Mutant Hihats - Closed Hat Output Hissing - Factory Build

Post by CaptainRockout » Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:24 pm

Closed hat output has a noise that can be clearly heard anytime the Drive and Ext are turned up past 40-50% and gets louder when turning further. Open hat is nice and quiet, even with max drive. This isn't a DIY one and I'm no good with soldering. Is there anything that can be done to reduce the noise such as a calibration or will this need to be sent out for repair? I have ruled out power supply, cross talk with other modules, etc. Unfortunately, I bought this used and I am past the return date.

Why not contact the producer first? :despair:

I figured this would reach a wider audience and possibly some others who have run into the same issue. Plus I thought Hexinverter pops in here every now and then, no?

I heard back from HI and they are having me send the module in for repairs. Hopefully it's an easy fix! 8-)

Hey guys!

Sorry, I know this is a zombie thread!!! My apologies for not seeing this.

In truth I have been spending very little time on the Muffwiggler lately :( Mostly as a result of being so dang busy working on stuff!

Please don't hesitate to reach out via the contact form on the hexinverter.net website to start a ticket with me anytime you need help with something regarding the retail products or if you just want to send me some photos of your cats (dogs are cool too, I like dogs too).

Much wiggler goo love as always :goo: :goo: :goo: :goo:
