So this is my first post here, and I’m a new Octatrack owner. It arrived yesterday, and while waiting for it to arrive, I’ve read the manual a couple of times, and watched many YouTube bits, and I feel like I have a good understanding of the machine.
Busy times right now, and no time to commune with my new toy in depth, so I just thought I’d play with it in Demo Mode and see what’s what…
So I plugged a couple of (unbalanced) cables into my audio interface, and pressed play… Hideous distortion. So turn down the input gain on the interface… still distorted! So I turned down the interface gain to almost nothing, with the input indicator LEDs hardly showing. Still distorted.
So its the OT outputs distorting horribly with the Demo project. The distortion only disappears with the OT master volume turned down to below half. That doesn’t seem right to me… Is this normal, or (usual noob question) is it a fault?
I’ve searched the forum and found nothing similar. So… am I being an idiot here? I hope so. That’s my initial assumption…
Thanks for any help you can give me, and apologies if its just another noob stupid question.
