I have an interesting dilemna. I currently am using this setup: When my Meatball is working correctly, the Machine barely gets any input gain happening. When I turn the Meatball off, the Machine works fine. But then when I turn the Meatball back on, it won't trigger correctly - it sounds like it's not getting enough input gain. I'm using a passive bass with some fairly hot P bass type pickups. I've heard somewhere that I might be suffering from some capacitance build up somewhere. If this is the case, how can I keep if from happening again? Any ideas as to what my problem is?
