A FEW TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR SOUND
1) As a rule, the less gain you use the tighter and more defined your low end will sound and feel.
2) There should be a reasonably balance between the channel volume controls and the main master volume knob. This means, for example, you should not have all the individual channel volumes cranked way up and have the main volume control just “barely cracked open” or viceversa. Find a sensible balance between the volume knobs so you can make volume adjustments easily.
3) Use the master DENSITY and PRESENCE controls sparingly. Too much presence boost will tend to sound shrill and offensive to listeners directly in front of your speakers. Your tone will also tend to be excessively bright when mic’d through a PA. Too much DENSITY boost can make your low end overbearing. This is hard on your speakers. This may cause excessive speaker breakup / distortion that could lead to premature speaker burnout. Excessive DENSITY boost will also upset your bass player, which may be good or bad thing....
