This is a follow-up to my earlier post. Does anybody know--does the voicing switch remember other topology settings? What I mean is, do the voices act somewhat similar to the way the channels act in that when you switch out and then switch back in it remembers the last setting? So, for example, if you set voice II to class AB, then go to voice III and set that to Class A, then if you go back to voice II, will your DT automatically switch back to Class AB? My amp is in the shop and my tech is telling me this is what it does, which is news to me. He believes that each voice will remember the class switch and the pentode/triode switch settings. I re-read the quick start guide and it seems like maybe this is what it says too, but I'd really love to confirm it. THANKS!
My setup: JTV59 > VDI > HD500 > L6 LINK > DT25 combo I have had all components for some time now but not always using all together so the DT25 has not been heavily used or gigged much at all. I have not noticed this before - so thought I would ask on the forum just for a sanity check - it may be normal and I have just not noticed it before. Now - whenever I pick an HD500 pre amp model that uses the DT25 in mode III, CLASS A, PENTODE, such as the AC15 or AC30 models - the unit produces a much louder hum and background hiss than in any of the other combinations or with models that you may think would be noisier such as the Marshall models. This is with the DRIVE level set well below 50% for a clean sound. I tried placing a noise gate at the beginning and end of my chain with aggressive settings on the HD500 and it made no difference. Even tried turning the MASTER down on the HD500 and no difference. Lovely loud hum and background hiss. Switch to other configurations and it's much much quieter. So - is this normal? Or is my DT25 or my dream rig set up playing up? Thanks in advance for responses to my sanity check! :)
