Not for the faint hearted....
The ability to distinguish between a signal and a false signal would soon merge and become impossible...
But, you need to try these things to get the full experience....

May not be for me either,just wondered how much more you may get using it,but if its annoying then maybe a little discrim will help.

Does take a while to get use to, detector almost ended up in farmers pond at one stage but stick with it. Once you pick it up, you won't look back

I use a similar programme with the SE and can't fault it you still hear some iron but a quick glance at the screen sorts that out. I wouldn't dream of using an EXP with no discrim on it.
A big mistake a lot of people make is by having the disc too high if there is any falsing wind it down until you have a steady threshold tone.
Not for the faint hearted or the impatient !
Earphones must have volume control for this programme and not Koss.
Recover-deep on : fast off
iron mask-31 or all metal 32 when in a very productive hotspot.
sensitivity-manual and keep it in 16 till your competent enough to increase it, i use 32 full whack anywhere.
Dig all low tones, medium, and high smooth tones,the highest pitch tone is the sound you get from a 1p or 2p coin 1970-80s,iron is a similar higher pitch shrieky noise, uneven not smooth etc but takes time to get used too so you have to be prepared to get through the learning curve which can take some time to learn.
If you want quiet and not much noise then dont even attempt to use this programme because as you get used to it and up the sense it gets noisy.
Swing slow 4 secs a sweep and 8 secs on hot spots and try keep the coil just scraping the surface,if you ar"nt using at least 2 or 3 coil covers a year then your not low enough.
This program can take months to learn and perseverance is the key.
