XP Deus “Pro programs” DEEP Vs HOT


Hello there thanks for joining me
everyone now I just want to have a quick talk about 2 programs on your XP Deus
menu we call them the “PRO” programs first of all you’ve got program number 6
which is DEEP and then you’ve got program number 9 which is HOT now
these programs take a little bit of basic understanding of the Deus to get
the most out of them so that’s what this video is all about we’re just going to
talk quickly about these 2 programs let’s start with program number 6 the
deep program on your XP Deus menu it’s a factory preset right away you’ll notice
there’s a slight difference because the deep program uses a 2 tone audio
compared to the Deus fast and the GMP which use a 3 tone audio
Why 2 tone ? well we think a 2 tone audio will give you a better target ID between
ferrous and non-ferrous at depth and also it’s a lot easier to use and
understand – going onto the ground balance now the ground balance is slightly
different on the deep program it defaults at 88 rather than the
conventional 90 this is to just lift the ground a little bit more adding to this
bit of extra depth now a lot of the depth on this program comes from
internal filtering which is not an adjustment you can make – this is within
the machine so what are the pitfalls with using the deep program now I call these pitfalls but they’re not really pitiful they are misunderstandings if I
have someone come up to me in the field or send me an email to say my
Deus is a little bit unstable it’s a little bit erratic what am I doing
wrong 9 times out of 10 these guys are
using the deep program and their field won’t allow it you need to understand
that the deep program is a powerful program you can’t just use it on any
site and your machine will tell you if you’re using the wrong program because
if you’re in deep and the machine becomes unstable – Spitty and poppy
it’s probably a good indication you should choose another program or make
some adjustments within the deep program so let’s have a quick look at the deep
program menu first of all let’s start off with sensitivity preset 90
down frequency that’s using a low frequency as you can see there if you
use in the black coil Iron volume 3 we’re not going to
bother with that reactivity now this is an important one when it comes to depth
this is using reactivity 2 which is quite low it’s a slow reactivity giving
you better punch in the ground and this is one of the reasons why your machine
might be a little bit unstable if using the deep program – audio response 4 this
is reasonably high which is gonna give your small or deep targets a bit of an
audio lift… a bit more punch to the audio notch we’re not going to bother doing
that and now we’re on disc which is 5.5 slightly lower than your conventional
goldmax power – Deus fast etc but I just want to talk to you about a couple of
adjustments you might want to make if you’re deep program is a little bit
erratic …for sure if the deep program works fine out in your field you don’t need to
adjust anything you’re good to go The adjustments I suggest making to calm the
deep program down is firstly go into sensitivity if you’re using the black
coil go into expert and then you’ll see TX power and that defaults at 3 you
might just want to drop that down to 2 or even 1 just to make that machine a
little bit more settled and then I’ll go down to reactivity you’ve got reactivity
2 there as we talked about just bump it up one or two notches 2.5 is a good
all-rounder or even 3 and you might find that this settles the deep program
on your field but the deep programs internal filtering does make it a little
bit cracky a little bit spitty on iron whereas other programs may be a bit
quieter on iron so just bear that in mind when you’re using the deep program so
now we come to the question when would I use the deep program, personally well
obviously if my field conditions would allow me using the deep program with a
smooth operation I’d use it then but also I’d use the deep program if there was
a little patch where I knew there was some good finds to be had perhaps finds
have been made there in the past and you want to go and hoover up I’d use it then
to get the last of the treasure and put up with a little bit of spitting and
popping but you know you’re working the machine on the edge when you getting
this sort of feedback so that’s my little talk about program number 6
deep let’s have a talk about program number 9 HOT now we’re on the hot
program that this is different in many ways compared to your deep program for a
start the audio is completely different this uses an audio called full tones
now what full tones actually does is it gives you an audio response on a sliding
scale so you’re low conductive targets such as iron, the ground coke, foil give a
low tone whereas your higher conductive targets give a high tone this is
particularly good when you’re searching parks or something like that when you
want to “cherry pick” just the high conductive targets we’ve got a lot of
good feedback from the USA where they’re looking for the big silver American
coins the hot program sings out nice and high on these particular targets
also going into the menu we’re using a disc at -6.4 now this is one of the
few programs we can run a completely open discrimination and still hear the
iron so while we’re using a -6.4 discrimination well it’s because we want
to hear everything including the ground so we’ve got the ground
we’ve got iron we’ve got mid conductors by the mid tone high conductors by the
high tone we’ve got all this information coming in now if you didn’t want to hear
the ground for example all you do is turn the discrimination up to -2
something like that and then you’ll cut out the ground feedback but for the
professional detectorists this is a brilliant program because you get an
audio picture of the ground, you can hear when the ground changes and you can hear
when you’re walking over an iron contaminated area so let’s have a quick
look at the hot program menu first of all sensitivity going down to
frequency now you can see there that the hot program uses a higher frequency
compared to the deep program let’s go back down
