I use an H90 for bass all the time, but I don’t ask it to do the things you are discussing. For that I have a Micro-Tron, various compressors, and a Future Impact which excel at their duties with lots of flexibility and the ability to adjust on the fly at a gig. While I might be able to shoe horn all those things into the H90, I much prefer it for time based effects (it replaced a Lexicon MPX G2). I don’t see it as an all in one unit like the Helix, etc., but as a sonic palette to explore spatial effects. I love it. But I also get to play with adventurous textures that are not limited to traditional bass tones or function.
I think it would be an easy matter to find a source type that would be a compromise between different types of inputs. I use reverb and a flanger on my bass all the time and I don’t see why they wouldn’t work for a Moog without changing the source type.
