Hey there all,
Happy to finally being able to be a part of the MI community ! I did start eurorack years ago because of VCV emulations, but only got clones, and now I’m building a Mutable only rack
I ordered 2 Braids, a Beads and Shades, brand new from a store, and I’m waiting for a bunch of second hand modules [By the way, I had a high esteem of the generous eurorack community before seeing how a lot of people can sell their modules 20% to 50% more than they paid new without shame - thankfully I then found out about this warmhearted place ]
But here’s the real topic of my post :
My Shades module makes loud and annoying crackles when I use the switches and when at least one of them is set as a volume mixer. Since there is no video about this module, I can’t find out if this is a normal behaviour and if it’s not intended to be used that way, or if it’s a problem with the module or even with my old apartment’s power.
Also, on a side note, one of my Plaits had a bad contact switch, so I sent it back for replacement, and I noticed that the Beads makes a crackle when I click the central ‘audio quality’ switch. Maybe I just had bad luck on units ? I suspect that the Beads’ crackle is due to the draining of the buffer, but I find that annoying mid-session
Thank you for your time !
