Programmes to add

Post by Dawezy » Sun Nov 10, 2019 5:39 pm

Hi all

I’m quite new to the Deus I’ve had it for a while and only used the standard programs which seem to be working fine, I have the full version up to date with version 5 and looking for a couple more programmes to add.
I’ve heard of sprite, ultimate and sonar? But don’t know the settings.
Can anyone please share the settings or know of a really good one to try.

Easiest way is to search the names of the programs you want and watch the YouTube videos by XP Guru, Gary.
I personally use his Ultimate programme and find it a greta all rounder.
I am not at home at the moment, so cannot post the Ultimate settings at this time, but if you have problems finding the video, come back to me and I will assist.....

What’s good for one site or part of the country might not be good for another matey.

But..

From fast...

Disc 0. Set tones and break points as your own preference, but I’d not use multi tones ...I use 5 tones, I want a single clean signal
Sensitivity obviously high as possible without constant chatting, I tend to run 94/96 99% of the time , tx power at 3
Frequency 17 kHz, I’ve ran 12 and 7 over same targets, 17 is cleaner so stick with it.... running a high sensitivity and high tx power gets you any depth 12 supposedly gets.
Iron 0, is turning it off... I use a tone that covers the iron range as I like to hear it ,
Reactivity 2... if it gets busy with the small iron signals I’ll up this to 2.5 to hit any small hammered inbetween.
Audio set to 4 , but like above if it’s a busy site I set to 5 , just to make sure I don’t miss that tiny non ferrous blip .
Ground balance, I don’t touch .... I’ve tried many times , all the different ways and for me I think it makes the machine less stable , you get a lot more falsing and ghost signals, leave it for the Americans .
Off the top of my head I can’t remember my tones or break points as the machine is in the car, but I cover 0 to something like 36 with a low tone...I want to hear everything in the ground but don’t want to dig anything below 36 and it generally covers the coke issue . 37- 60 is a general anything range , cut quarters, halves fall in this range quite a lot... 61- 85 is the main range for our hammered coins , then 85 - for the large hammered , copper , deeper iron everyone gets fooled by .
Why so many different breaks ? .. that’s just the way I like to hear things.
If I remember , I’ll check the remote for the actual tones and break points and update .

Just save this as a stand alone programme and then change things on the field as you seem fit .

Thanks for the info

Lots of food for thought there, I will try the both this weekend, hopefully there will be enough numbers for the dig to go ahead.

Like I said the standard programmes are good but I need to spread my wings a little and see what this machine can do, I sat through an hours worth of Gary’s YouTube videos last night better............ than porn!!!!

Thanks ::g

It’s sparky and noisy

But you have to run the deus like that to get the harder to find finds .


If you want a quieter dig or not dig programme let us know ::g
But to be honest, if that’s your prefared detecting method, you could of saved a fortune and bought something mid range .

Good luck, stick with that programme and youl do well ::g

Cheers Pinkfloyd, I totally agree with you, I’ve learnt and got to grips with the standard programmes now it’s time to experiment a bit.

Ps Pink Floyd is my favourite band ::g

You’ve great ears my friend ::g

You might be interested in a Live hand signed authenticated poster , all 4 members ::g
I’d sell My kids before selling it though :))
The roger waters live signed dark side of the moon album I might be tempted to sell though :D




You learn more by sticking to one programme, get used to it and then change only one thing and work out what’s the benefit or the downside of that change,
When you’ve decided, change only one more setting etc etc....
you get to know the insides out in no time matey .
