Congratulations on your purchase of the Peavey MAX” 100. This stereo guitar floor processor represents years
of research into guitar tones, as well as effects units, and is one of the most flexible preamplifiers of its kind. The
preamp consists of the popular TransTube® design borrowed from the Peavey Bandit®, which allows transistors
to literally sound like tubes. When combined with the effects section, this preamp can get almost any sound known
to guitar. The effects section is a simplified subset of the TubeFex® effects section, using the same 24-bit Digital
Signal Processor (DSP) techniques with a simpler interface. The preamp’s 60 presets include the selection of
channels, and the effects selection, all with a single press of the footswitch. The effects order is fixed, but any or
all of the effects slots can be on and channel switching is instantaneous. There are 8 different effects types: chorus,
flanger, phaser, tremolo, delay, reverb, rotary speaker, and equalization. Each effect has programmable
MAX® 100 FEATURES
parameters, so the resulting combinations of tones are almost endless.
FEATURES
Up to 6 simultaneous effects
Preset-selectable, two-channel TransTube preamp
Independent EQ on each channel of the preamp
Gain switch and Thrash EQ on lead channel of the preamp
Preset-selectable Stereo digital effects processor with 8 effects types

Clip LED
Four footswitches with LED indicators for A, B, and C presets and bank selection
Preamp out jack and effects in jack (Loop)
CD/Tape in jack and stereo headphone jack
Quick Start
Let’s Jump Right In (Getting a Good Basic Tone):
After turning on the MAX 100, notice that the display reads 0.A. This number indicates that the preset A
of Bank 0 is active. The dot (.) in the middle indicates that this is a user-modifiable preset. 0.A is the first
user preset. To ensure that the basic starting tone is to your liking, press the parameter Y button (this is
just to the right of the display).
EE
The preset that is active now should be 9C the last factory preset. This preset is set on the Clean channel
and contains no effects, so you can adjust the Clean channel to your particular taste.
To adjust the Lead channel to your liking, press the parameter W button again. Now you’re on factory
preset 9B, which is a dry Lead channel preset. Adjust the Lead channel and you're done setting the
preamp's basic gain and tone to your personal preferences.
‘The MAX 100 was designed to be a stand-alone preamp. That is, it was designed to plug directly into a
power amplifier/mixer and then to speakers. However, if it is placed before a guitar preamp with its own
preamp/EQ, as is the case with a stomp box, the signal will be "double EQed" first by the MAX 100 and
then by the guitar preamp. The following settings will approximate a "flat" EQ on the MAX 100 allow-
ing the player to adjust his guitar preamp's EQ as usual:
| FLAT SETTINGS
Clean Channel: Low=7, Mid=6 High=2 With the volume set to taste
Lead Channel: - Low=3 Mid=10 High=7 No thrash, with pregain at the lower
settings.
Let’s Hear Some Sounds (Checking Out Factory Patches):
After adjusting the clean and lead tones to your taste, use the parameter À or VW buttons to step through
the factory presets. Note that the presets are numbered 0A through 9C. This corresponds to 10 banks (0-
9) of 3 patches (A, B, & C) per bank. If at any time you press a wrong button or get confused, you can
return to preset 0.A by simply turning the preamp off and back on.
Each preset automatically selects one of the two preamp channels — Clean or Lead. To hear what a
preset would sound like if it selected the opposite channel, press the Channel Select button.

