    Basic program set up.

    New to DEUS, and have found a couple of bottle caps and pull tabs I didn't know I had, anyway my question is, if you were to set up a basic program for general use of just looking into the ground, what would it be?

    Full tones
    8 Khz
    90 sensitivity
    TX 2
    Reactivity 2, silencer 2
    Audio response 4
    Ground balance "tracking", ground notch 2 points under the true GB reading.

    I use this program at every new site I go to and make adjustments from there...good luck

    His program looks good except I would never use ground notch it knocks out targets. I have tested that feature and have a couple videos up showing it doing so.

    I thought your test was done with the ground notch fully engaged? My ground is pretty mild, usually only ground notch 4 to 6 points or down to 86 to 84. If I didn't I'd be digging hot rocks, this minor GN silences the hot rocks.....i do agree, and never have, fully engaged GN.

    It was fully engaged in the in the first video but in the second one with the gold earring it is not and is actually 3 points above number and knocks the target out. The guy who taught it would have no negative effect was flat out wrong... I know another tester for deus and he confirmed my findings BUT never publicly admitted it either. That setting is BAD and I know it was spread it had no negative effects but that myth NEEDS to be corrected. This is the video that shows the ground notch doing so and its still 4 points above actual ground number. https://youtu.be/bosQv3rBLbg

    Anyone's "basic program" is really going to be quite unique to where they hunt, and what they hunt for. Your Deus already came with a number of presets, each designed for different situations. Of those presets, I would guess that most experienced users would fall back on Deus Fast if they had to use one of the presets (aside from beach and gold hunters), and most is it as the template to start their own custom programs.

    IMO, you will be much further ahead to pick one of those presets, then tweak it for your own situation as you begin to learn what the various settings do, than to rely on someone else's idea of a good program.

    I will add one more thing using the basic programs is fine BUT you need to pick a tone audio ONE and just use that to start with or you will never learn the machine switching back and forth between the factory presets as they use different tone setups . I suggest full tones it takes time but provides the most info but which ever you choose just choose so you wont be spinning your wheels.

    Preset programs have different frequencies as well, which will also affects the tones. Stick with one tone and one frequency for a while....i edited Deus Fast as stated above and saved it in a custom program slot. As CD stated, full tones is the tone to learn....id avoid 18 kHz as well.....it really lights up iron and until you learn what iron sounds like in 18 you will be digging a lot of it and get frustrated. I made this mistake when I first got mine.
