Pod xt pro: output knob at zero but still hearing volume???
by chrislanie on 2013-01-27 04:15:07

Hi Guys

Just playing through my xt pro this morning and suddenly realised that even with the output knob turned down to zero I'm still hearing signal coming through. Also when I turn the output up (unsurprisingly) the volume increases as it should but comparitively louder than it should be. I know the output level is the only thing that can't be programmed but it's almost like it HAS been programmed too loud and I can't seem to reset it. I've tried changing patches and switching the unit on/off a few times but it's still the same???

I appreciate this isn't a major problem and eveything else seems to be working fine but it seems odd? I this the start of further problems to come?

Cheers for any ideas?

Chris

Have you tried reflashing the firmware?

Doyou have a footpedal attached? This may need calibrating if so.

I'mnot sure if this pot is governed by the firmware - it may just be a volume pot at the end of the chain, which would mean it's a hardware issue.

Thanks for the reply.

No footpedal attatched so rules that one out.

I did consider reflashing but wasn't sure if that would reset to factory settings and affect my metalshop pack? Would the 'safe reflash' be better?

Thanks again!

You should always back up your patches before any procedure. Use the GearBox software for this. You should get a dialogue before reflashing to back up your patches anyway, but it's always good to have your own tried and tested back-up.

As long as the Metal Shop expansion is tied to your account then you even if a reflash made it disappear you could reactivate it from Monkey logged into you account. However be warned that if you bought the Pod second hand and the owner did not sign over ('gift' in Line 6 speak) the Metal Shop to your account it will be disabled as the licence manager will think he owns the Metal Shop and not you.