Let Me Edit a Patch (Editing Patches Quickly):
Use the A or Y parameter buttons to select a preset you wish to edit. (Make sure the patch is a “user”
patch.) Now press the p FX EDIT button, which puts you in Edit mode. By continuing to press the
p FX EDIT button, you can scroll through the different possible effects.
When the LED below the effect you wish to edit lights, you’ll notice that the display reads either on or
of (off). This corresponds to whether or not the effect is currently 1 in use or not. To change this param-
eter, use the parameter 4 or V buttons.
Now, using the A FX EDIT button, step through the various editable parameters of the particular effect
youre adjusting. When the LED lights in the same row as the parameter that you wish to edit, use the
parameter À or V buttons to change it to your desired setting.
| PRESET
ON/OFF | ON/OFF | ON/OFF | ON/OFF |
To store your newly created guitar tone, press the Store button. The display will start to flash, and will
indicate the target storage location. You can either use the parameter À or VW buttons to change the
preset target location, or just hit Store again to save to the current preset location. That's it.

and press Store again to complete.
PLAY/TUNER BUTTON (13)
Used to switch back to Play mode if discarding edited changes, activating the chromatic tuner, and
deactivating the chromatic tuner.
MAIN DISPLAY (14)
The LED segments in the display show the current bank/preset when in Play mode or the parameter
value being adjusted when in Edit mode. Also included are LEDs that indicate if the presets are editable
user or non-editable factory presets, as well as DSP headroom. If the clip LED indicator occasionally
blinks, this indicates 6 dB of DSP headroom remaining before clipping. If the LED is constant, the DSP
is probably being clipped. If the tuner is activated, the note that the guitar’s pitch is closest to will be
shown in the display, while the bottom row of the effects matrix LEDs will indicate how flat or sharp the
note 15.
EDIT A / > SCROLL BUTTONS (15)
Used to scroll through the editable parameters for each effect. To edit press either the A or > scroll
button. This switches the DSP into Edit mode. Then edit the effects by pressing the » scroll button to
select the effect to edit, pressing the A scroll button to scroll through the parameters, and using the
parameter A or ¥ button to adjust the parameter’s value. While in Edit mode, a red LED will blink.
EFFECTS MATRIX LED’S (16)
The LED matrix indicates which effects are active within a preset when in Play mode, and which effect
and parameter is being modified when in Edit mode. If the tuner is activated, the bottom row of effects
matrix LEDs will indicate how flat or sharp the note 1s, while the main display will indicate the note that
the guitar’s pitch 1s closest to.

STEREO HEADPHONE JACK (18)
Provided for use with any stereo headset. This provides the same outputs as the left and right outs except
with frequency compensation to simulate a speaker’s tone. |
STEREO CD/TAPE INPUT JACK (19)
Provided as a “jam-along” input. This stereo input mixes only with the stereo headphone output.
LEFT/MONO & RIGHT OUTPUT JACKS (20)
These are 1/4" line level outputs for direct connection to an amplifier or mixer. For mono operation, use
the Left/Mono output, which passively sums the stereo image from the two outputs into the Left/Mono
output (as long as nothing is plugged into the right output jack). |
EFFECTS INPUT JACK (21)
This 1/4" line level input bypasses the TransTube preamp and routes the signal directly to the Digital
Signal Processor. When a 1/4" plug is inserted into this input, the Trans Tube preamp output 1s discon-
nected from the Digital Signal Processor input. This input is the “return” from an outboard effects
device when used as an effects loop. a
PREAMP OUTPUT JACK (22)
This 1/4" line level output is provided to allow the player to route signal only through the TransTube
analog preamp and out to amp, mixer, effects device, etc. This output 1s the “send” to an outboard effects
device when used as an effects loop. |
GUITAR INPUT JACK (23)
This 1/4" input will accept signals from all types of guitar pickups. Be sure to use a high-quality,
shielded cable to connect the guitar to the preamp.
Play Mode
Selecting Presets/Basic Functions
Whenever the MAX 100 is powered up, it automatically goes into Play mode. When in Play mode, the
main LED display on the MAX 100 reads the current patch number. On power-up, the selected preset
will be 0.A, which is user-modifiable preset A of bank 0. The presets are arranged in 20 banks (0-9 of
user and 0-9 of factory sets) of 3 patches (A, B, and C) per bank for a total of 60 presets. If the decimal
point between the 0 and A is lit, this signifies that the preset is in the user set — otherwise the patch is a
factory one. To change from the factory to the user set, simply scroll through the patches using the
parameter À or ¥ buttons to wrap around to the other set (0.A to 9C or 9.C to 0A).
The user presets come from the factory set the same as the factory presets, and can be returned to this
state by powering up the MAX 100 with both the Store and Channel Select buttons held down. The
display will read Fr, indicating that the user presets were restored to original factory settings.
CAUTION: All previously defined user presets are lost when this is performed.
The stored presets simultaneously select two things: a channel selection between the Clean and Lead
channel, and an effects selection. The channel selection will be indicated by the LEDs in each channel
block. Any preset can call up either channel — i.e. they can all be clean, all dirty, some of each, what-
ever you want. The effects section is a multi-effects unit which allows the use of any or all of the 6
effects slots to be active. Each one of these effects is fully programmable, and can be tailored for each
preset. Some even allow selection of alternate effects types (Chorus/Flanger and Tremolo/Phaser, for
example). This system allows for tonal flexibility and many sonic possibilities. For a complete descrip-
tion of each effect and its parameters, see the section entitled Individual Effects/Parameters.

