I believe this pedal and the Source Audio company to be at the forefront of effects innovations and versatility. However I have bought a Manta Filter almost a year ago based on watching every single youtube video that reviews this pedal and reading threads here and elsewhere and heavily GASing for it. Ever since I got it the pedal does not 'perform' or sound anything like those videos. I use an active bass and I have tried a compressor before no compression a gated fuzz a russian muff style fuzz an overdrive a booster a distortion pedal. default normal mode settings and all those 12 filters barely work , I went into extended mode and nothing changed but a scooping of my clean signal. I changed many of the settings watched youtube videos almost memorized the manual, and im in control and proficient in changing my right hand dynamics barely any effect. Please help.
