How to set universal volume of effects presets in Voicelive 3

Hi can someone please advise if it is possile to set universal volume for guitar and / or vocal effects in VL3 and if so how to do it using global preset. 

 

BasicallyI don't like how the various guitar effects vary so dramatically in volume and want to retain the various colours / nuances of the respective presets but don't want the volume to vary so radically when I switch between them.

 

The user manual is unclear and not useful in this regard. Please help.

 

thanks

Hey @summerinfrance,

You can use the "Mix" menu to adjust the global level of your guitar signal, however this does not to normalize the output of all presets.  Using different presets with different guitar paths will almost always result in different output levels from the guitar chain, which requires the user to manually adjust the output of the amp and drive blocks to pair well with the output levels of other presets (something we do when creating factory and cloud presets).  Using the compressor will help you achieve uniformity, but this will need to be done in each preset you're using and ultimately is a manual adjustment in itself.  Basically, no there is no automatic way of normalizing the guitar output of all presets, it's up to the user to adjust the output levels for each preset they create.
