New To Amplifi -- A Few Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just purchased my new Amplifi TT and had a few questions.

 

First, what is the best mix of output levels?  The default levels of 75% guitar and 16% overall is far too loud to me.  I usually play with headphones and I find that with the overall volume below 35% I can't get enough volume out of music tracks (even with my iPad volume maxed).  But then (obviously) the guitar is then way too loud.

 

I've been turning the guitar output down to around 55-60%, and setting the overall at 35%.  Is this the best approach, or should I be turning the master volume of the amp model down instead?

 

 

Secondly, and somewhat related, is there a way to set the default output levels to stay at what I want them to be?  Every time I turn the Amplifi back on the outputs are back to 75/16.

 

 

And lastly, for now anyway, I have a question about saving/updating tones.  I have a bunch of my own created tones that I am still tweaking. Most of the time when I edit a tone and select "Save To My Tones" it updates the tone as expected.  But sometimes it saves it as a new tone.  Am I doing something wrong?

 

It's kind of annoying to edit a tone several times and then when I turn on the amp the next time I want to play I find that I have 5 tones all with the same name (all different revisions of my editing).

 

 

Thanks, and I appreciate any help the community can provide.

1) I typically adjust the overall level for a decent volume of the BT stream (which can change from album to album or track to track) then adjust the guitar level, withtthe final tweak being the channel volume of the amp and effect sims.

 

2) I don't think there is.

 

3) You can Save to My Tones or Save tone as... Save to My tones should overwrite and Save tone as should create a new entry. If you use Save tone as without giving it a unique name it will get confusing.

Thanks for the input.

For this, what is the optimum guitar level that the factory tones were all designed for?  Lowering the guitar volume obviously has an effect on each tone that isn't overcome by increasing the overall volume.  All of the tones would have been designed with an optimal guitar level in mind.

On this one, I don't think you understood what I was saying.  I know the difference between "Save" and "Save As".  My problem is, sometimes when I edit an already created tone, and select "Save" it creates a new tone instead of overwriting it as it should.

 

 

Thanks again for the help.
