      Hey guys, just picked up a Timefactor and I'm running into a problem. When i plug it into the front of my amp it functions perfectly, but when i run the Timefactor through the FX loop of my Mesa Mark V i get a lot of feedback? Just wondering what i can do to fix this problem. ANY advice would be most appreciated!

      Happy New Year!

      Hi. I'm new to the Eventide boxes too, but I'm running a TimeFactor and a ModFactor through the effects loops on my Mesa RoadKing.  I'm running the ModFactor through the serial loop and the TimeFactor through the parallel loop and getting good sound from both (as well as being able to switch them out completely with the amp king kontroller footswitch).  Two things I'd suggest to check/try – make sure you have the two switches on the back of the stompbox (InLvl and OutLvl) set to Line (they would have been set to Guitar and Amp out of the box and when you used them in front of the amp).  If thats ok I'd suggest try changing the KillDry setting – that may be causing some issues.  If no joy there, check your manual on the procedure for viewing the input line level and make sure that is not excessive.  Again check the manual for how to adjust the output level and try reducing that level in case its boosting the signal too much into the power amp stage and causing feedback.   Give that a go – would like to hear back if any of those help.

      Hi Jay.

      I tried a post before but I'm not sure if it went through, so this may be a repeat.

      I'm using both a TimeFactor and ModFactor with a Mesa RoadKing and using the effects in the loops without any problems.  Am also new to the Eventide pedals but have a few things worked out. Couple of things to try.  First check that you set the Input and Output level switches on the back of the TimeFactor to line level.  Out of the box they are set to Guitar and Amp respectively and need to be changed when you put it into the loop.  If they are ok, then I'd try changing the KillDry setting and see if that helps. If no difference there, then have a look through your manual for the unit – there is a process there for checking the input level into the stompbox.  If thats ok, try reducing that output level and see if thats perhaps too high and overdriving the loop stage.  Would like to hear how those things go for you.  Hope they assist.
