Alembic is well known for their bass guitars and preamps. One of their products that I think would come in handy while mixing is the the SF-2 Super Filter. I'm eager to try this on bass in combination with a Distressor. Both in series and parallel. Which do you think would sound better?
From the Alembic website:"The SF-2 Super Filter contains two tunable active filters of exceptional dynamic range. The filters can be configured individually as low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass. In the stereo mode, two channels are provided, each with a two channel mixer for combining the filtered and unfiltered signals. In an alternate mono mode, a three channel mixer combines the two filtered and one unfiltered signal paths, together with an input gain control. An instrument preamplifier with front panel input jack is also available for stand-alone use..."
They also state that "...There is no other preamp, graphic EQ, parametric EQ, or filter unit anywhere from anyone that can shape tone like the Alembic SF-2." If you have used this unit, do you agree?
