combo is my "go-to" Elop
if I have a decent player and just want the thick. 1176
if I need dirt and more edge to the sound.
DVC -> Distressor
if I am doing direct and feeling lazy. This tends to get re-cut in most cases. The low-end on the DVC is kinda weak to my ears. I always end up bumping the eq a little on it.
These setups usually get me where I am going.
My buddy had a VIPRE for a while and it did bass like it was already going through the La2a
. Super thick. I think ITB compresssion would work if I had one of these.
However, that was the only trick it did that impressed me.
