This is a good point if your amp has a noise gate, turn it down.

The Valvtronix amps have a built in noise gate on some of the higher gain amp models. The noise gate will fade out your sound in an unnatural way. Turn it down and you'll be fine. I still have one of these amps, although I hardly use it any more. It's a great bedroom amp, except for the annoying noise gate...

If your amp has a noise gate, what settings can you adjust on it?

it's easy to adjust the threshold of the noise gate by accident - i think turning the "edit" knob while the bypass button is held down does it, or something. that's probably the problem. i'm not 100% sure, haven't used an AD50VT for years perhaps someone with better memory than me can correct this if it's not completely correct.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Yeah, can you post a pic of the panel on the vt30?

you have a noise gate thats kind of hidden.
thats your manual, unless you have an ad30vt.
google it, its simple to use you just need to find out which buttons control the gate

He has the vt30.

This is from the manual

Adjusting the noise reduction
Here’s how to adjust the way in which noise is suppressed.
NOTE: Noise reduction is specified individually for each program. In Preset mode
or Channel Select mode, the noise reduction setting will be lost if you switch to
a different program or to Manual mode or turn off the power before saving.
1. Press the [BYPASS] switch to make the BYPASS LED light.
2. While holding down the [TAP] switch, turn the [EDIT] knob to adjust the sensitivity
of the noise reduction. Turning the knob toward the right will produce stronger noise
reduction. If the knob is turned all the way to the left, noise reduction will be off and
will have no effect.
NOTE: Depending on the guitar you’re using, raising the noise reduction too
high may cause notes to be cut off.
3. If you want to use an effect, press the [BYPASS] switch to make the BYPASS LED go dark.
