Mark V Effects Loop and Residual Signal

Post by rkaczano » Tue Jun 04, 2013 12:06 am

I am using a TC Electronics G Force with my Mark V effects loop.

When I dial the INPUT level of the G Force down to 0 I still get a residual signal in the Mark V. Why is this. I would expect there to be no sound at all coming out of the amp as I technically send nothing and nothing should return.

Thanks

There has to be somebody who can answer this.

Is it normal when using the EFFECTS LOOP on a MARK V to still hear a residual signal (very low) in the amp WHEN the INPUT on the effects unit is set at it lowest point?

Thanks

I had to get this answer from the Fractal Audio forum!

Thanks

Also available in a number of discussions on this site, including:

Incidentally, most people don't read these categories. Mostly they stay in the amp discussion sections, so you need to be patient if you post a question here.

I noticed it when I tried to do volume swells using a Midi Foot controller (Behringer FC1010) and a TC Electronics G-Force. The residual signal in the Mesa Mark V at 0 volume kills the swell effect. I oriignally thought the problem was with the Behringer FC1010 or the G-Force. Now I know it is the amp itself.

Not sure what he work around is with the amp.
