@ Panason the difference here is, he has an ACTUAL, first-hand-experience issue that, by the sound of it, is entirely outside of the norm, and possibly not even the Microfreak's fault (it may only be the one unit that is responding to it the most) you, on the other hand, were blindly (=without ownin...

do not use the Mackie Mixer between the Euro and the Audio interface (if possible). and make sure you have a interface with low Noise-floor. this Antelope thingy is probably crap Antelope is actually really high quality "crap"... that´s not the issue. Neither is the Mackie (though that is somewhat ...

re: the reliability of touch sensitive "buttons": it´s a capacitive touch sensor most likely - that either works or it doesn´t - and in the latter case, it´s about your skins' conductivity most of the times, and bad grounding in the remaining cases. they definitely do not wear out or anything.

Sorry for the necro thread revive. I'm looking for a second 48dB filter. I already have the a108, but i want/need something else to get rid of clock noise on the BBD. 24dB just doesn't cut it compared with the a108 but i dont want to "waste" that lovely sounding filter on such a mundane task. Are t...

low output volume Is this right? is it USB powered?? the output volume varies (sometimes quite strongly) from patch to patch, especially when "paraphonic" mode is enabled - which is to be expected, and also the different oscillator models have different output levels just due to their inherent natu...

thanks for the feedback @drxcm !

I´ll stay on the v1 firmware for a bit longer, then - I can live with the "parameter display glitch", as it doesn´t happen very much for me - and the analog clock still works with the factory firmware!

I recently got the Waves Scheps Omni Channel and it's basically the only thing I use now, FX aside. How do I use it? Either direct on a channel or parallel processing and more often than not I just find an appropriate preset, and then maybe tweak that a bit. It's very cleverly designed for someone ...

Maybe it's the colours in that video which just made me feel good, I think it may have been processed a bit.

sounds like a reversed 16pin power cable. I unplugged everything. With just two modules plugged into the bus board all three led’s remain on, but if you patch them together or plug in a third module, the led’s are back to only the -12v lighting up. at this point, you´d be best off telling us exactl...
