Got 2 basic questions to kick-off, but hope to make this thread into a knowledge base/owner’s club kind of deal.
Almost about to pull the plug on a couple of these, for a couple of reasons.
I’m reading a few good reviews that the HB’s actually sound “better” that Headrush, flatter and less hyped in lows and high. But mainly, because the HB’d have built int speaker cab sims. Now, I don’t expect these to blow my mind, but for my setup it is not a deal breaker. In fact, it will save me some cab IR processing power on the QC that I dearly need.
So my two kick-off questions are…
With speaker sim turned on, will the XLR out to the main PA also inherit the speaker sim, or is it pass-through? This is the ultimate deal breaker for me right now
How does one of these fair as a Bass FRFR? Can it keep up with drum set in a small gig/rehearsal space?
For reference, will be doing a power-duo, where the guitar will do stereo chain + another independent chain for bass using octave down + effects
Hope to hear your thoughts!
