Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks John, all rewired as you suggested and it's working better than before. For one, the noise has gone, but also it appears to have solved the issue I had with the lower volume from one of the channels... Which is odd. The guitar is more dynamic with the buffer, I've only used it with a guitar c...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks john, I'll have to rewire it slightly then, as currently I'm utilising both inputs in the tuner. one input is for the wireless, and the second input is wired to a front panel jack socket. If i use a guitar cable all i have to do is plug the cable into the socket and press the input selector o...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Right john, I have an update.... And quite interesting it is too. First I wired it as follows: Tuner -> Rear Panel Guitar Out Rear Panel Feed Thru -> Loop 5 In The result was the noise disappeared, but the sound coming out was very woolly, with no top end. Also the volume had dropped considerably. I...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Understood.....

I'll do that tomorrow, as it's now 23:14 here now and i'm off to bed. As an alternative can I connect it as follows to achieve the same result?

Tuner -> Rear Panel Guitar Out
Rear Panel Feed Thru -> Loop 5 In

I'll let you know how it goes

Cheers

Andy

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Hi John Yeah, the GCX is isolated, to a fashion. I've placed plastic washers between the GCX and the rails, however there is still a chance that contact is being made via the rack screw through the rack ear into the rail, if the screw is making contact on the inside of the rack ear hole. I have no i...

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Right... Where do I start. I turned off the radio receiver which took that out of the equation, I also bypassed the wah totally so that's not in the loop. so the audio path is as follows: Korg Tuner Rear panel output -> GCX rear panel loop 5 in GCX rear panel loop 8 out -> Triaxis rear panel input T...

Re: GCX Switcher Troubleshooting

Great news, not so great that you've had to buy a new GCX for no reason.

I've had that before, where the channel number has changed, not on the floor controller but on my G-Force. Always worth checking the obvious first.

Re: 60 Cycle Hum

Thanks John, the thing is I thought this was a quiet rig, and generally it is...... Until i put the fuzz face into the mix, then it sounds awful. When i turn the fuzz face off it's just drawn my attention to the noise that was originally there, albeit quite low.... I'll try all the steps you've sugg...

60 Cycle Hum

I appear to have a slight 60 hz hum issue in my rack. I never really noticed it until I tested a fuzz face pedal in the GCX and it amplified the buzzing noise. Everything is plugged into a Samson Power conditioner Then the signal flow is like this: Wireless Rear Panel output -> korg tuner rear panel...

Which suggests that there's an issue with the first GCX
