    Simple question, can't find answer in owners manual. I always unplug the 1/4'' jacks when done playing but I am curious if it drains the battery if I leave the jacks plugged in.
    Does leaving the 1/4'' plug in on the PBDDI drain the battery. Should I continue to unplug my bass jack?
    Thanks!
