    Does anyone know how you can save a volume setting on a b2?

    When you first turn it on, it'll remember the last patch you were using, but it always defaults to the original volume (which is way too loud when playing with headphones) Also, when you scroll through the patches, the volumes change with each individual one, making it troublesome to stop and adjust the volume everytime you want to change an effect.

    Anyone? :help:

    The global volume always defaults to 80% when you turn the unit on. No way to adjust that.

    But you can set a pre-amp level and save it. Go to the ZNR module and the first knob from left to right adjusts ZNR level, second knob is your wet/dry mix, and the third knob adjusts the pre-amp level.

    Thanks. I'll give it a shot. Messing around with it, I discovered you can lower the volume on a patch and then save it. Unfortunately it doesn't save the drum machine volume. I guess you can't have everything :)
  4. The new B3 solves all of these issues... But still uses the same drum beats...