ON/OFF | ON/OFF | | EQ/OFE
After setting the preamp controls to your liking by following the quick start example, use the parameter
A or V buttons to step through the presets. Alternately, the footswitches can also be used to select the
various presets. The footswitch includes bank 4 or Y buttons, an A/B button that selects between A and
B patches, and a C override button that overrides the A/B setting and switches to C. If either the
footswitches or the parameter switches are used, the other will reflect the same changes. One important
difference in using the footswitches, however, is that unlike the parameter buttons, the footswitch will
not scroll from user presets to factory presets or vica versa. If the amp is not on a user preset you must
first select the user set via the parameter buttons. This allows the user to wrap around through the user
presets (from 9.C back to 0.A), which is the most typical application of footswitch use.
ON/OFE e ON/OFF | e деле
At any time, the Channel Select button can be used to change the selected preamp channel from Clean
to Lead, or vice versa. This can be very useful when trying patches in different modes. If you change to
the next preset without storing this change, the channel selection change you made will simply be
ignored.
VARIOUS LED FUNCTIONS:
Main LED Display:
The main LED display indicates the preset number when in \ Play mode, the parameter being modified
when in Edit mode, and the note being played when in Tuner mode. As previously indicated, the center
decimal point in the main LED display indicates whether the bank is set to the User or Factory bank of
presets. The right decimal point in the main LED display will illuminate, indicating that the DSP is close
to clipping. For the quietest operation, set the preamp volumes so that this indicator flickers occasionally
(i.e. set the preamp volume controls so the light flickers and use the preset volume control to set the
"volume" to taste.) However, for the cleanest operation, avoid settings where this light stays on con-
stantly. a ВЕ | |
- Channel LEDs:
The channel that is active will have the LED illuminated that is within its control area. The LEDs are
different colors — green for Clean and red for Lead — to allow for easier distinction when viewing
from a distance.
11
Effects LED Matrix:
When in Edit mode, the effects LED matrix on the far right of the preamp is used to indicate which
effect and which parameter is being edited. If the tuner is activated, the bottom row of LEDs indicates
how sharp or how flat the note is. When in Play mode, the LED matrix indicates which effects are
active. This way it is easier to identify the preset at a glance. |
NA
TIME
This particular display indicates the amp is set to User patch 1.C, and the following effects are active:
Chorus/Flange, Tremolo/Phaser, Rotary Speaker, and EQ.
Footswitch LEDs:
The LEDs on the footswitch show which preset is selected: A, B, or C. This works as follows: If the C
LED 1s off, the setting will be A or B — depending on which 15 lit. To change between A and B, simply
press the A/B switch. To switch to C, press the C override button, which overrides the setting of the A/B
switch — when the C LED 15 lit, then preset 1s on C — regardless of the A/B setting. To return to A or B
first make sure the appropriate one is lit, then press C to return to A or B. This system is great for tog-
gling between two presets, by simply hitting the same button over and over, when jumping in and out of
solos, etc.

