I see they changed things in the forums again... goodie.  Once things work, why can't they leave them alone?   I realize, being a software developer, that they want to use the latest and greatest....  but damn.


Now, back to the question...   It is my understanding from the GearBox documentation, that I can disable the amp models and the X3 Live would be basically like my M9; just effects.  I have done so, however, I notice that the volume on the amp model is left on and on most occasions zeroed.   There are times when I want to use this thing (X3 Live) as an effects pedal board with my tube amps.   I disabled the amp models on some patches I had set up so I could have all the effects.   Had to adjust the volumes on the amps model (even though it was disabled) to where they were.   Now instead of hearing my Blues Jr, or Mesa Boogie SOB colored by the delay, chorus, or whatever, each tone sounds weird.  They should all be basically the same, except without the extra kick of the amp model and its EQ.   What am I doing wrong?  Have I misunderstood how to run this thing?

the old forums didn't work... they got crippled by some spambots.. i think this is much better... but its completely different software... not the latest and greatest...version of the old software.

ON the X3 (and presumably in Gearbox also) there is a setting associated with the Amp called 'Bypass Volume'. This controls the volume level of the signal that is sent from the Amp block when the amp is off.
