Re: DI bass and guitar

Also - i tried the stereo cable thing - still NADA. Starting to wonder if part of the circuit or jack is busted :roll:

Re: DI bass and guitar

I'll cut a board to seal the cab - thanks for that. I like having the heads on this side of the glass :) One thing to look out for on various fliptop Ampegs is that they often have some means of keeping the amp in standby if there's no speaker connected. I remember one that had a four-pin XLR to th...

Re: DI bass and guitar

That Ext Amp jack is a bit odd - certainly when seen from the perspective of today, with our TRS "insert points" that are an input and an output hidden on one plug. That Ext Amp isn't one of those. It's just a point in the heart of that circuit between the preamp and power amp. If you plug into it,...

Re: DI bass and guitar

My tech is saying that I only need a stereo cable to connect to the EXT AMP out and then one of the L or R will provide the connection at the other end.

Re: DI bass and guitar

i think mine is early 70's. It's a higher wattage version than the B15n. no dip switches. 2 channels. looks like this: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.reverb.com%2Fimage%2Fupload%2Fs--1hKFXFjg--%2Fa_exif%2Cc_limit%2Ce_unsharp_mask%3A80%2Cf_auto%2Cfl_progressive%2Cg_south%2C...

Re: DI bass and guitar

further investigation finds that i get no output to speaker if I have a cable plugged in to EXT AMP....

I'm using a patch chord - does it need to be a balanced cable?

Re: DI bass and guitar

I double checked that it was the correct output - i was patched into the DI in of a preamp in and saw no input level of any kind.. My B15 is the later era B15s - i wonder if it has a change in the circuitry or design?

Re: DI bass and guitar

i'm trying out this EXT amp output and its not feeding anything out of it...I have a dummy load on the speaker cable but I am getting nada - doesn't matter whether it's on standby or not either.

What am I doing wrong?

Re: DI bass and guitar

awesome - I'm gonna try this soon! side note - Do you think it affects the sound coming out of the speakers a lot to not have the head on top (thus making it a "closed" cab)? I've had the head off the cab for the past 6 years and it seems to work fine.... btw mine used to be a lot rattlier too but i...

Re: DI bass and guitar

It's pretty good but I think the B15 pre-amp is where the real mojo is in that chain. Between the two I'm able to flip switches and turn knobs in real time until I get what I want. It's a godsend when I'm mixing other people's DI bass tracks too. hey Dave - any tips on how to use a B15 head in this...

I don't see any option to alter the release time in Ozone 7. The vocals are pretty carved out - it's kind of a mystery to me to be honest.
The "character" slider appears to be the release... mystery solved. That absolutely helps - I had it on the fastest setting!

Re: DI bass and guitar

I've been doing more and more DI guitar over the past few years - I use the DI inputs on the chandler TG2 .. sometimes just because it's faster but sometimes because it has a different sound that can be more interesting or unique... I've used this a lot for synths and it's a great pre to drive a lit...
