I agree, it works for them but.... (rest of the response below)Well, it appears to float their boat. Nothing wrong with that. But I fully understand your frustration.
It's funny because:Why is that funny?
1) Calling it a "powerhouse for bass". Sure, it has a lot that can be done, but powerhouse? I dunno... it's certainly an unrivaled powerhouse for guitar, and super plug and play. To get anything beyond a pretty straightforward bass tone though, not sure I'd call it a "powerhouse". But that's dicing words.
2) "Classic bass amps" - which ones? There's what, 3 bass amps in there that bassists actually care about and use? A lot of the 1) classic 2) popular and/or 3) modern bass amps are no-show.
3) Fractal's bass player support is dubious at best. Sure, they will do everything they can for their artists, but when it comes to adding an amp, cab, or effect, fo'get'abou'it. How many years did it take to get the B7K?
It's just funny because they post as if it's as good for bass as it is for guitar. It's not.
Edit to add: I think the fact that this topic is brought up by various bass players, and around and around the discussion goes, speaks a lot to it as well.
