dont pre programme it.  , run it fully open with no disc and play with the sensitivity til you get it as high as possible for the fields you are detecting. i prefer multi tones, normal sound in conductive. play with threshold sounds and i use trash density low, ground normal and recovery fast on, deep off. . It can be noisy in quite mineralised or iron infested ground, but it will pick out the small grunts of wee thin non ferrous no bother.
