VoiceSolos: When the clip LEDs flash am I causing damage?

Question

When the clip leds flash on my VoiceSolo, am I causing damage?

Answer

Brief flashes of the clip led is ok, even if the flashes occur frequently. There are two things that can make the LED flash:

  1. The input channel has run out of headroom and is near clipping.
  2. The limiter that protects the amp and speaker has engaged

Regarding point #1, the input circuitry for VoiceSolo can handle very large input signals but overloads can still occur from time to time.
