A truckload of bass rigs in a single rackspace!

A 1U rackmount version of SansAmp Bass Driver DI, and then some
Most controls are the same as SansAmp Bass Driver DI:
Drive adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive; Presence brings out the upper harmonic content and attack; Blend allows you to mix the direct instrument signal with SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry; and active Bass and Treble controls cut or boost ±12dB.So what's different about SansAmp RBI?
SansAmp RBI features a dedicated Mid control; individual Level control for the XLR out to optimize your amp's output relative to the P.A. system; Effects Loop; Mix 50/50 switch to configure the Effects Loop in series or parallel; 1/4" rear input and XLR output with select- able levels; buffered uneffected XLR output to run a dry signal to a separate channel; Footswitch input to engage unit; and Footswitch output to chain and toggle between another SansAmp RBI.Streamline your setup --physically and financially.
SansAmp RBI gives you a truckload of bass amp rigs in a single rackspace. When you start with a solid foundation of tone, you can travel as heavy or light as you like: Float into any studio with just a SansAmp RBI and plug directly into the board. Go to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, a Bass Power Wedge 60 (see optional accessories below) and run directly through the house P.A. system. Take a more "traditional" set-up to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, power amp and speaker cabinet, and run directly through the house P.A. system.
In case you were wondering, you can switch between sounds by chaining to another SansAmp RBI. If you prefer programmability, please consider our own "not-just-for-guitar" SansAmp PSA-1. There are 10 presets devoted to bass and 49 user-definable locations for storing custom settings.
