Re: EDP and a BIG burst of static/hiss
Never seen what you mention, but I have, very rarely, had one of my EDPs
have a very high gain during overdub. Straight record of a loop would be
fine, multiply, insert, etc. But Overdub would be at very high gain
levels... producing a high-gain hiss. Rebooting has always fixed it.
This only happens once a month or so. I've learned to check the Overdub
situation right away when I power up to play.
Anyone else seen *that*?
Mark - Probably because you're such a prolific list member, with great
and a relatively positive attitude - I find myself wanting you to like the
EDP :) I know you do, but I hate hearing that you may have a bum unit,
which is frustrating I'm sure! Hope you get it all worked out.
