Sansamp controls basically amount to “more” or “less” of the “Sansamp sound”. The M80 is kind of biased toward a scooped type of sound as far as I can tell, so you almost inevitably will want to boost the mids a bit on the pedal, and cut the highs and lows, just to get a normal sound. It’s got a high-pass compressor compress lows and leave highs alonethe EQ is decent, the chorus is really thick and milky, and the envelope filter isn’t bad.

Yes, you can go straight to the p. I mean, in a technical sense, the answer is almost certainly yes: Want to add to the discussion?


Sign in with your GC account! I’ve had both, I prefer the MXR, still got it, still use it. You could carve a steak with a parq knife, but why would you, unless that’s all you had?

SansAmp Bass Driver DI or MXR M80 DI+ | Warwick Forum

Sansamp BDDI has a subpar eq section and subpar overdrive. But there is something to be said for single-purpose tools.

In short, I can’t help you out, but I’m confused to why you want one. Why become a member? They are 2 different things for 2 different purposes.
