  • loss of input????

    so when i power up and plug in it seems the pedal cuts the signal. when i unplug the power to the pedal and then plug it right back in it is back to normal. anybody else having this issue? and what's the corrective?

    I've never run into that before. I plug in power first half the time and the instrument cable first the other half and I've never had issues either way.

    Is anyone else out there having this issue?

      The first time it happened I panicked. Ended up unplugging it and it worked. But when it happened a second time I got worried that it’s a pedal problem.

        That's really strange. I can't get mine to do that at all.

        Is it happening every time you plug in power first?

          The pedal board gets plugged in all at once. These last two times I’ve plugged in are the times it happed. Never had it happen before, always have plugged in the same way.

            Ok,
            I will run some tests and see if I can reproduce it on a pedalboard. We have a couple fully built boards here, so it should be easy enough to test.

              so, i plugged in again yesterday and it was not working. i unplugged the entire pedalboard and plugged it back in (previously i only unplugged the pedal from the power source) and it worked. i did it again, and it worked, third time, worked. This afternoon i plugged in the board again, and it seems the problem has rectified itself. any ideas?

                I haven't been able to reproduce the issue with either of our pedalboards here. So I'm honestly not sure.

                It seems like some kind of fluke issue without being able to reproduce it consistently. Intermittent issues are a nightmare for troubleshooting.

                  I had a similar issue, but it wasn't input. (I got sound when I used bypass) Caleb helped me track down my "no sound when powered on" to when I had the pedal set, when powered on and then off and on again, to a possibly corrupt VP. When I switch the pedal to a different VP I created and then do the same sequence, everything seems to work.....so far.

                    plugged it in again this morning, and no issue... you're right Caleb, intermittent issues are a nightmare to troubleshoot. i'll keep you in the loop.

                      well, it started happening again... not sure why or what to do about it.

                        Has anything changed since it was working correctly? Any new Voiceprints or changes to your pedalboard?

                          no change -- the only thing that has happened is that i had not plugged in the board for two weeks (because i was out of town).

                            That is so strange. I can't think of why that would happen, and I haven't been able to reproduce it.

                            If you want to send the pedal in for testing, I'd be happy to take a look at it.

                            Is it still working normally if you power it on separately?

                              it happened again and then went back to normal...
                              right now i don't know if i can part with it -- as i'm using it fairly regularly. i'm going to try and power it separately and see what happens, but i'm not sure if it's the "normal" phase or the "not normal" phase and for how long because if the intermittent nature of the problem.
