    Direct should bypass tone controls and bass management.

    I think "direct" sends the signal straight to the amp, bypassing most or all of the processors and filters (like the bass and treble controls) giving the amp a cleaner signal. If this is incorrect I'm sure someone will jump on it quickly! [​IMG]

    But, when you use direct, you still get stereo sound? right?

    Yes indeed but it's with a flat response. That's why it sounds a little different. No bass or treble adjustments allowed.
