I’m using my Mod Duo mostly with my basses. The signal can have quite extreme variations. This is usually not an issue for my sound interface and my bass preamp, but seems to pose an issue to the Mod Duo. When cranking up the bass pot and playing the low B string, the Mod Duo distorts – even at the “Low” setting with the Fine Adjust all the way down to -12 db. Interestingly enough, when I use the hardware bypass, there is almost no distortion.
For me, this means I have to turn the Mod Duo way down to avoid any digital clipping reaching the PA when I play live. And that results in a rather low signal, which is often an issue.
Any advice on how to deal with this? Is there any way to make the Mod Duo sensitivity behave more like it does in hardware bypass mode?
