Your smell is too much heat trying to dissipate. An overheated amp usually doesn't get better over time. The smell is of components being pushed beyond what their designers thought they would have to endure. If you kept it up, the amp could easily go out. If you back off short of that limit, you may not have a problem.

Sorry I thought you meant that the previous version had more controls to tweak the midi conversion/tracking.
The latest version has greatly simplified the controls to adjust the conversion leaving only a single control  "noise gate". It really is that simple. And it works for me with many type of guitars solid, semi acoustic and completely acoustic guitars.
A few people have reported having conversion problems, perhaps your case is one of these.
Try other guitars, with the volume and tone at maximum, or maybe with another audio interface to see if this solves your problem or if it not solve it and with the old version you get better results simply use the old one at the moment and write to the support of Jam origin to see if they can help you.
The the noise gate is not here to make the sound less dynamic, its here to avoid false triggers. If you want to control dynamics of the resulting midi velocity you have the "midi velocity" section where you have the parameter "curve" that I think acts like a midi compresor.
If you are getting to many false trigger notes then maybe you need to decrease the audio signal that com in midi guitar 2.
Midi Guitar is not yet a perfect system, for me the two big problems are with unusual intervals where in spite of detecting them, some of the notes get muted and in 2º place that in the final phase of the decay of the guitar sound sometimes undesired shots take place instead of simply silencing the note.
Hope that helps.

For what it's worth I had the same problem. After trying cable cleaning I finally decided to simply change out the GK2A to a newer GK3. My problem was solved. So for me,  either the 13 pin jack on the GK2A was going bad, a bad/cold solder joint developed on the board,  or the wires in the pickup were having issues.

I didn't pull the GK2A apart to figure it out. Didn't have the time or patience.  I prefer the GK3 anyway and the swap was fairly easy.

Roland GR-55 Discussion / Re: GR-55- PCM Octave error Pitch Change Reset
« Last post by mmmmgtr on Today at 05:52:22 PM »
 Is the Octave setting in any of the assigns or the Pdl/Ctrl settings?   This is probably the most common reason when settings don't appear to have changed when you save them.  The assigned setting immediately overrided what you think you just changed.
