    not extremely different I think...don't know though, as I always tweak by ear without looking at the dials.

    the "PSA after the amp" is actually "after the mic" as well, so it's a signal through the amp, cab etc and THEN put the PSA on the reamped signal in PT.

    That "after" psa is adding some distortion as well, the "pre-psa" is mainly used to make the amp sound "bigger"

    HP/LP lows and highs to separate tracks. SansAmp with a low drive setting on lows, and SansAmp followed by Pod Farm Bass Driver on the highs.

    I've used Cubase's Amp Simulator (Yes, seriously) on Crunch mode a lot of times with really good results. I'm actually using it right now on a mix and it growls!

    I use my Dual Rectifier through an Ampeg 4x10. Sansamp just for pick attack, typically.

    I have 2 dirt tracks a Sansamp RBI with a decent amount of gain, and then an ampsim going dirty as hell but blended lower.

    I absolutely love Comeback kid (especially Wake The Dead, but especially NOT Broadcasting). The bass player in my band emailed Bill Stevenson (I think) ages ago and he said the bass tone on Wake the Dead was:

    Stingray > Sansamp > Ampeg



    FUCKING AWESOME. That breakdown just slays.

    Sansamp is amazing to add some distortion in the bass,andy also uses it.
    if you cannot make it sound good then there are 2 reasons:
    1)the bass guitar sucks
    2)you have to work more with the sansamp

    Bass DI---> Reamp through Hartke ---> Royer 121 ----> Avalon 737 ---> Motu ---Cubase.
    Take this and LP 15hz Bell -4db@~450hz HP 600
    Then: Bass DI (other track) LP 500hz HP 4800hz ---> Big Muff (easy settings) ---> Avalon 737 Overdrived ---> Motu ---> Cubase
    Blend the two tracks, output them to a Bass group, and add Chorus with low rate.
