I'm pretty sure I've got my levels set right, but it still does it.  You 
can hear the noise pretty clearly in the left channel when the EDP kicks 
on "Total Immersion" at http://artists.iuma.com/IUMA/Bands/armatronix/ and 
also at the very end when I'm hitting replace.

It does basically disappear into the background after the loop gets built 
up enough, however.  I just don't trust my other EDP enough to send it in 
(it's had problems of its own), but I have spoken to Shane about it and 
he's willing to take a look.

I don't find that the levels of the EDP change so much as the knobs just 
tend to migrate during transit.  Somewhere on my list of projects is to 
to find replacement trim pots for the input level that I can set and 
forget.  It sucks when there's no time for a sound check and you just have 
to pray that everything's right.

Ah yes... How are those OLP instruments selling?  I don't get to hear much 
marketing-talk back in the engineering office.
