah...ultimately I'll probably just wait for the AO's to come down in price on the used market as I don't have an urgent need for it.
I know im bumping an old thread but I'd be flogged for starting a new one.
Played with my buddy's AO and its great. I can easily dial in a decent tone via my eleven rack for recording bass. I was considering other options for versatility and the B7k ultra has caught my eye so I considered purchasing both. At that point, I could find a microtubes 500 for the cost of those two pedals and I was wondering if, for recording purposes only, that preamp would serve me better than two pedals. Not satisfied with the eleven rack's bass capabilities by itself so I definitely need something to supplement.
Your dropbox link wasn't working anymore as I realize its a few months old but the youtube video sounded pretty ace.
DG has recently released the A/O Ultra. It has graphic EQ for more control of the midrange, but (more importantly IMO) the DI output now has a built in speaker sim with the ability to load custom cab IRs.
If I was looking for a preamp/DI for recording that's what I'd be looking at.
