earlier the day i was turning my analog four mk2 on to see which firmware it was running, but missed the boot screen where it is said, so i turned it off again while it still showed our favorite company’s brand logo.
i flipped the switch on again, but heart attack, nothing to see or to hear except a little popping sound when flipping the switch… tried it again and again - no signs of life.
this almost made me cry - did i break this gift from heaven just by such a little mistake?!
took out the power cord, flipped the switch a few times more, connected everything - nothing.
left it for a few minutes powered off and unwired. - nothing.
maybe the power supply blew?! - tried the one of my rytm - nothing. (power supply of A4 let the rytm power off immediatly)
it was to that point i almost s**t my heart on the carpet, suicidal thoughts surrounded me. this just could not be true.
i unwired the device completely (almost packing it to send it to my reseller for warranty), switched the power to “on” and left it sitting on the desk for like 5 minutes.
i said to myself to try it one more time before i wanted to contact the reseller.
wired everything again, crossed my fingers, bit my lips, closed my eyes and flipped the switch - a pop sound was audible… opened my eyes - there it was in all its shiny beauty, as nothing ever happened…
i jumped around full of joy - my baby was back.
since this happened, i feel like i can not “trust” the machine anymore… i’m really scared this was the beginning of worse to happen, i imagined it to happen right before a gig…
how can this happen just by such a simple mistake (which i assume is done pretty often without having this result?) was it something like a RAM issue?
did anyone of you experienced something similiar? how do you cope with your machines acting strange?
am i just to squeamish and should act more like an adult?
looking forward for answers, experiences and opinions!