12
Tuner Mode:
If the Play/Tuner button is pressed while in Play mode, or the Bank A and V¥ footswitches are pressed
simultaneously, the MAX 100 will switch to Tuner mode. The Channel Select button can be used to
select between the Clean channel or muted output. The tuner is a full chromatic one, with LEDs indicat-
ing how flat or how sharp the note is. When the note is in tune, both of the center LEDs will illuminate.
CHANNEL SELECT |
Since the tuner is a full chromatic tuner rather than dedicated to EADGBE tuning, you can detune the
whole instrument simply by tuning to whatever notes you desire (for example, you could tune down 1/2
step to Eb-EbAbDbGbBbEb, open À tuning — EAFAC#E, drop D tuning — DADGBE, etc.)
To return to Play mode, simply press the Play/Tuner button or any of the 4 footswitches and the preamp
will return to Play mode in the last preset used before selecting Tuner mode. Note that the “last” setting
of the tuner bypass/mute selection is stored upon exiting Tuner mode. That setting 1s recalled any time
the tuner is activated.
The DSP Edge Control:
The DSP Edge control globally adjusts the high end of the delay and reverb tails. This can be very useful when
trying to simulate an analog or tape delay, where the tape system couldn’t play back with digital fidelity — the
highs were rolled off — and successive repeats had less and less highs. By adjusting this control to lower settings,
the resulting delays will sound warmer — more “analog”. By adjusting this control to higher settings, the resulting
delays will sound brighter — more “digital”.
The digital reverb is also tailored by the setting of the DSP Edge control. For more modern sounding, brighter
reverbs, the control should be set higher. To more closely approximate a spring reverb, set the control lower.
Additional equalization for the delays and reverbs can be obtained by using the programmable EQ, with the delays
and reverbs mixed 100% wet, and using the master Left and Right mix controls to set the mix. This technique
allows for creation of many different sounding reverb effects.
13
Edit Mode
Getting Into Edit Mode:
Editing presets and parameters on the Max 100 is very simple. After using the parameter 4 or Y
buttons to select the preset you wish to edit, the next step in editing presets on the Max 100 is to put
the effects system into Edit mode. This is accomplished by pressing either the A or » FX EDIT
button. After doing so, the Chorus/Flanger LED will start to blink. To discard the edited changes at any
time during the editing process, simply press Play or change the preset using the footswitch.
Selecting Effects to Edit:
For the purpose of demonstrating this, let's edit preset 2.b. It currently contains a delay, reverb, and a
digital EQ. We'll add a tremolo, delete the delay, and select a different EQ. Use the parameter А ог У
buttons to select preset 2.b.
Select the effect you wish to add, delete, or edit using the }> FX EDIT button. As the FX EDIT buttons
are pressed, the vertical column of LEDs will show which parameter is being edited, while the lower
row of LEDs will show which effect is being edited. As you scroll through the various effects, the main
LED display will indicate whether the effect is "on" or "of" (off). Use the parameter A or V buttons to
turn the tremolo effect on.

Changing Parameters:
Now use the A FX EDIT button to select which parameter you wish to edit. The main display will
show the current value that the particular is set to. To adjust the parameter, use the parameter 4 or Y
buttons. First, select the Tremolo/Phaser parameter and note that it is already set to tremolo (changing
the parameter buttons would change this parameter to phaser).

Now use the À FX EDIT button again to select the speed parameter and use the parameter A or Y
buttons to set it to 25. Note that if the parameter A or v button is held down, it will scroll to the
desired value.

