And it seems to work as advertised, but at the same time, if I've got any heavy sounding chords playing, it seems to muffle out all other stuff that I'm playing. Am I not using the settings properly, or is the quality of my amp the biggest factor?

My amp is a Roland Microcube. If I'm not mistaken, it's a 2W amplifier. I get the feeling that this amp is my problem.

Record chords at a lower volume.

That's all I can suggest!

Edit - a 2W amp?

It's my first amp (only start playing like 4 1/2 months ago) and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. It's super portable!

This pedal works best in an effects loop...but that amp most likely lacks one.

The same thing happens to me when I have it in my guitar line in, but only if I am on a gain channel (as in, its overdriving AFTER the RC-20).

So my suggested solutions:
1.) lower the gain/take it off the gain channel on the amp
2.) adjust the "level" and "inst" knobs on the unit (try lowering both first, you might be exceeding the headroom of the amp)
3.) play with more consistent dynamics (don't play heavy chords)

Ultimately, its probably the quality/wattage of the amp that will affect it most.
Hope that helped a little.

I'll try that. I usually have my amp set on it's clean setting, but with the gain cranked up. I'll take a lot of the gain off and maybe it'll help.
