Markbass Mark Studio 1
Prliminaire small precision: for now, I test the dmo (last week).
On the other hand, I play in a style oriental funk, fusion.

- Installation is it without problem?
No problem (on mac with logic pro 8)
- Have you experienced any incompatibility?
- The configuration gnrale is easy?
Trs simple.
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
I do not know (no manual with BMD).


- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
Mac Book Pro, 2X 2.4 GHz, 4 G ram, sound card motu ultralite mkIII.

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
No problem!

- This software + hardware configuration is stable?
Trs stable.


- How long have you use it?
For a week (I did not test back then).

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
What I like most: the sound (most importantly) the fact that rglages be sensitive and yet remain musical trs. My music man stingray wins again in expressiveness. It seems to me that the East is more plug'in pop, jazz, funk or rock than heavy metal. Anyway, what I found interresting in this plug'in is that magnifies the sound of Manir homogne and scrupulously respects the sound of the instrument, the mids and highs that are clearly audible without 'does no buzz is heard. The bass is prcises trs. In addition, the presets are really good program.

What I like least: it does not CHARACTERISTICS three tons. This is a amp simulation, period. The only effect provided a compressor is not up to my expectations and cause a nasty tendency to saturation .. May be I use wrong.

The sound is what I want but it might not suit everyone. For example, it does not seem to make IDAL dub. It is quite difficult to get hyper-gigantic bass that make you afraid to blow your speakers. Personally, I think it's an advantage: the plug provides a balanced and trs fate Integrates the best in a mix, even loaded. For its jazz, funk etc (even when that ncessitent beautiful big bass) is excellent!

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
My registration requirements are that I can not afford to save a rel bass amp with a microphone. I can not directly compare the sound quality of this simulation with the "ralitquot, but in any case by comparing the sound of the plug with that of pro recordings of Commerce, holds the road !
I am a bass pod xt possde which I think is much more difficult to use. The lower the pod are trs "muddy" and not Dfine compared to those of an studio markbass. The pod also eats most acute and cause buzz when you put them back. The markbass clearly offers much less opportunity to rglage the pod, but seems much more professional. Why have 16 amps and 15 effects simulated if none is Fully convincing? Mark on bass, him, offers only three amp simulations, but of quality.
I advise anyone looking for a bass amp simulation convincingly test the dmo to see if the types of sounds on offer for them.

- How do you report qualitprix?
The rate should markbass a studio in the 190 euro. This may seem expensive compared to a pod that provides a hardware solution and more toffe CHARACTERISTICS. To play in his living room, I recommend the pod, but for studio owners who are seeking homes record a bass sound that is close to REALLY enjoy the sound of the bass mark is clearly a better deal (although sr the best is still to buy a amp 1500 euro 1000 euro and a microphone to a system that (in) sound of his bedroom + - 5000 euro ... and have the time to learn proper placement of microphones).

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
With exprience, I think I will choose markbass. Before I DCID, even when I test the ampeg plug AmpliTube.

No need for manual, but it is still clear ...

Since March 2009, in short it's been 3 months ...
