Global on/off switch

  • Spillover is enabled or disabled across in the Global menu. Note that enabling it still requires additional steps to make it work.

Explanation

  • Read the manuals.

Limitations

  • Multi Delay and Megatap Delay don’t support spillover.
  • Spillover may be affected when switching between X/Y states, if drastically different algorithms exist between the two states. For example, if one scene has a Digital Delay and the next scene uses a Tape Delay, spillover will probably not function correctly as these modes use different algorithms.
  • User: "I have two patches that both has delay blocks disabled and when I switch between these patches via MFC the delay spillover sometimes kicks in really loud." Cliff: "This can happen if you rapidly switch between presets many times. The unit requires a small amount of time between preset changes to clear unused buffer space. This is done as a background task." source

Preventing volume bursts when switching presets

  • If you use Mix and Level to dial in the effects level, the volume level of the reverb and/or delay trails may change when switching presets. This can be prevented by keeping Mix and Level at fixed values, and using Input Gain to set the desired effects level. source
