let’s talk about the XP Deus factory
preset programs you may be thinking about buying an XP Deus and think is it
too complicated for me well let me tell you the answer’s no the factory preset
programs are there to make your life easier the factory preset programs range
from numbers 1 to 10 and they’ve been set up at the factory to give you
optimum performance on a wide range of terrain and search scenarios so let me
just run through each program and just briefly tell you what they do and I
think you’ll quickly see how simple the dais is to operate by pressing the plus
or minus buttons on your headphones or your controller you can scroll through
the ten factory preset programs program number one is called Basic 1 and that
is a simple bleep dig program you have no iron tone and by that I mean if you
go over some iron you will not get a signal from it it’s very very quiet and
you’ll only get a signal from a good target or a non-ferrous target should I
say basic one is a really simple program it’s a bleep dig program all you do is
turn the machine on switch to number one and detect it’s as simple as that
so what advantages or disadvantages does basic 1 offer well it’s a powerful
program but simplicity is the name of the game you don’t get an iron tone with
the basic 1 you only get a tone when you go over a non-ferrous target such as
a coin let me demonstrate I have a nail here and there’s very
little tone coming from it you might get the odd spit but in all essence it’s
silent now if I go over it with a coin you get a nice solid sound so that’s
basic one you’re using a little bit more iron rejection than the other custom
programs but it’s as simple to use switch on and go program so right next
to that is number 2 Gold Maxx power this is a really popular program people
have been using the gold maxes for many many years and we’ve just swapped this
program straight into the Deus menu so what does it offer well the gold maxx power
program offers 3 tones and it also offers an iron tone and with slightly
less iron rejection so it makes it a little bit more dynamic let me
demonstrate the iron as you can hear now we’re
getting a low tone coming into the iron a coin a nice high tone and the mid tone
for example I’m going to use a ring pull here mid tone high tone iron tone so you
get a really good contrast of the different targets moving on you’ve got
number 3 Deus fast very similar at the gold max power but once again a
little bit more dynamic some things have been shaved off the adjustments for
example the silencer is a lot lower allowing you to work a bit closer to
Iron the Deus fast is probably the most popular factory preset program to
use…. it’s exactly the same it’s got a 3 tone again so there’s no point
demonstrating that so most people toggle between the Deus fast and the gold max
power…. okay moving on number 4 this is a really interesting one it’s called the
pitch mode now the pitch doesn’t have a tone as such it’s got an audio intensity
so you can hear deep or small targets compared to loud shallow targets there
is an iron tone with this as you can hear sounds a little bit more squishy however a good target and as you get
deeper the target will get fainter a good solid sound is what you’re
listening for iron tends to give a broken or stuttered sound
okay let’s
move straight on we’ve got G max now G max isn’t very often used here in the UK
I would say it’s more for when you use the lower frequency coils the black
coils 4 kilohertz – 8 kilohertz it’s a very deep program but it doesn’t have
the dynamics the other programs offer so for example if you’re in the forests or
somewhere really quiet and you’re using the black
low frequency coil it may be an advantage but as a beginner they tend
not to use the G max programs unless they’ve got a specific application
moving quickly on again number 6 deep what’s different in deep well a lot of
people put deep in number 6 and I just rush off expecting to find deep targets
well this isn’t exactly the case because as you know the soil will determine the
depth of the detector in most cases so by using the deep program which is very
very powerful it may be too powerful for your site so you’ll get a lot of
feedback you’ll get some false signals which will lead to confusions
personally I’d only use the deep program if I had a quiet side with not a lot of
iron about also the deep uses less filtering and it uses two tone so quite
simply you get a low tone for iron and a high tone for non-ferrous even your ring
pull will give the same tone very easy to understand 2 tone there’s no
confusion there but just be aware only use the deep program if your site
conditions will allow it number 7 wet beach now this uses a different
ground balance to cancel out the mineral from the wet sand it’s a 3 tone
program as well very much like the others but just remember if you’re on
the wet Beach use wet Beach a lot of people make the mistake of going on the
wet sand with the dry each mode and the ground balance is completely
different and you’ll get false signals right moving on number 8 dry beach
again a 3 tone program really simple to use conventional ground balance for
the dry beach not too much mineral on the dry sand easy to work so if you’re
going out for a day on the dry beach just looking for coins and things like
that number eight is a great choice number 9 my personal favourite which
is the HOT program now HOT uses a different tone it’s called full tones
where you get a different tone based on the conductivity of the target for
example iron that’s at the bottom range of the targets so that will give you a
low tone – foil is slightly higher so that would give you a slightly higher tone
moving up to the bigger silver which is the top that will peak out on a high
tone let me quickly demonstrate iron really low tone foil tiny bit foil you
can hear the tone change small very small medieval coin – ring pull and a
large silver coin you can hear the tones moving up there great source of
information when you’re detecting brilliant fun to use you can really get
into it that’s the HOT program number 9

Ok and number 10 we’re going on to
gold field now gold field is a specialist program if you’re new to the
Deus don’t even go there because it takes a good ear and a little bit of
knowledge about the machine to work it what’s gold field used for…. well it’s
mainly used for finding gold nuggets in difficult soil such as Australia and
things like that where the soil is really really hot it’s difficult to
determine what’s the target and what’s the soil so gold field is very good at
separating that it uses less filtering than the standard programs but however
it can be used to find deep targets such as hoards but we’re making other video
on that another day but gold field is something if you’re new to the Deus
you’ll probably not want to involved with another thing you’ll know
it’s on the factory preset programs the ground balance is set at 90 now XP have
set the ground balance at 90 simply because it’s the best optimal setting
now if you lower the ground balance you’ll start getting good signals from
certain rocks like these rocks these are called hot rocks now you don’t
necessarily want to be getting signals from these thinking it’s a coin so using
the ground balance at 90 eliminates signals from difficult rocks so you’re
only hearing iron and good targets ferrous and non-ferrous so there you
have it the 10 factory preset programs for the XP Deus and I’m sure you’ll
agree there’s nothing difficult about pressing a button and detecting so there
you go thanks for watching if indeed you still are and hopefully see you in the
field soon
