    I've never quite understood the need to calibrate the GT-100. What does this accomplish?

    Thank for your offer Jive_Turkey but I managed to get hold of a copy.

    There was a massive difference in my guitars.

    My Ibanez Prestige RG1570z needed setting to -8 and my Fender American deluxe strat needed setting to +3. Quite a difference!

    Something to do with the N3 noiseless pickups on the strat I suppose?

    The GT-100 requires the system input level to be set to give the right amount of headroom for better dynamic control of you amp sims when using the guitar volume control.
    Many tend to drive the input to the A/D conversion at full steam, which on the GT, drives the input into compression and limiting the dynamics afterwards.
    The calibration patch uses and Assign "input level" as a trigger to visually display the EXP pedal switch led when a 100% threshold is "just" reached on the hardest strumming.
    This is the equivalent of a clip indicator, as the GT-100 wants for the lack of any level metering.

    If you want a handy place to bookmark the procedure it's out there on Youtube as well.
