Asked this on the AH Facebook group but didn’t get much of a response so hoping I will have better luck here.
I have some noise in my setup and I think it’s coming from the Heat. Currently I have a bunch of devices connected to a mixer, which is connected to my Octatrack via AB input. The OT cue outs go to the Heat, and the Heat to my Focusrite 18i20 interface. When I switch everything but the Heat off, the input meter on the Heat still shows a little black, as if a very faint signal is still coming through, even though everything is switched off. If I remove the cables from the Heat input, it goes away, and returns when I plug them back in. Is that normal? If not, where could the noise be coming from? Cheap cables maybe? The noise is coming through both the L and R input, so don’t think the cables are broken.
Any ideas what it could be? I have a rare day off on Friday and plan to do some recording, and would rather not spend half the day trying to fix a noise issue if I can avoid it.
