    Hi, new AA6 user here...
    Whenever I patch in an effect pedal in a high gain amp preset, I get very loud hissing. Even if there is no pedal connected to the AA6, (with cables attached to the send & return jacks) as soon as I engage the fx loop I get loud hiss. The cables are all good, and Im using good power.
    Ive tried all different fx loop settings. Of course this is only when the inserted effect is before the amp block.
    Any tricks Im missing? Thanks!

    Verified. I can't say that anyone else has ever mentioned this before.
    I'll dig in to this and find out why this is happening.

    Maybe it's engaging a virtual gain stage in the model and that's the cause? I'm thinking it's kind of how putting a boost pedal set to max in front of a high gain amp can cause hiss.

    This is normal operation, but we may be able to do something about it in a future update.
    We'll have to wait and see. For now use the FX loop post amp block any time you can.

    Hi, it was the send and return levels. Was way too hot, causing hiss. Problem solved. Thanks guys!
