I recently added a boss DS-1 to my modest chain, and when i engage the pedal the volume from the amp (Line6 SpiderIII) increases drastically. I have a Digitech autowah/envelope filter that doesn't do that. I am new to effects pedals. How do i overcome this???
Use the level knob on the pedal and adjust it until the clean and distorted are the same volume. I think on the DS1 the level knob is the small one in the middle.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
^ exactly what he said about. The manual suggests that you put the pedal level at the same volume as your clean. So you don't experience what you are getting.
