Ok so today I went out and bought a peavy Vypyr after long talks with my parents they somehow presuaded me into saving money and getting the 15 watt.

so long story short the managers at GC kept saying don't do it get the line6 spiderIII, and I know they suck. so I get the vypyr and first it doesn't start up when I get home and it had been in the trunk for an hour or so so maybe its cold. so I let it sit for about 3 minutes it starts right up I'm playing with it for a good 2-3 hours and I start to notice that my note's ring after
I hit them like a good secound delay before it sounds, and last longer than the note started at? like it has some Imaginary delay swith on it,

so Does anyone else have this problem. with there Vypyr, Should I return it?

also the guy at GC said they suck and I'll be back shortly for the line6 WTF.

Thank you

make sure you aren't accidentally using delay effect on it. and also it could be that it's just cold and needs to acclimate to your home. try it again tomorrow to see if the problem keeps up.
#3
Its the delay function. go into edit mode by pressing the second "Effects" dial, then turn the "Mid" and "High" dials to zero, along with "post gain", those are "Feedback" "Level" and "Reverb" respectively (looking at the bottom). That should fix your problems.

Ok I'll try those in the morning, yeah its like when I go to mute the strings with the pick the sound just continues

Mine doesn't do that... Do a reset. I think you hold the amp and effects buttons in while you power it up to restore defaults.

I've got a 30 and have not had a single problem with it. I really like mine. I think the Vypyrs sound really good for modelling amps. When you get a good one they are good amps. I was in my local guitar shop the other day and a guy from Peavey was there and he said most of the defective ones were from the first shipments and the newer ones are better. I don't know if that's true or not but that was his excuse. Also updating the Vypyrs software takes care of at least some of the issues if not all of them.

I bought a vypyr, Had it, Returned it! For a practice amp never go that route, or spider, Just get a roland cube! Why do they make vypyrs and spiders more than 30 watts anyway? They are good for nothing more than a bedroom practice amp. For that purpose, they are fine.

i jsut bought a 30watt one today and ive noticed a random cliping of sounds sometimes as well. Its very very random but it happens. How do i update the software, i thought that only the 75 watt and up came with a USB port.

This is why GC sucks they always recommend you the crappiest gear at the local shop I go to they always recommend me good gear but I make sure to tell them my budget cause otherwise they want me to buy a $1200 jcm halfstack lol.

You need a USB to MIDI cable...costs about $30-$40 bucks. Then you can load the software update.

The clipping you are hearing might be due to the noise gate...? This is a total guess.... I know mine did some odd sound termination until I turned the post-gain down to 1 or 2 and then turned the guitar volume knob to ten. This also gave me more lee-way on the amp's volume control. Now it sustains like a mofo. I love this amp. No problems at all and sounds phenomenal.

Oh, and here's the cables that Peavey says they verified for use on the Vypyr:

# M-Audio USB Uno
# Edirol UM-1SX
# Turtle Beach MIDI USB cable

I priced them out and they usually go for $30 to $40 bucks....

I have problem in my Peavey Vypyr 15. It puts the volume very high by itself during playing. Can somebody please help??
#17
Way to revive a half a year old thread. Sounds like a programming problem. It might also be a problem with the dial. The amps are digital in the sense of how the dials work so it could be the dial making a bad connection or it could be the programming in it is changing something. I'd return it to the shop or check the Peavey forums. Their tech forums should be able to help you a lot more than here.

NP. Your guitar should have a volume knob. Simple as that. What model and brand is your guitar? I can tell you which one it is. It might be as easy as a tone and volume, or it might a little more tricky with a les paul guitar.
You shouldn't be able to get any sound except maybe an electric buzz with your master at 0. If you mean 1-2, then yeah, that can be fairly loud especially if you are in a quiet house in a small room about 3 ft from your amp and chest level (Which is how I have it actually, it sits on my chair). You can do a little bit of turning your post amp volume down a little to around 2 o'clock so you can turn the master up some. Also turn your preamp volume down some depending on where you want distortion to be.

