    Hi,

    The Fuzz pedal needs an urgent fix, it's completely broken. Take a listen:

    There's other combinations of drives and amps causing similar artefacts, but the combo of the Fuzz and the Kornfield amp is particularly bad.
    And yes, this is recorded with plenty of headroom. I also checked with mutiple guitar cables.

    Sascha,
    Please E-mail me your preset.
    With the editor, select the preset and go to FILE-EXPORT PRESET.
    Please send that file to jnuzback@atomicamps.com
    Is this with the most current firmware?

    Fwiw, should the Fuzz get fixed (and it clearly is broken, sounds completely off, even in front of a clean amp), could the tone control get some function, too, please? I know that there's no tone control on many vintage Fuzz units, but it could still be the same with the tone control in center position but add some shaping options once moved. Besides, the tone control doesn't act like on the originals (whichever they might be) on the other drive models, either, so 100% authentic behaviour doesn't seem to be of primary concern anyway.

    I am getting a similar clipping type crackle on some of the amps when crossing between clean and crunch. The bassman is one where if set at the edge, I hit a note and as it decays there is that crackle just before it goes clean.

    I’ll see if I can dig up an interface to record it this weekend.

    Matt,
    No need.
    The sound you're hearing is the modeled crossover distortion of that amp.
    You mostly get this in the Bassman and the Plexi models.
    This is normal.
