Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My bogner shiva was working fine until I tried to use my effects loop. I ran my pedals into my effects loop and noticed it sucked the tone a little bit. When I unplugged the effects from the effects loop I noticed a hum coming from my amp, even without anything plugged into amp. The hum goes away when plugging into effects loop, and when going to clean channel.

SOURCE: Crate VC6212 Amp

Yes the tube could be what is called microphonic. In other words it behaves like a mic and feeds some signal back into the amp. These are usually 12ax7 tubes and are not expensive. Start with replacing that tube.
Keep us posted.

You should try resetting the ipod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons down until you see an apple appear on the screen or for at least ten seconds. If nothing happens by resetting it without being connected to your computer; I would try restoring it using itunes i've copy and pasted those steps below for you

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection
as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may
need to be downloaded to your computer. Download and install the latest version of iTunes
if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your
computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came
with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the
Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will
see information about your iPod appear in the
Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted
with one or more restore options that may prompt
iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod
Software. The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software
version already on iPod. Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod
Software version already on iPod even though a
newer version is available. Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear
prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and
password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen
indicating that the first stage of the restore
process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen
with instructions specific to the iPod model you
are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect
it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to
older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to
computer to complete restore (typically applies
newer iPod models). During the stage 2 of the restore process, the
iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress
bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to
the computer or iPod Power adapter during this
stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see
since the backlight on the iPod display may be
off. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete
and the iPod is connected to the computer, the
iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking
you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences
similar to when you connected your iPod for the
first time.

If after a reset and restore it still will not work while not connected; I would try putting it in a DRY bowl of rice over night. You may still have moisture in the ipod. Usually rice works pretty good for this issue. Hopefully, the ipod wasn't damaged and this helped you out. Cheers :)

Peavey classic chorus 1991 -how do you connect a distortion pedal the power amp jacks at rear tried affects loop in front bid drop in power-do you connect same way as effects loop with send /return

Pedals operate at a different level then rack units that go in the effects loop.
It needs to go in front of the amp input. Guitar to pedal to amp input.

Do you run a compressor in the effects loop?

Yes. I run all my modulation pedals into the compressor, then into the MXR Ten Band EQ, then into the effects loop. But it also works in the front of the amp as well to tighten up your distortion. Try it both ways and find the sound you like best.

By ading in the harmony signals you are combining 3 signals so gain is probably going to be high you will have to reduce it before it goes to the amp or turn down the input gain of the amp.

NEVER use a pedal in the external effects loop of an amp as the levels are wrong.

You put the pedal where???? The guitar goes through the pedal. This is NOT to be used in an external effects loop of an amp. The signal levels are wrong as the effects loop is LINE LEVEL and the pedal is for instrument signal levels. Move the pedal to before the inout of your amp as it is designed to be used.

How To Use The effect Loop?

The effect loop is to use exteernal effect module... It is NOT to use guitar pedals !!!! The signals are line levels, NOT guitar type levels. An example of a device might be an Alesis Quadraverb. You take the effect send jack and run it into the inout of the effects module and the output of the effects module into the effects return jack. Many try to use guitar pedals and massive distortion results because levels are too high for the pedals.

The loop and the manual tone store functionality !

Usually the loop in is used with an EXTERNAL effects module where the audio signal is "looped" out through the external effect module and then back to the power amp to drive the speaker in the cabinet. The LOOP IN jack would receive signal from the EFFECTS module OUT jack.

The source to go TO the effects module INPUT may come from a jack such as preamp out, or sometimes the same loop jack if it usess the TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) connection method.

If you do not have an external effects module, all this is a moot point in your case.

Upper thread tension wire broke off!!!

The part that is broken is called a check spring. It keeps the thread away from the point of the needle until the needle pierces the fabric. You should probably take the machine into a reputable repair shop.