Hey guys, I bought a 15 watter in May and it's still working pretty nicely, I love everything about it!

Except... my auxilliary input doesn't seem to work. I remember I tried connected my laptop to it from the laptop headphone jack to the aux input on the Vypyr and it sounded beautiful (this was back in May), and you can play a backing track from your comp and play over it on the amp, etc etc. But I tried again recently and I got nothing! Now it's been a while and there's a chance I'm not doing it right, but how hard can it be? I get no sound when I play from the computer into the amp. Also, if I don't have the guitar cable plugged into the input and I'm trying to use the amp as a computer speaker I get the flashing lightshow as if I have nothing plugged in.

Can someone please help me, I'd love to get this working again it's such an amazing feature and would help my practice routine so much.

Thanks

I mean that the volume knob on the actual guitar could be turned up too high causing you to be playing loud even with the amp turned down.

The other problem depends on which channel we are talking about. I would say try turning your pre or post gain down as that will usually make it louder.

Did you try the obvious stuff like making sure there is output from the laptop? Do you get sound with headphones?

Another thing is to crank up the volume on your laptop to pretty much max and then raise the master volume on the vypyr.

Do you have an mp3 player? Try connecting that to the vypyr and see if it responds. Basically check everything you can that is not related to the vypyr before you start investigating if there is something wrong with it.

You can always try resetting it to factory defaults as well.

The lightshow etc only reacts to the guitar input jack.

Like above poster said...
Are you getting sound from headphones (Is your volume turned up. Turn it up to max).
Try pluging your guitar into the amp. Are you getting sound from the guitar?
Plug in another device into the amp. MP3 player, CD player, etc. Do you get any sound from that?
Try connecting your computer to another speaker using the cable. It might be the cable that is broken.
If all that fails, it is the amp. That means somewhere in the amp, probably the jack is my guess, its broken somewhere. You could try the whole factory defaults trick. That may work.

Anything after that, no idea what it could be. At that point I'm pretty sure you troubleshooted everything.

Wow, it works now! Don't know what happened but tried it last night and it worked great... I just have just been overlooking something stupid before.

All good ideas though, thanks anyways guys.

PS I love getting a backing track playing through the amp and improvising over it, great fun. I wish I bought the 30 watt so I could get the loop pedal.
#29
You could just get a loop pedal instead of using the effect in the amp.

I have Epiphone Les Paul Standard and I realized where the volume knob is. No I don't mean 1-2, I mean zero ): . yes I play in a small room . I tried turning post amp down a little and turnig preamp down some but nothing seems to help. The amp still rises the volume suddenly ): and that really freaks me out! but thanks anyway for you help. Maybe I should return this to the shop.

I was about to say the same thing, I think mods should be the only ones saying this to other members, because it's not helping.

I would, deff. Bring your guitar and test it against another one and see if it is fine. In the end, it might somehow be your guitar (However, unlikely)

It was mostly just because it seemed like the thread was rather specific on the problem. The title was appropriate but the body seemed a little off. Doesn't matter really. I just thought it was funny.

Um it depends I guess... I don't know much about amps yet, never heard of a Crate GX-15. My friend (who's been playing guitar way longer than me) doesn't like my amp too much because he likes a simpler more powerful amp, he's not much of an effects guy. Personally, I love it, but one has to realize it's strengths and weaknesses. I just practice in my room and occasionally jam with a friend or two. Never played a show or anything like that. It's definitely loud, i never go past 3-4, and rarely past 2 w/ distortion. It models a good amount of metal amps and I play a decent variety but a lot of metal so I like that. Also I wanted to learn about different effects and this allows you to do that very well. Not sure if other amps have these two features but I love playing my computer through it and also putting it through my headphones (I can get a backing track going and practice improv all without making a sound, to the outside listener).

However, I think if I improved enough in a few years I would get a more powerful, simpler, better sounding amp for gigs and get a distortion pedal or something maybe. Dunno. Just my 2 cents.

Hope that helps.
