If you increase the gain of the clean channel, it will no longer sound clean. The distortion channels are louder because they are overdriven.

do you have channel and master volume? i dont know much about AVTs, i dont really like how they sound. The solution is not to make the clean channel LOUDER, its to make the driver channel QUIETER, in a way that your NOT adjusting gain, eg a power attenuator after the preamp.

But if you have a channel/master layout meaning your channels woudl loosk liek this

gain bass mid treb volume
gain bass mid treb volume (fx?)
then a master at the end

adjust the two channel volumes (raise clean, lower dirty) so that you can switch channels without any volume boost.

although i always run my dirty or lead(if the rythm is really gainy too) channel with a BIT of boost, for them screamin solos

In many amplifiers section lead plays stronger than clean section,
this because the distorsion is given by the glut of a preamplifier stage.
for comparison You can test another AVT 50, AVT100 ecc. ecc.
however also on the clean amplifier has to give 50W output.

If guitar pickup have a low sensibility, it would be better then
to use a small one-transistor preamplifier with a 9V battery.
