About two months ago I purchased a Digimax FS from ebay, advertised as brand new in
box. Sure enough, when it came all looked well and brand new so I put it under my bed
since I've been busy with University work.
Today I decided to give it a go, so
I powered it up, linked the direct out of the channel into one of my RME Multiface TRS
inputs, plugged in the mic... nothing. Turned the gain all the way up, and all that is
audiable is a feint "pop.. pop.. pop.." sound.
I thought that this may be to do
with clocking - but I can't imagine such a unit needs wordclock or ADAT sync to use the
analogue outputs of the unit? I don't have any BNC or ADAT cables at the moment, so
haven't been able to check whether this helps.
I tried my trusty Behringer
cable tester in test tone mode, and the same noise was there. I decided to try try channel
two just incase it was a dead channel. BEEEEEP. Yep, it works. Moved along to number
three... "pop.. pop.. pop".. okay... number four.. again, test tone comes through.
Tried all channels - the "even" numbered channels work fine - the "odd" numbered
channels have the "pop pop pop" sound!!
Anyone have ANY idea on whats going
