Well I’ve got the device up and running and I really enjoy it. I started playing with the MOD-UI interface (which is super intuitive I think) and started creating pedalboard signal chains.
A quick search didn’t reveal a similar topic, but I might have used different search terms.
A question for those using this device in this manner… I notice a strange popping/artifact sound when playing. I would assume that’s the processor, however the temperature is 60*C and I’m only using a minimal portion of the processor.
I have a Pi 4 with 8gb RAM, HiFiBerry DAC + ADS Pro and updated software earlier this week as this is a new build.
Here are some quick sound files I recorded by running the output jack into my Mac/DAW with no post processing.
First file has several effects pedals with moderate settings and my passive fretless bass with soapbar pickups. I believe there was some dirt, reverb, and maybe a little chorus.
Second is pretty clean with only a compressor in the signal chain. But I compressed it pretty heavily to see how it would react with the fretless bass.
The artifact isn’t consistent, and maybe it isn’t even that bad… but if there’s a way to clean that up I’d love a nudge in the appropriate direction. I would like to gig with this device and prior to that I want to play it around the house and do some serious breaking in to make sure I’m comfortable with it’s limitations prior to using it in public. I didn’t see any settings that would let me adjust sampling down from where I was.
Thanks so much!
