  1. GK Amplification by Audiffied is a great Gallien-Krueger bass amp sim. There is a free version along with a pro version that is rather affordable. I used the free for a long time and was so impressed I invested in the pay version. It still finds its way into my projects to this day.
  2. Having used amp sims and POD type devices for so long now, my advice to you would be to set the amp sim to a setting that you feel is best and if there is something lacking eq wise, insert a simple graphic eq on the output of the sim. Preferably, before you hit any rack type of plugins. My setup is usually any gain type fx first, amp sim next, graphic or parametric eq, then add fx. This seems to be the most natural sounding configuration to my ear. I am not against using the preamp but that to me would be adding something that is going to alter the natural tone of the guitar itself. It is also one more link in the chain that you will spend tweaking on for hours!! It sounds to me like you are less happy with the amp sound than the guitar itself. There should be enough tools in your amp sim or DAW that you can use to get that amp singing. One more thought!! I had the pleasure to be on a session with the legendary Tom Dowd back in the day. There was a particular amp sound that just was not cutting it. The engineer started to grab eq knobs and twist his heart out. Tom smiled and walked to the mixer, disabled the eq on that channel, grabbed a pair of headphones and disappeared in to the recording room. Within a matter of minutes, there was a great guitar sound singing through the monitors. When asked what his secret was, he smiled and replied, " moved the mic". I still to this day try to remember that you should try to fix the problem with as simple an approach as possible.
  3. BTW, yes, you can control every channeling and monitoring aspect of both boxs from the software!!
  4. I have no experience with the Octo but if their control panel is the same, there is a box to check for VS Expand mode. It automatically sets the driver for ASIO mode. Windows does not show the additional ins and outs but they are listed in your DAW control panel.
  5. Have you tried rescanning the plugins? The 64 bit version of DimPro is a vst.
  6. I just checked again and you have to stay on the page for a certain amount of time before the popup appears. 15% off would make it a little over $21.
  7. As I scrolled to the bottom of the page, a popup window appeared that allows you to take 15% off!!!
  8. Low budget winners would be Addictive Keys and Sonivox Eighty-Eight. The Sonivox is pretty CPU hungry depending on how many features are turned on all at once.
  9. You can relocate the libraries to another location and use Kontakt 6 to find the new location. Then you can safely uninstall Kontakt 5. I always install any Kontakt libraries to my sample drive. That way the libraries are more efficient and safe from being uninstalled by mistake. There are a few tutorials to show you how to move the libraries if you need.
  10. As long as your libraries are not installed inside of Kontakt 5, you can remove it with no problems.
  11. I have used nothing but TX for years!! Has been rock solid but there is a very steep GUI learning curve involved. There was a good number tutorial videos on YouTube for it. I highly recommend if you are interested in sculpting instruments from scratch.!!!
  12. I had to use Waldorfs customer support because it had been a week since I got it thru APD. Still had not received the confirmation email with the links and code even though my account was successfully setup. I received an email in a matter of hours and finally got the synths.
