Back when I recorded a lot I did use a sansamp quite often....on all sorts of things including keys and vocals. Its quite a good tone shaper....so Im not knocking it as a Helix block. I do have to say...2.8 is pretty cool. Love the tweed models...I was surprised how much I liked the Revv...and the Zendrive...and the POT..... and I think Ill use the "return" function in snapshots.

They’re kinda seen as a “fixer” pedal. They make crap gear sound good, and make great gear sound good if you catch my meaning.
The BDDI is super scooped and to get mids back in you have to blend clean back in which sounds a bit stupid and is very fiddly to get right. Most people have moved on from it to things that actually let you tailor your mid range, which is very important to bass (midrange being between 100hz to 1.2k for bass).
Seems really stupid when it was meant to be an approximation of an SVT and 810 when there’s an incredible model of just that thing right there in the box that will sound infinitely better.

Shit I've been doing it wrong. Forget overdrive for dirtying up a p-bass. Treble booster is where its at. Rangemaster (Deranged master) on the helix is the tone I've been searching for that grungy classic rock vibe with great attack.

I got the Free The Tone Bass Blaster Overdrive and there's no looking back The only reason I can think of about their lack of Hype is maybe MIJ equals too pricey
