    okay so on my behringer head, it has a VU moniter.

    so what does it do?
    what happens when it goes into the red?
    how do i keep this from happening?
    what causes the needle to move? volume?




    :help:

    It's pretty much like a clip/limit light.

    When it goes into the red, your pushing the amp too hard and it's clipping. To stop that, you turn the gain down.

    Plug into the Active input and see if that helps. If its still maxing out the needle, your pedals may be turned up too high.
