    it could be 'cause your either not playing properly or your not mutingyour upper strings.
    i dont think theres anything wrong with your processor, and yes guitarists do mute their upper strings, i.e. with their palm.

    Mute-ing is a technique. It's not compulsary(sp?).

    Generally when you play stuff like metallica you mute all 6 strings (although you play only on GDAE).

    When your playing Punk or EMO...stuff like greengay you don't mute the strings you just strum like you've never strummed before

    I do mute the three strings (E A D) with the palm.
    Place the palm on the bridge as well as hold it in a manner by which u just touch the surface below ur thumb on those upper 3 strings. Dont over mute the strings or else u wont get the proper Clear Punchy & Distorted tone from it. I always keep the Gain knob on the amplifier to the max as well as i keep the trebble Knob on my guitar to the Max.
    Try it and let me know if it works for u ;-)

    Yeah i do get that PUNCHY Distorted Sound by doing it.....
