Re: Is this possible?

i used to have stuff like this happen with cheesy batteries.  I don't even know if the ax300g runs on batteries.  before i got the voodoolab pedal power plus i switched to Maha rechargables.  Wonderful batteries, last a long time, hold their charge till pretty much it's gone.  They don't slowly dwindle like some batteries do.  Esp non Maha rechargables.   The dwindling thing drove me nuts for a while trying to figure it out.

could also be a cheesed or fading power supply?

I have a Korg AX300G effects pedal that I love dearly but it seems to
behave quite strangely when playing for a while.  It seems to me that
while I'm playing the volume begins to fluctuate.  Not abruptly, but
slowly so half an hour in I feel like I can barely hear that chain of
effects even though the second chain that is coming from the same
guitar signal is just fine.  What's strange is that it seems that the
volume will come in and out like this over the course of continuous
playing such that I'm not really sure what's happening.  Is it
possible that a piece of gear could have volume problems like this or
should I be looking for some other culprit?

Confused as is often the case,


Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
