mic mechanic 2 getting stuck in red light mode..

All of a sudden at rehearsal the other night my mic mechanic 2 would not react to tap tempo, and the red light would just be on.  I'd turn it off and on and it would be fine... minutes later, it would do it again.  I have the power cord that came with, and never experienced this before.  It's also updated with the latest firmware.  Anyone have this experience?  I'm thinking maybe I put a 9 volt in for backup in case it happens again live, and switch the plug out and just use the battery.

Re: mic mechanic 2 getting stuck in red light mode..

Hey! were you using a specific preset when it happened (as in the same preset every time it happened?) 

There's no such thing as too much reverb

no..  I was dialing in different settings, it's the mic mechanic 2.  so it's not really in preset mode.

Hey @AlanSettle,

Can you please conect your pedal to our VoiceSupport 2 application and check out the presets?  My thought is that maybe one of your presets has become corrupt and loading it is messing up the pedal.  For reference, when Cecilie and I say "preset" really we're just referring to the leftmost Echo knob - those Echo 3 styles are treated as "presets" in the pedal while Reverb and Correction are "global" parameters.  Once connected to VoiceSupport 2, take a look at the presets - if you see that any of the presets are blue, that means it's been altered from its factory state and could be the cause of the funky behavior.  You can delete a blue preset to restore them back to their factory state, which is represented with a grey preset.MM2 VS2.png

Re: mic mechanic 2 getting stuck in red light mode..

weird.. I just did that  and I had two out of the three presets in blue.  I just redid the firmware update.. it autmoatically gives me the same two presets in blue and one in grey after that...

Am I supposed to delete those and make them all red and then reapply?

Hey @AlanSettle,

A firmware update will only update the pedal's firmware, it leaves presets and setup data alone.  So yeah just go ahead and delete the blue presets, apply the change, and you should then see them change back to their grey factory state.  Hopefully that fixes the red LED issue you've been experiencing.
