    Hello im new here and just got the aa6. Im experiencing a Splaty decay on the end of the note like that of the Boss Blues Driver pedal. I've tried various settings but it still there. Any suggestions? I love this modeler!
    Thank you!

    I think you're talking about the power amp crossover distortion noise.
    It's only prevalent in the Plexi and 59 Bman amp models to my recollection.
    That kind of crossover distortion happens in those tube amps and was captured
    as part of the amp modeling. It annoys me to, but it's accurate.
    I always tell people to listen to the intro of Van Halen Drop Dead Legs from the 1984 album.
    You'll hear the same crossover distortion.
    Cheers,
    Jace

    Reading the title of your post again, I'm wondering if your unit is clipping? If so, the display on the hardware should indicate that. The first thing to do is simply turn the LEVEL control down. After that make sure your AMP and CAB level controls are set close to 0dB. Then you can check other effect block parameters and make sure their LEVEL parameters are set to 0dB or less. (Chorus, Echo, Reverb, Etc.) Boosts in level will always happen within the EQ blocks. Try to keep any increase in EQ levels under 6dB.
    I hope this helps.
