I’ll tell you what it means,
The other night, as I was processing a stem through my HEAT, i started to get that garrbled, pitchig up and down digital noise one gets when thier converters are malfunctioning,
No, problem, I play with my buffer size Same thing.
Being on a deadline and not having time for this B’S I decide to route the stem to a pair of outputs and process it through the heat manually, that is to say analog in analog out.
MUCH TO MY SURPRISE The defect continued to reproduce it’s self via the ANALOG outputs, do you know what it means when you get converted artifacts and malfuctions through your analog outputs?
IT MEANS THE SIGNAL PATH IS PASSING THROUGH AD/DA CONVERTERS
and therefore (Through I had always had a suspicion the HEAT doesn’t really SOUND analog)
The Elektron heat IS NOT ANALOG, you are pssing though converters no matter how you proccess it
