Not sure yet whether we'll make this a Simplex Forum or a Classroom forum or both...

Hi guys, I was wrong to ask this question in this thread. When I wanted to delete it, it can no longer do it, but continuing with the question I asked, I must say yes. Threshold volume and sensitivity can be adjusted separately. I already have my Nokta SimplexHi guys. Soon I am considering buying a Simplex, but I have a question. Although I have looked for information about it, it has not clarified anything.
Where I live now, it is volcanic terrain with a lot of magnetite, magemite positive and negative rocks. The ground balance is not constant. The background tone tends to fluctuate, but you end up getting used to your ear and your brain.
The metal detectors here, in discrimination mode, are not going well, so I have to use them in VCO all metal mode, with a slight hum.
My question is this:
Can I use the Simplex in all metal mode, with a slight hum in the background tone?
I know the answer is yes (according to the manual) but I go further ...
Can I adjust the volume of the background tone, regardless of the sensitivity?
According to the manual, when you turn up the sensitivity, you turn up the volume. This is the part that is not clear to me.
Can anyone check it out?
I live on an island and there are no detector shops here, so I can't do it myself.
It's a beginner machine that punches above its weight into intermediate class. It's not very good at saltwater beaches (you'll be fine in freshwater though), and it will be falsing on some nails in the yards. If you can afford it, I suggest getting the Legend – you can run it as a simple "turn on and go" machine akin to Simplex, then once you learn more about it, you'll be able to mess with advanced settings without buying a new detector.Hello. Considering simplex for beach and yards. Understand you’ll pick LOTS of iron. Can I avoid so much junk without eliminating jewelry etc? New to this, 80 yrs old! Need suggestions. Thank you all.
