Not sure what I'm doing wrong but when I first engage my MUFXTT3X the notes are hardly there, meaning there are no effects present, everything is very muted.
Does the pedal need to "warm" up? And how do you do that without having it always "on"?
Where is it in your signal path? What kind of guitar/pickups/wiring? What settings on the trutron are you using?
Here is the manual: http://mu-fx-trutron3x.com/resources/Tr ... 20rev1.pdf
Try the suggested Jerry settings, if you haven't already.
I've noticed it seems to like a slight warm up.
Here is what it says in the manual about warmup:
"PHOTOMOD WARM-UP TIME
A very important aspect of the characteristics of the PHOTOMODS (optocouplers) that
control the filter frequency is that they have “WARM UP” time! For best results, leave the
power on and the sweep in DOWN DRIVE, with no input for about 10 minutes before you
start to experiment with the settings or play using your last settings.
Most people cannot hear the difference in sweep due to this “light history” effect, but for
maximum accuracy of control settings it is best to “warm-up” the photomods in this way - if
you have time. If you don’t have time for this warm-up period, the unit might sweep a bit
high at first, but will gradually settle to its usual operating range".
