Is my Triaxis OKAY? Or is it me? Lead modes SUPER quiet!

Post by Jonelli » Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:24 am

Hi Guys,
I just started playing around with my new old V1 Triaxis.
I was A/B-ing it with my BK Butler pre amp and trying to get some similar tones that I already use.

My first step was to play with the clean tones which was easy.
Then I went to the distortion modes and noticed that all of the lead modes are SUPER quiet. Not even close to usable output? I mean, they all appear to work, but they are 20-30dB quieter than the clean "rhy" modes. So, my question is, does my Triaxis have something wrong with it? Or is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?

The "rhy" modes both have what i would call sufficient output that I can adjust quiet to more than I need.
The "lead" modes are unusable with output and master all the way up in comparison to the "rhy" modes.

I might have an original Triaxis manual. MIGHT. I'll have to dig through my files and see what survived the last move.
