Re: what out output should i set my g major too in marshal effects loop
Check these two things within your I/O menu and let me know what the settings are:
1) Input Range: Pro or Consumer? Pro is the recommended default but consumer works better with guitar amps. switch between the two of them as see what you think.
2) What is your output range (2dBu, 8dBu, 14dBu or 20dBu?) 14 is the default, but I use 20dBu for a little higher output.
Both of these make a BIG difference in volume levels.
After you set these values, crank your amp up to a safe room volume with the G-Major plugged in. Unplug the effects loop RETURN cable on your guitar amp and see if the volume levels change. If it DOES change, play around with the input / output knobs on the front to see if you can match it without clipping. If the problem persists, try a different output range (in dBu). Ideally, you'll want it to be the same volume with or without the G-Major plugged in. Also, do this testing with the effects bypassed.
Note: After you get a good 1:1 volume match, you MAY need to adjust some of your effects levels and mixes as the input / output signals have changed.
If the level is good, turn your amp up to a LOUD volume and unplug the G-Major again (with earplugs in - ha ha) to see if the volume changes drastically. It may change a little bit as the signal is being fed to your G-Major at different levels. This all depends on the design of the effects loop on the TSL.
