MicroBrute constantly producing sound?
« on: July 26, 2014, 04:41:33 pm »
Hi,

I've had my microbrute for a couple months now, and I read that you can "hold" notes by patching the Gate In to Gate Out, which I did, but now my unit is constantly producing a sound. (I left this patched for about 5 seconds before I unplugged the cable from gate in/out)

It doesn't seem to matter which waveforms I dial in (it makes the same persisting sound regardless, even if they're all turned down) and I've even tried moving the ENV sliders around to no audible difference (their position doesn't seem to affect this issue at all).

I've tried restoring the firmware, trying a myriad of switching combinations in the software, repatching the ENV and LFO to different things in the patch bay but nothing will make this unit function like it's supposed to.

When I turn the unit on, there's a repeating audible "clicking" that persists until I hit a key, then it will start producing the sustained note from whichever key I press. The sequencer will make it click until it lazily follows the sequence programmed in there (by that I mean it will advance sometimes, but it doesn't seems to follow any consistent timing).

Did I fry my unit somehow? I'm really worried here. I can take a video if that would help to explain my issue.

I'd like to add as well that the volume knob has no bearing on the actual volume of sound produced, it's the same volume at 0 and 100.

now it seems I can control the tone that's being produced with the LFO controls but none of the waveform controls or volume, then after a while the sound fades away and the microbrute wont produce any sound whatsoever
