    Any owners of the Sansamp three channel programmable unit have any tips on adjusting the sounds? I find that this pedal worked ok when I originally bought it, but it seems that now when I have a sound I like, it does not seem to change at all when I adjust the settings. I know that its not in bypass mode.
    As a result, I try to reset it to the factory settings then adjust my sounds on each channel from there, but adding more drive or presence doesnt seem to do anything, even turning the gain know doesnt seem to do much. Getting the unit back to the original three settings seems to be a chore, as I have only been able to do this once.
    I do not have a battery in it, I am using a AC adaptor on it.
    I have attempted a search on line and here on talkbass, but havent come up with anything, so if any one has any tips or can point me to a good online reference, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    In the manual it says that the 3 original settings are the ones that are described as "Fat Tube", "Flip Top" & "Distorted Bass".

    But you can reset the whole machine by holding down the footsitches 1 and 3 and simultaneously powering up the unit (plugging in the adapter cable or plugging in a jack into the input)

    As for factory sounds, I like all my sounds a bit "lighter" on the "Blend" pot.

    I don't think this unit hasn't got the same MOJO as the original one. It is not just as "revolutionary".
