| br>I've had this incredibly annoying problem with my R16 for almost a year. I've included videos and a photo to help show the problem. I've also posted this in gearslutz so sorry if you see this twice, I'm just losing my mind with this and need to figure it out..
I'm getting a popping digital sound if digital return buttons are pressed in. This never occurs right when I turn on the board, but begins anywhere between a few minutes to an hour after the board is turned on. It also occurs without the R16 being connected to my computer. The digital click occurs repeatedly and increases in frequency the longer the mixer is on. The volume of the click depends on the channel fader volume of the channels with the digital returns pressed. Sometimes it does not occur at all. Usually i know it is going to begin occurring by a single digital clicking sound.
This is what it looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUYAA5NiGq4
Every time a digital click occurs, I get a spike in material being recorded. This is shown in the following picture: http://imgur.com/gallery/oVQ1jk1/new
This video shows that the spikes/clicks occur in all channels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5oERZ3l_M4
Lastly, it increases in frequency when I detach my firewire cable, as can be seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDHJozRtzXY
This is absolutely driving me crazy. I've tried reinstalling the driver and firmware but the problem hasn't been resolved. Please help !
Should also ad I sent this to A&H and they couldnt find a problem... br> br>
