I haven't tried anything like that, but I did notice that listening
to the low band soloed (no mids, no highs) there was some easily
audible distortion that I couldn't get rid of.
When turning off the solo switch, it either went away or was masked by
the mids and highs.
Not sure which version of JAMIN, this was early 2006 and
I haven't used it lately.
