Drive block knobs

Fractal Fanatic
Recently Cliff said he modeled the actual knows on the pedals. It got me thinking all the drive blocks have a tone knob but a BB Pre or AC booster for example does not a tone knob but rather bass and treble. It got me thinking that even though I have been with fractal since 2010 I don't recall ever hearing talk about how the drive pedal knobs correlate to the real knobs. Ie on BB pre should be leave tone knob at noon and use the bass and treble to get authentic responds. (You know like how on the amps with no mid knob you leave Mids at noon to get it like the real model is)

This is what I've been doing, but at the end of the day I use my ears.

Sometimes the tone knob gets me to where I want the drive block to sound, even though the "real" pedal doesn't have such a knob.

I treat it as if I'm able to tweak the circuit beyond what I could normally do without resulting to breaking the pedal open and warming up the soldering iron :p
