1: I have a Vox Valvetronix AD50VT. When I first got it it worked great.... I remember I never even turned the master volume all the way up because it would just get way too loud.
So, last night I was practicing and I was trying out my new guitar and effect pedal, and all of the sudden a really high pitched screeching sound came out of the amp. I shut it down.
Today, I wrote to the two programs; I wanted CH 1 to be clean and CH 2 to be dirty and distorted so thats what I did. However, it was really quiet for some reason. Like I turned up the master volume all the way and it was relatively quiet. So, at first I thought maybe I set the volume wrong in the program so I re-wrote it with the volume turned all the way up. Still quiet. So I turned it onto manual and put the same exact setting that I had in the program except just on manaul mode and it was much much louder.
Why? At first I thought maybe the tubes were just bad.... but the fact that now I know it can go that loud tells me its not that tubes.
2: The effects settings on it..... it likes to give me trouble. I notice when I swtich to delay it will give actually give me reverb. Or like today I switched on tremolo and played with tremolo a little bit. Then I switched the bypass, maybe swtiched around the channels, then swtiched the bypass back on (I hadnt moved the effect selector switch at all) and it was in delay.
Whats going on guys? So far I have two major problems....
