A very solid overall DI unit and preamp

12.10.2016
It works great and colors the tone wonderfully.
The ultra low is very useful to get a big warm sound and stay out of guitar frequencies.
The ultra high adds bite.
The EQ is solid and usefull.
Plugging headphones or computer speakers into it makes it a great practice amp replacement, and aux in adds further features like playing along with music from your phone or computer.

The drive is ok, not great. Its mid sounding and bites. Very vintagey and fuzzy. You might like it or not

There is one problem. If you have a very hot output you will clip the preamp. There is a trim pot inside the pedal to adjust it but makes the preamp much lower volume than bypass, which must be compensated by either upping the volume of the preamp or leaving the trim pot in passive mode and lowering input volume on the bass or i do it with an compressor. Problem comes around only with VERY HOT output active basses, but it is there.

I recommend the product very much.

The Real Deal

01.07.2015
I expected the Ampeg SCR DI to sound great but I wasn't prepared for it to sound so close to my old SVT rig. I've been using my SansAmp BDDI and VT Bass units live and in the studio for years and I love them but this really is an Ampeg SVT in your gig bag. If you want to send an SVT sound to FOH, this is the real deal. The AUX in mix to "headphones only" out is ideal for practice and gives me my own in-ear monitor; live and recording.
I can't see myself using the scrambler feature but it does deliver if that's what you want.
