Rings Distortion

Rings is distorting on flashing green mode, and both yellow modes makes it impossible to play with dampening open without it sounding like an electric guitar, brightness has little impact, even when super low.

It happens when I send it into beads, even with the gain manually turned down, and when I plug it into the WMD mixer.

I am not using the audio in, only the gate and v/oct.

Am I doing something wrong or is it supposed to sound like that?
