    Cool Hello Ralf

    I was tremendously surprised by the excellent result achieved with the following "bass channel" pathway :

    > Yamaha bass guitar
    > Behringer DI Box
    > Mackie Analog Mixer 24*8
    > Behringer MDX2200 compressor (with noise gate, comp ratio between 4 and 6, 1 ms Attack time, 500 ms Release time)
    > BOSS SE70 Multi-effect processor (inserted, using stereo output)
    > Mackie MTR MDR 2496

    OK, my bassman is a semi-pro but from a sound engineering point of view you must recognize that the "bass channel" is composed of rather cheap equipment (except the mixer and the MTR).

    Good luck,