Now use the A FX EDIT button again to select the intensity parameter and use the parameter A or V
buttons to set it to 85.
ON/OFF | ON/OFF |

Next use the p FX EDIT button to select the delay effect, and use the parameter 4 or V to turn it
"of". Once the effect is turned off, it isn't necessary to "zero out" the parameters. However, there is
one exception; on the Rotary Speaker effect, the speed settings from the previously used preset will
determine the initial speed of the rotor. Therefore, if you want the rotary speaker to ramp up to a fast
speed when initially selected, simply program the speed to slow on patches that have it turned off.
Use the > | FX EDIT button again to select the EQ effect. Its currently set to br (bright), but let's
change it to CL (clean). |
16
Storing Edited Presets:
After making all the changes to the preset, store it by pressing the Store button. Note that the display
will blink between S.t and 2.b, indicating that the destination preset location is 2.b. To select a differ-
ent destination preset location, simply use the parameter A or ¥ buttons. Once the appropriate desti-
nation preset number is in the display, press Store again to store the preset there. At any point during
the store process, simply press the Play button to abort the store operation.

The Individual Effects/Parameters section, starting on the following page, contains detailed information
about all the different effects, the parameters that can be adjusted, and includes some cool settings.
Selecting Preamp Channels:
The Max 100 selects one of the two preamp channels, Clean or Lead, whenever a preset is selected. This
is indicated by the LED inside the preamp block on the faceplate. To change the selected channel for a
preset, simply press Channel Select, and follow the same storing procedure from above.

INDIVIDUAL EFFECTS/PARAMETERS
CHORUS
The stereo Chorus effect mixes a delayed signal to the dry, while modulating the delay time, which
periodically changes the interval of pitch shift. This yields a pleasing stereo effect that sounds like
several voices at once with slight variations in pitch.
Parameters
On/Off.
Chorus/
Flanger:
Rate:
Depth:
Cool Setting:
Rate:
Depth:
The On/Off parameter determines whether the Chorus/Flanger effect is activated.
The Chorus/Flanger parameter determines which effect is selected, the Chorus (Ch) or
Flanger (FL).
The Rate parameter adjusts the speed that the delay is modulated. It can be varied from
0-99, (0-9.9 Hz in 0.1 Hz steps) although this range is somewhat higher than most stomp
box chorus pedals.
The Depth control adjusts the amount of variation of delay time that is applied to the
delay. The 0-99 range should be used with taste, and 1s generally decreased when
increasing the Rate control.
FLANGER
The Flanger originated from the recording technique called “flanging” in which the recording engineer
would rest his hand on the “flange” of the tape reel. By varying the pressure applied, the tape speed was
varied, and the pitch modulated. Electronic versions from the 70's also included feedback systems to
increase the intensity of the effect and thus created the classic Flanger effect.
Parameters
On/Off:
Chorus/
Flanger:
Rate:
— The On/Off parameter determines whether the Chorus/Flanger effect is activated.
The Chorus/Flanger parameter determines which effect 1s selected, the Chorus (Ch) or
Flanger (FL).
As in the Chorus effect, the Rate parameter adjusts the speed that the delay is modulated.
It can be varied from 0-99 (0-9.9Hz in 0.1 Hz steps) although this range is somewhat
higher than most stomp box flanger pedals.
18
Depth: The Depth control adjusts the amount of variation of delay time that is applied to the
delay. The 0-99 range should be used with taste, and is generally decreased when increas-
ing the Rate control. Because of the internal feedback systems and the smaller delay time,
decreasing the Depth control to 0 will still yield a flanging sound. To reduce the flange
effect, the output wet/dry mixes can be utilized.
Cool Setting:
Rate: 4
Depth: 80
TREMOLO
The tremolo was one of the first on-board effects to show up in guitar amplifiers. This version of
tremolo uses a special modulation waveform to accurately emulate the vintage guitar amp tremolos of
the 60’s — like turning the volume of the guitar up and down in a somewhat jerky fashion.
Parameters
On/Off: The On/Off parameter determines whether the Tremolo/Phaser effect is activated.
Tremolo/ The Tremolo/Phaser parameter determines which effect is selected, the Tremolo (tr) or
Phaser: Phaser (Ph).
Speed: The Speed parameter adjusts the rate at which the volume is modulated. It can be varied
trom 0-99 (0-9.9 Hz in 0.1 Hz steps) and allows for control very similar to that found in
vintage guitar amps.
Intensity: The Intensity control adjusts the amount of volume reduction obtained by the tremolo
effect. The range of 0-99 adjusts the intensity from no effect to full volume cut — i.e. the
sound is turned completely off as it modulates.
Cool Settings:
Speed: 40
Intensity: 60
PHASER
The classic phaser, or phase shifter, is one of the most commonly recorded guitar effects of the 70’s.
This effect modulates the phase shift amount of a signal and sums it back to the dry signal.
Parameters
On/Off: The On/Off parameter determines whether the Tremolo/Phaser effect is activated.
Tremolo/ The Tremolo/Phaser parameter determines which effect is selected, the Tremolo (tr) or
Phaser: Phaser (Ph).

