    Hi everyone.

    I've found that the left footswitch of my AFB sometimes fail when switching presets and this end up in embarrassing situations playing live, with songs that require to go from clean to slamming hard in a dime.

    This doesn't happen all the time, but rather randomly, which is what really pisses me off.

    Anyone experiencing this too?

    Sorry for the trouble with your AFB.
    Here are some things to check:
    1. Make sure the nut securing that foot switch to the chassis it tight.
    2. Try a different power supply. A True Tone 1-Spot is a good choice,
    but anything that meets these specs will work:
    9 volt, 200mA minimum, center negative polarity, 2 .1mm coax plug.
    3. Hook your unit up to the editor and go to FILE-UPDATE FIRMWARE.
    This will simply reload the current firmware in to your unit.
    This will sometimes fix random anomalies like this.

    If none of these things solve the problem, please write to me
    at support@atomicamps.com
    Cheers,
    Jace

    Hi Jace.

    1. Done; despite the nut being secure in place, the footswitch fails sometimes.
    2. I'm using a Truetone CS-7, using a 9V 500mA output.
    3. Done; the problem persists.
