- Can I play any sound out of VStomp Amp with my MIDI keyboard?
- Why do I hear so muchhum?
1. If you’re using a laptop, a low quality power supply unit can lead to ground loop noise. Disconnect your laptop from your power supply and see if running on battery resolves the issue.
2. Try to connect your devices to a single power outlet (e.g. a multi-outlet power strip).
3. If ground lifting is supported on your audio device, lifting the ground wire may help (the function will probably be shown as switch with a “GND LIFT” sign).
4. Using new/better instrument cables will help reduce hum noise.
5. Make sure the grounding of your guitar/bass is well soldered.
- Why do I only hear my clean guitar signal?
1. Make sure that your audio interface driver is up to date. For Windows users, if you’re using an onboard soundcard, please try NOT to use WASAPI, MME or DirectSound drivers, as these cards are not designed for professional use. Try using the ASIO4ALL driver instead.
2. Make sure your monitor settings are correct: For example, turn the Monitor Source (if there is one) knob on your audio interface fully clockwise to Playback.
- Why there is no output?
1. Make sure your audio hardware is operational.
2. Make sure you’re using the latest driver or most compatible driver for your device.
3. Make sure that you set proper input and output routings in the VStomp Amp Settings menu. If you’re not sure about your settings, click “Test” to generate a test tone.
- Why am I getting some cracking noise?
Start out with a buffer size of 512 as a general rule. Sometimes on some modern multicore CPUs you may get better results with lower latency settings than with higher settings.
