"you are right, the more distortion / higher gain the worse it is" --- Yes, gain and
distortions go together.
It's an aspect of amplification. Too much gain and you get non-linear gain aspects or "Linear Distortions",
or you can get clipping when you hit the limits of the circuit's gain range resulting in "Harmonic Distortions".
Staying within the gain limits gives a clean sound. Keeping track of gain levels though the signal chain is
needed to give a good solid sound,... unless distortion or overdrive is an effect you want to use.
israz99,... the Models catch the quirks and nuances of the instrument they are modeled from. Source of
"strange noises" in my experience can be a result of the set-up (neck relief, action, intonation, pick-up
For instance,... if the action is off and fret buzz occurs, this gets processed with all the rest of the signal and
Pick-up magnets being too close to the strings allows the magnetic field to pull on the strings which can
produce a warbling distortion in Model Mode. So pick-up height-to-string distance is important.
If the intonation is out of adjustment, the beat frequencies that occur get processed and can result in a kind
of whistling or hollowing.
So set-up and having the set-up being up to specs is very important on this or any guitar.
