Why is my dual recto's clean 'orange' channel is nosier than my gain 'red' channel?
Even with the decimator in the loop (and yes, its set for both channels to use the loop) there is just a ton of noise that is killed my the decimator stomp box in the loop, but not on the clean channel.
similar chan volume, low gain, 3/4 master for both.
Bad preamp tubes? Bad power? Are you running a power conditioner?