Speed:
Intensity:
Cool Setting:
Speed:
Intensity:
The Speed parameter adjusts the rate at which the phase shift is modulated. It can be
varied from 0-99 although this range is somewhat higher than most stomp box phasers.
The Intensity control adjusts a feedback loop in the phase shifter to allow for a higher
frequency, and more resonant whistle. This isn’t like a depth control on a chorus where
the depth at 0 means no effect — just try it. The 0-99 range sounds the most normal when
set around 50, and sounds like more elaborate phase shifters with color switches, etc.
when set to around 99.

DELAY
This delay effect is a tapped delay, consisting of left and right delay lines separated by 20 mS delay time.
It includes parameters for delay time, feedback, and wet/dry mix, and is affected by the global setting of
the DSP Edge control. This control allows for simulation of tape or analog echoes by changing the
amount of highs in the delay line.
‘Parameters

Time:
Feedback:

Delay Time:
Feedback:
Mix:
The On/Off parameter determines whether the Delay effect is activated.
The Delay Time parameter sets the amount of time between the dry and delayed signals.
If adjacent presets use different delay times, and the delay effect is “on”, the delay will
simply change to the new time without stopping the repeats. The range 1s 0-87 and
represents delay times of 0 to 870 mS in 10 mS intervals.
The Feedback parameter affects the number of repeats that the delay will produce. The
range is 0-99, with 0 representing a single echo, or slap-back delay, and 99 yielding
almost infinite repeats. When changing between presets containing delay, the delays will
continue repeating after changing to the new delay times and feedback settings. If the
delay is turned off on the newly selected preset, the delays will stop.
The Mix parameter allows mixing between wet and dry. For a maximum delay level and
minimum dry level, adjust this parameter to 99. A setting of 0 will result in only dry
signal passing through.

REVERB
Probably the most important guitar effect of all time, the inclusion of reverb on vintage amplifiers not
only added a warmth to the guitar tones of the day — it also virtually created the genre of music known
as surf music. This reverb effect uses four possible reverb types — spring, plate, room, and hall — and a
reverb time control to simulate many different types of reverbs. The global setting of the DSP Edge
control can be used to simulate darker caverns, bright rooms, warm spring reverbs, etc. by tailoring the
tone of the reverb tails.
Parameters
On/Off: The On/Off parameter determines whether the reverb effect is activated.
Reverb The Reverb Type parameter selects one of four possible reverb types: spring
Type: (SP), plate (PL), room (ro), and hall (hL). Each type has different types of delays and
| different tone settings which, when combined with the time parameter, allow for many
variations of reverb settings.
Time: The Time parameter affects the length of time that the reverb tails last. The range is 0-99,
with 0 representing a very small room, and 99 yielding a huge, cavernous amount of
reverb.
Mix: The Mix parameter allows mixing between wet and dry. For maximum reverb level and
minimum dry level, adjust this parameter to 99. A setting of 0 will result in only dry
signal passing through.
Cool Setting:
Reverb type: SP
Time: 40
Mix: 35
ROTARY SPEAKER
The Rotary Speaker effect is normally thought of as a keyboard effect — however, many classic guitar
sounds were actually created by running guitar through a rotary speaker cabinet. This simulation incor-
porates separate Rotor Speed and Width controls, and when a new preset is recalled, the speed automati-
cally ramps to the new speed — just like a real rotary speaker cabinet.
Parameters
On/Off: The On/Off parameter determines whether the Rotary Speaker effect is activated.
Rotor The Rotor Speed parameter sets the speed at which the rotor is “spinning”. If adjacent
Speed: presets use different rotor speed settings, the speed changes gradually like a real rotary
speaker when switching between the presets. A special technique is used to preset the
initial value for the rotary speaker’s speed (i.e. whether it will “start at” or “ramp to” the
speed setting.) If the previously selected preset had the rotary speed effect “off,” but was

