I am looking for something to record bass directly into my daw and also use live, preferrabley tube. I don't need alot of bells and whistles, mostly just a preamp and compression type piece. I've already tried the Pod Pro for bass and didn't like it. I want something simple but of high quality. My budget is $1000. I've been considering several options which include: Summit Audio's TD-100 (di) and TL-50 (compressor) HHB Fatmen processor Demeter tube di with external compressor Aguilar tube di with external compressor Avalon U5. Do any of you have any experience with these for bass? Or any suggestions I may have not considered? Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Abraham.
