DropTune: Why does the DropTune sound weird when I play quietly through an acoustic guitar with a pickup or an electric guitar?


If a guitarist plays an acoustic guitar with a pickup or an electric guitar very quietly through the DropTune pedal, sometimes he/she may hear the guitar's own strings underneath the sound coming from the amplifier. This may cause the guitarist to think it's the DropTune pedal creating an octave. Turning up the amplifier solves this by masking the guitar's own string sound.



DropTune: How does the TOGGLE switch work?


When the EFFECT switch is engaged, the TOGGLE switch is enabled. Pressing the TOGGLE switch puts the pedal into bypass, which sends the unaffected guitar signal direct to the output. Releasing the TOGGLE switch puts the DropTune back into Effect Mode, which is the selected pitch setting.



DropTune: The tone is distorted. How do I fix that?


Try adjusting the Trim Control on the rear panel. If it is set too high, the signal will clip. If it is set too low, noise may appear in the signal. In addition, if you have any effects pedals in front of the DropTune in the effects chain, check their output level to see if any of them is sending an output signal hot enough to distort the DropTune.



DropTune: Why does the DropTune pedal have a USB port?


The mini USB port on each DropTune pedal lets the user download any Morpheus software update directly into the pedal, should an update become available. Download instructions are provided by clicking on the software update. Any updates that become available will be posted on the Morpheus website.



DropTune: Where should I put the DropTune pedal in the effects chain on my pedal board?


We recommend putting the DropTune pedal at the beginning of your effects chain. The only thing in front of the DropTune should be your tuner. Even a wah pedal should come after the DropTune.
