    It seems to be a better way to turn down the main output about 2,0 - 2,5 in Layout section and then set the level in amp sections from that point? I could sometimes have some serious trouble when i think the dynamic in the tone was great (clean boost as well as high gain), then it often starts to clip. But I must also say I like to play to my studiemonitor out, from the DAW a little loud. The amp volume (master and level) would not be so sensitive, after that kind of adjustment?

    I noticed a similar strange behavior of my AXE XL. Sometimes when I turn on, I was getting a subtle but audible distortion in the high end and the preset sounds like to much presence and a little bit thin but my unit wasn't connected to a soundcard or PC only to my Matrix Q12a and MFC. Sometimes a reset solves this problem sometimes not. I couldn't find the cause. Don't use active pickups, changing the cables didn't change anything. My instrument level is 50%, no red LEDs, no extreme presets. This distortion is particular clear on mid and high gain sounds but also in clear settings. The next time I turn the AXE on everything every preset sounds as it should but this problem sucks because it kills this awesome feeling playing through the AXE if everything is alright. Any suggestions?
