Most orgasmic bass DI setup?
« on: January 12, 2011, 02:33:01 pm »
Any suggestions?  Demeter Tube Direct going into Great River MP-500NV sounds pretty awesome, but I'd like more tools to sculpt the sound.  Manley Vox Box?  How's the D.W. Fearn VT-3?  Little Labs Multi-Z?  I am totally not into mic'd bass amps right now.

the importance of touch for bass sound

is greatly underestimated.


get a GOOD bass player then use anything.

Recently tracked Bass through a Reddi Tube DI into a TSL-3 VAC RAC. Great!

Just so we're clear, you're asking what kind of bass rig is the best for inducing orgasm in female audience members? A good loud one, I would say.

If you want the most orgasmic Direct Input, you need to get the hard bone nut of a mammoth/walrus/40 yr old camel, then have a good guy stick it in for you!!!! Stay away from the long plastic one you use on a nightly basis!!  You will be nice and happy!!!

Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point."  -Alan Watts

You could try a little HEDD...
Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for everyone thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess.

Bass  -  line amp  -  limiter -  ADC.

Maybe not orgasmic, but definitely organic.

Yeah, plus one fer the Woolly Mammoth, it’s absolutely the most insane sounding thing. And since I got my REDDI DI, I don’t feel so bad when I can’t mic my amp. Which is usually the preferred method.

I could see that setup sounding boring if the player is boring.

IME orgasmic tone comes from the player not the little box with wires coming out of it.

The best bass tones I've gotten have been with phenomenal players who knew their listening environment.

Every time I've had to rely on a box of some sort to bridge the tone gap, the results have definitely not been "orgasmic."

Man, it SO depends on the song.

I've had stellar results with a Jazz Bass > B-15.
Or a hollow-body Epiphone directly into an LA2A.
Totally different sounds, but both great for the songs in question.

But it really does all start with the player.
