Crackling on the headphone out of my DT


I’ve had an issue with my DT now for a while. The headphone output suffers from crackling when i turn the main volume knob. No crackling on the main outputs.

The crackling is there from about 9 o’clock to 2 o’clock. Sadly enough that’s where I prefer to have my headphones at most of the time.

Weird thing about the sound is that it kind of ‘fizzles’ along with samples. It changes in tune when i turn the knob, and if I play for example a kick drum it peaks and changes together with the playback.

Tried turning and working the pot softly for longer periods of time, but no change. It’s been like this since I bought it. Any idea what I can do short of sending it back to Elektron? Would prefer not to have to do that.

Thanks for any information.

I’d open a support ticket with Elektron, see what they say.

Check your reverb: do you have such crackling when you filter the bass and trebles?
I have encountered this on A4 and it took me a while before finding the culprit…