iron volume…we don’t need that because we’ve got our own iron tone
within the full tones – reactivity we’re a little bit faster were at reactivity 3
which is telling us this program is going to be good amongst iron and
several targets close to each other audio response is set at 3 which gives
you a really good perception of size and depth for example a deep target or a small
target will give a quieter sound compared to a large shallow target we’ve
got lots of videos on these subjects back in the XP archives notch we’re not
interested in that but we have got a video on notch I’ll put a link up below –
discrimination there we go -6.4 and to get to the tones you just go into the
discrimination menu press expert and you’ll see all the tones there you’ve
got two tones full tones pitch you’ve got a wide range of tones you can adjust
but because this is an open discrimination full tones as I said
earlier works absolutely perfectly and we’re back in the detect screen and here
we’ve got the XY screen which I haven’t really talked about the XY screen much
but this gives you a really good indication of your target, if you get a
dead straight line is very often a good target such as a coin or a pure metal if
you get a disruptive line it’s quite often iron or something you don’t want
so what are the pitfalls with using the hot program… well if you’re new to
detecting or new to the Deus you may perceive all this feedback as noise and
you may say this program is too noisy for you, it’s not noise it’s actual
feedback so once you learn to take this feedback onboard you will begin to work as
one with the machine but apart from that there’s no other pitfalls using a hot
program you either love it or hate it personally it’s one of my favorites one
of its advantages is the feedback for example if you’re on a new site and you
don’t know much about it you can use the hot program to get this audio picture of
what’s going on and you can quickly identify the areas of high ground
mineralization or iron and as we know this is very often where the good finds
are made with all these programs we really do encourage you to make your own
adjustments and get a feel for the Deus and find the best program that suits you
we quite often hear people say oh well I like the hot program but it isn’t that
deep well that’s simply down to adjustments just because it isn’t
adjusted like the deep program – now if you want a deep hot program all you have
to do is use the deep program as a platform so using the deep filters put
the hot Settings into the deep program and save it and then you’ve got a deep
hot program we really do encourage you guys to go out there and have a little
play over your Deus if you make some adjustments to a program.. a factory
program and you’re a little bit worried you’ve messed things up just turn it off
and on again and every time it will revert back to the factory presets the
only way you can keep your “custom program” in that menu is by saving it so
don’t be frightened to make a few adjustments when you’re out in the field
ok this video is getting a bit long now but with all that said and done I just
want to get quickly out into the field and just let you hear what the deep and
the hot programs sound like it’s a little bit muddy over there I’m not
going to go over there we’ve got some stubble over this side so let’s go as you can see that is clearly an ironsound because we’ve got the line going
this way if it was a non-ferrous target the line will be going this way so this
Iron sound let’s go into the deep program and see what it sounds like
here we go deep program Were still getting a similar visual information but
can you hear the deep program is letting that iron crack through a little bit
because it is a punchy program Now that is a textbook signal I’ll let you look
at the screen it’s coming up at 82 and it’s got a dead
straight line pinpointing is an absolute doddle on the X P as we said many times
before really short Wiggles really short ones draw the coil back at the same time
and when the target disappears is right under that X P logo its on the nose of the
coil here we go again draw it back under the nose that’s a nice solid sound dig them all
day ah there it is look it just looks like a very worn Victorian coin or something like
that but listen to that sound that is absolutely lovely and that’s using the hot
program here’s an interesting one it’s got sort of a squelchy signal I don’t
think that’s iron because it’s just slightly above the iron tone – Can you
hear that’s trying to come through a little bit let’s go onto the Deep program
see what that sounds like number 6 deep do you know what I think
personally there’s a non-ferrous target there very close to some iron but it
could also be deep because when a target gets out of depth range, or almost out of
depth range the ground starts to consume the signal and the target will turn to
iron eventually so it could be just on that fringe depth- here we go let’s have
a look at the screen we’re getting a sort of an iron loop but it’s yeah you see I’m getting the
numbers these are the targets we should really be investigating back to the hot
program see I’m getting a positive number but it’s slightly out of range
for the meter to make a calculated decision well as we said so many times
before the Spade is our best discriminator let’s have a look but
before I dig this target out it might be worth pointing out that not all highly
conductive targets are big some very very small targets can also be highly
conductive it depends on what sort of metal they’re made up from – once again if
you can pinpoint it easily your in with a chance it’s out and it is a low conductor just
have a look at that meter reading now its out – onto the Deep program here we go nice and clean that two tone really sorts
it out what is it well we know it’s non-ferrous anyway I’m guessing it’s a coin or
some sort of a token but again it’s it’s not high conductive target it’s I’d say
a mid-range conductive target well guys I hope that’s given you a little insight
into the deep and hot “PRO” programs and giving you a little bit of incentive
there to go out and make your own adjustments to suit your field but until
then be lucky and we see you on the next one
