    Play acoustic - guitar being distorted by vocal preset when using Hit button

    The vocal sounds great, the guitar (electro acoustic) sounds great...

    Until press the hit button. The harmonies work well but now the guitar is being picked up by the mic (SM58) and fed through the vocal harmony preset creating horrible guitar!

    What am I doing wrong? I have tried factory resets as I don't think this was a problem at first but they do not cure the problem.

    Hi Colin,
    First, does this happen anywhere you play? I had this in a small practice room where the sound was bouncing off the walls; therefore, the mic was picking this up. I tried several things:
    1- went outside and practiced - stopped the issue, but I can’t practice outside. Just wanted to see that the areas I Play may have no issue since the guitar sound carries outwards.
    2- turned down the mic gain.
    3- put a soundhole plug in my guitar.

    Try and see if any of these help.
