I found a way to get around that and always have the same "Bassman-sound" no matter what volume I'm playing at...I often get asked how I set the Sans Amp GT2 pedal to get a vintage sound.I see no problem in that, even if you're trying to get a vintage'ish sound.Quite on the contrary actually: If it hadn't been for cheap hi-res sound cards, I could never have afforded to experiment and record as much as I have.
