I’ve found a number of pedals (at least I think it’s the pedals, not just a random bug) that no matter what I do, default to being on when the pedalboard is loaded - the two I’m struggling with at the moment are the GxQuack and the GxCreamMachine. I’ve tried saving the state as a default preset instead of just the board itself switching on, and that doesn’t fix it. What’s more, the graphical interface when I’ve got that hooked up indicates that the pedal is indeed off, rather than on, so it seems like it’s some kind of mismatch at load up between the audio state defaulting to on, even though the graphical interface is following the saved state of the board.
How to reproduce
- Create a pedal board that includes either of these plugins (maybe it’s a Gx code thing - might be worth trying some others)
- save the state of the board with the pedals switched off, ready to be activated by CC when needed.
- reload the board, and find that the pedals have defaulted to on.
I guess it just shouldn’t do it
Latest updates of OS and firmware, running Windows on a PC, but the same with Mac (tried switching laptops to see if it just wasn’t saving it, but it was the same, and all the other pedals can be saved in either state quite happily…)
