Hello.
This combi is for splitting the bass into two bands and applying saturation separately on thel lower and upper band. I use it because 80% of my basses are bass guitars (real or plugin) and I need to saturate the upper band in order to give it more presence and to make it perceptible on small speakers and mobile phones. I use Scream 4's Tape distortion setting but with little wiring you can replace Scream 4 with any device you like, although the "Body" and "Body Reso" knob and button won't make sense anymore.

The default settings are what I use all the time almost without touching the knobs.

I am sure all the above can be achieved in better ways and maybe with even less stock devices, but it's what i use very often and I get decent results. Pretty lightweight on the cpu also.

Here's the dowload link. I hope you may find it useful, have a nice day!

Nice one. Downloaded :thumbup:

I'm working on a track with emulated bass guitar. Do you use this before or after the amp?

It depends a lot on the track and the context. Generally I put it before the amp, sometimes after, sometimes I don't put the amp at all! Thank you for downloading :thumbup:

Thanks for the combi and your reply. I'm going to try it out tonight. The track is an eighties inspired mix of symphonic/progrock/new wave :puf_wink:
