This is true for every instrument category as well. There is a 'Flat' preset with that categories most common zEQ controls.
This thing is getting cooler by the minute!
My biggest challenge at the moment is explaining to people just how cool it is without getting all propeller-head-geeky about it.
I think the thing that might resonate best is explaining how all of the EQ, effects and presets are available on each channel...INDIVIDUALLY. It's like getting four separate racks full of gear for five hundred bucks!
My only wish (not a complaint...I think the T1 is incredible and kudos to you guys for doing such a great job) is that it had a footswitch. I mean, I need chorus from time to time, but not ALL the time. So the built-in effects are less useful than they might otherwise be for instrumentalists. Those of who use pedalboards or PODs will have to keep them and just not use what Bose has built in to the T1, simply because we can't switch the effects on the fly.
There's a workaround, but it ain't pretty...A/B switch and using two channels for the bass, each set up differently.
