Ludie Posted October 25, 2022 Share Posted October 25, 2022 I've been using my HX Effects live quite a bit and love it. The modulation and delay effects are pristine. No noise and they just do what they are supposed to. The distortion/overdrive patches have a huge 60 cycle hum. I had a similar problem on the same board with my old M5, but it wasn't quite as loud. Before I jump into the great ground loop rabbit hole, could the placement on my board be the issue? Here's how it's set up: Dunlop volume pedal > Vox Wah > Xotic BB+ > Vertex UltraPhonix > HX Effects > to amp Could that chain cause the problem? Right now, I use it a lot with a TrueTone OneSpot power supply. I've tried reversing polarity (unplug & replug swapped 180) and it doesn't help. I have heard, recently, an Ebtech hum eliminator will help, but have yet to try that. I also have a PedalSnake set up to run it when I have the time to set that up. The power supply is similar, but from another manufacturer. I use the same power supply from my rack thru the PedalSnake. Same issues. Overdrive & distortion patches have hum... nothing else does. I have not modified the output volumes, so they are as when it came out of the box. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
