Play Mode Controls (cont.) Blend Turn Edit Turn the Edit knob without pressing on it and the balance between pickup and Image is adjusted. A setting of P = 100% Pickup signal 0 = a 50/50 pickup/Image blend I = 100% Image signal. Suggestions • For live performance try backing off the Image by setting Blend to about 2 or 3 (about 65% pickup). • For recording, try blending in more Image fora realistic acoustic sound. Automatic Anti-Feedback Use this search-and-destroy Anti-Feedback circuit in addition to Phase to control feedback during a performance. F Aura’s automatic Anti-Feedback circuit can apply up to three separate notch ﬁ lters, which are very precise tone controls that reduce only a tiny piece of the audio band. When activated, the ﬁ lter locates and reduces the problematic resonances associated with feedback.
While the Anti-Feedback control is very effective, it’s best if you spend sometime while setting up before a performance and catch any issues before you begin to play. With some practice, you’ll ﬁ nd you can also use it to “ﬁ x any resonant notes that may standout in a particular venue. Using the automatic Anti-Feedback control. Press + hold both Edit and Volume for 2 seconds. The tuner display will ﬂ ash ab b to indicate it is searching for the ﬁ rst feedback. Turn up the Volume, then either dampen the strings while tapping the body or play the troublesome note until the feedback begins. The ﬁ lter will automatically identify and eliminate the feedback. The “1” in the display will now light solid. At this point, you may continue to turn up your Volume as instep to identify up to two more problematic resonances. Each is indicated via a ﬂ ashing “2” or “3” during the search, in turn lighting solid when the resonance has been identiﬁ ed. You may press the Volume knob at anytime to cancel the search. The circuit will hold the notched frequencies) in memory until the process is repeated.
