Elmy's Magic System using your own pattern on the etrac

Well-known member
Andy sabisch lives about 50 minutes from me. I want to run it by his house when i get time. He has a pretty nice test garden. Elmy thank you so much for taking time to answer my questions. Have you ever had speaker problem with it? Something with the 1/4 headphone jack is funky with it. Whenever the headphone jack goes low volume so does the detector. I can fiddle with some headphones and the jack and it'll work right. It seems like an awesome detector though.
no problems with my etrac....Andy S will help you out....probably more open pattern than mine.....but his is proven and well used by etracer's everywhere.
Go for it !

I tried his and bills trasy pattern dug iron nails. Manual sensitivity was 30. I had it in multi conduct. When i put it in ferrous it just sounds like iron tones. I don't understand the ferrous and conduct tone settings yet. What is the best way to run it in iron?

For a new user.....two tone ferrous....everything that is in your pattern and is iron will give a low tone .....good targets will give a high tone.
you dig fewer nails with TTF.

so TTF is setting it to 2 tones and selecting ferrous instead of conduct correct?

These are the patterns that are already on it. What is the difference between my modes and my patterns?

pattern 6 is my silver pattern..... select it and quick mask is the magic reverse of the silver pattern already loaded.

Pattern are patterns only and modes are settings and patterns.

Hay Elmy, thanks a bunch.
diggininms, unless I missed it here is how to reverse a hunt pattern and get into QM.
Go to menu arrow key down to combine click on that.
Arrow key down to where you have your hunt pattern saved 1 thru 6.
Click on arrow / check button 2 times, this button is located on the front panel lower right corner.
Click on the QM button and it will ask you to load to quickmask, Click yes, it should be there.
When Elmy showed this to me I did it several times with some of the factory installed programs just to try and get loaded in my head. Then I carried a cheat sheet with me while hunting.
Okay with Elmy helping you are on the fast track.

Thamk you for helping me as well. Elmy seems very very knowledgeable. I have taken pictures of some of this so i'll have it out in the field.

I got out and tried these patterns. I got alot of false signals. It could be me though. The threshold goes quiet for a while but there is a lot of trash and iron. I switch ove to quick mask and still got tones so didn't dig them. Still got some learning to do. I do like the etrac. Just don't know why I was getting so many false signals. It was in auto sensitivity +3 and was quiet. I did a reset and that seemed to help.
