Quote from: bhorstkotte on August 04, 2023, 11:54:25 AMI'm suddenly having a problem with alternate tunings where I can hear a bit of the top 3 strings in standard tuning as well as alternate tuning. This is with the system patches like DADGAD, OpenG&P90) I have the same problem with 2 different cables and two different guitars (one is a Godin LGX-SA with piezo, the other a guitar with a GK-2A). I've checked every setting I can think of (patch mix, mix switch, pickup string sensitivity settings), and can't seem to find what's going on. Thought I would check to see if anyone else has run into something like this before I try backing up patches and doing a factory reset. Oh and I'm listening with closed back headphones, and it's only on the top 3 (plain) strings.Thanks - Brad

Quote from: Elantric on August 16, 2023, 02:58:38 PMBackup all user patches Perform a VG-99 Factory FULL Reset If it continues Try a different GK13 cable
Quote from: gumbo on August 16, 2023, 06:54:15 PMHmmm...The difference between the Mix Switch wiring in a GK2A vs a GK3, and what the VG-99 might be set to expect as input on Pin #9 ? ....or just some other sinister thing happening on that circuit?...just a thought before lunch (so therefore probably not thought through enough...)
Quote from: bhorstkotte on August 16, 2023, 08:33:10 PMHey I'm desperate, I'll take whatever The problem occurs with two different guitars, one with a piezo (Godin) and the other with a GK-2A.
Quote from: bhorstkotte on August 17, 2023, 08:49:57 AMThanks, tried all that, and same problem. Tried replacing the Godin 9V battery just in case, no change. The only other thing I can think of is perhaps the 13 pin input on the VG-99 itself is messed up? I only hear the "bleed" on the top 3 strings (even though the factory preset I'm testing with drops the low E to D as well).
Quote from: bhorstkotte on August 19, 2023, 03:52:33 PMI don't recall anything that was changed.No, I don't have access to another VG-99 - I do have a VG-88, perhaps I should try on that as well, I don't recall what its pitch shift capabilities are. Or maybe a local Guitar Center or Sam Ash may have one I can try with.In any case, thanks for the help thus far! I'll be away from my gear for a while, surgery and recovery, will check back in in a couple weeks.
