  • Sound processors

    I'm new to the board and I have a V-Sessions kit which is awesome in its own right but I hear some people talking about a sound processor that inhances the td-10. What is it and what will it do for me? Thanks, Rick

    It's the famed 3 letters followed by 3 numbers:

    BBE xxx

    Search for BBE and you'll find a lot more. Of course there are other "sonic enhancer" type modules out there... but I own a BBE and love it.

      Hmmmmmm, maybe you should try the search again. I know there's a ton of stuff in here.

        Marc.,

        Not all posts survived the great bulletin board migration, so the xlnt search function you always talk about is of lesser value now.

        A sound processor like the BBE will add some artificial frequencies to your sound. Some people like it because it can freshen up the sound. Other members don't hear a single sh...
        Also realize that the differences (effects from such gear) will be larger when playing at home / in a studio than live.

        I think it's better to start tweaking with the Roland module first. There is plenty tone control, room settings, compressor. Esp. with the TDW-1 update on which the compressors are better than on the unexpanded TD-10. Next: get a good sound system with EQ control. A sound can be improved considerably with just a bit of EQ. This is what other members on this board showed me. And I found out they were right, lately.

        If all that still doesn't meet your sound: then you can consider investing in BBE's, Exciters and things like that.

            I find a BBE is worth it. $99 on musiciansfriend and it gives new life to your sound. But I definately agree that you should get the sound as good as you can, and be happy with it before you add something like that. It's not a "make sound gooder" device. It enhances what's there. What's the phrase.... Sh*t in Sh*t out.

            For an idea, you can download the directx plugin version of BBE from the net. It's only a demo, but it'll give you the idea of what it can do. Listen to it with the plugin, then listen to it without. You'll probably recite the words I did... "It sounded like that?"