Mix:
set to a different speed, the speed will ramp to the new speed value when switching to a
preset with the rotary speaker effect “on”. The range for speeds is 0-99 (0-9.9 Hz in 0.1
Hz steps).
The Width parameter affects the amount of pitch shift and stereo panning that the spin-
ning rotor yields. The range is 0-99, and typically sounds best around 75.
The Mix parameter allows mixing between wet and dry. For maximum Rotary Speaker
effect, adjust this parameter to 99. A setting of 0 will result in all dry signal passing
through. The mix control is useful for obtaining the sound of an amp used with both a
rotary speaker and a normal guitar cabinet.

EQ/MASTER SECTION
The Master section includes 4 important parameters: the EQ parameter; Left Wet/Dry mix; Right Wet/
Dry mix; and the Master Volume. These are all preset-dependent parameters, (i.e., are saved as part of
each preset) and allow for greater flexibility by allowing each preset to contain different volume, mix,
and equalization settings.
Parameters
EQ/Off:
Left
Wet/Dry:
Right
Wet/Dry:
Master
Volume:
The EQ/Off parameter determines whether the EQ is off, or set on one of 7 preset EQ
curves:
Thrash (th): notches the upper mids
Low boost (Lo): boosts the low end and cuts the presence
High boost (hi): boosts the highs
Clean (CL): boosts the presence while slightly reducing the low-mids
Lead (Ld): slightly boosts the mids while slightly reducing the presence ——
Bass (bS): smiley-face |
Bright (br): increased highs with sharply reduced presence
The Left Wet/Dry parameter sets the wet/dry mix for the left output. This 1s particularly
useful if you wish to bypass the effects section on one side while the other side 1s full
wet. Also, this parameter can be used to reduce the effects level without going to each
individual effect mix control. The range is 0-99, with full dry at 0 and full wet at 99.
The Right Wet/Dry parameter sets the wet/dry mix for the right output.
The Master Volume parameter sets the overall volume of the amplifier for each preset.
The range is from 0-31 (-46.5 dB to 0 dB in 1.5 dB steps). This can be very useful in
setting balances between rhythm and lead sounds while using the same preamp channel.
It's a good idea to start with the volumes set around 25 or 26 to allow for increased and
decreased volume on each preset. Adjusting this volume will not affect the clip indicator.

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably in suscepti
bility to noise induced hearing loss, but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise
for a sufficient time.
The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible
noise level exposures.
Duration Per Day In Hours Sound Level dBA, Slow Response
8 90
6 92
4 95
3 97
2 100
11/2 102
1 105
1/2 110
1/4 or less 115
According to OSHA, any exposure in excess of the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss.
Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canals or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to
prevent a permanent hearing loss if exposure is in excess of the limits as set forth above. To ensure against potentially
dangerous exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of
producing high sound pressure levels such as this amplification system be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in
operation.
