1) Input and Output Volume
You can control the overall input and output volumes using their respective knobs on the control bar. Adjust the input volume knob to optimize the input level for your particular guitar pickup. To get the best signal-to-noise ratio, turn the input knob so when you play your guitar loud, the LEDs in the input level meter hit 0 dB. The lock switch for the input-volume knob prevents you from changing the input volume accidentally.
2) Noise Gate
The Noise Gate reduces noise from an input such as a microphone or electric instrument. It is particularly useful for reducing hum or other background electrical noise.
THRESHOLD - Turn the threshold knob until the noise stops or decreases to an acceptable level.
DECAY - Decay sets the rate at which the Noise Gate will attenuate the signal once it drops below the threshold. Higher values will make the signal fade faster once it drops below the threshold.
To access the tuner, click on the tuner pedal icon next to the Noise Gate . Turn the volume up on your guitar for best results. Pick a string and it’s note will register on the tuner. The tuner is set to standard tuning for guitar. Turn your tuning keys until the desired note is lined up with the needle in the window. A green glow will appear when you are in tune. Repeat this for the remaining strings.
4) Output Setting
We offer an EQ compensation which allows you to tweak EQ in the final stage, you can also turn of the EQ by clicking the “On/off” switch.
