    This amp has two inputs, a 0dB and -15dB. What is it useful for? In my band, I use -15dB when I'm playing more in the pocket and 0dB when i'm playing out more--is that wrong? Also, how do you work the effects? I had a really nice fuzz effect, but it is gone now and I can't get it back on my footswitch. I do have a chorus programmed onto one of the knobs however.

    The 0 and -15 inputs are for weaker and hotter basses. Typically a hotter active bass will be best in the -15.

    As far as the fuzz, I bet you were using "square wave", or maybe one of the synthbass settings. You can get a really cool "Soft Machine" style fuzz bass out of the square wave, if you use the adjust control.

    As far as "how", best advice is to re-read the manual. Each effect has a parameter that can be adjusted, along with an effect level. So there are a lot of interactions.
