Plumbutter 2- Snare and Mixer

Post by merlatte » Sat Sep 01, 2018 8:03 pm

Hi. So I got a Plumbutter this week and it’s been crazy fun to learn. The only issue I seem to be having is that Mixer doesn’t seem to be able to mute the snare drum completely- it’s soft at full CCW but definitely still there. All of the other sections are silent at full CCW. Is this normal?

It seems to be normal, but annoying.

That's a bummer. I shot Peter an email and will update if this isn't a normalcy.

Its normal. I simply unplug, so easy with bananas.

I bit of noise/bleed from the snare is worth it when using the dust to trigger the man with red steam.

the snare on my pb2 suddenly becomes very quiet, near inaudible, while in use. mixer level is fully cw. not sure why, doesn’t matter what I have patched into the green jack. seems to get quieter throughout use. should I bother Blasser with this? any advice on what might be causing the drastic signal drop would be very much appreciated. I’m using 9V battery for power.

9v battery can't drive the snare enough, all other parts are fine with it, tho (as far as i know).
