||Troubleshooting DC sounding hum
| br>Maybe someone can help with some good troubleshooting ideas. Here is my setup for the test at the moment-
blacet vco, blacet dual linear Vca, old blacet made wall wart 250mA PSU, regular blacet power distro board.
OK so everything above works fine, no hum.
I bought a DYI build of the Yusynth Minimoog filter PCB on EBay. It said no power connector cable. No big deal I thought, what I didn't realize is the module had a .com connector which I don't have. So not wanting to spend $9 postage for one connector or buy one with a 5v converter I see no evidence of needing on the yusynth PCB web page it takes me a month to get around to building a connector. I checked it for continuity.
here are my results-
mini VCf not powered = no hum works fine
mini VCf and vco and Vca= substantial hum from VCA with no patch cords. VCf with vco but has hum in the output
same No VCA = hum from VCf and Vca separate and patched
only mini VCf powered= no hum
So I'm guessing the VCf is introducing something no good down the bus, or is is a bad grounding issue? br> br>

or if possible on a distribution point that is separate from the other distro board.
Ask Yves Yusson.
good luck. br> br>
