Little Phatty, apparent problem...

Postby ThomasG on Sat Dec 19, 2009 11:56 pm

My Moog has been working fine for a few months now, but it's started to exhibit a problem. I'm pretty sure it's a fault, but I'd like to double check before I send it away (it's still under warranty).

All four of the main dials fluctuate slightly, back and forth without me touching them, in a haphazard manner. As you'd expect, this effects the sound. There are no midi signals going into it because it does this even when there's no midi cable plugged in. As far as I know, there's no on-board automation which would cause this to happen.

I'm very sad because I've got no real substitute and I have a feeling this'll be weeks away for repairs :(

Any thoughts?

I've read something about the lights on the voyager causing a problem but not on the LPhatty. isn't there some kind of calibration mode? Might check it out if you have not.

In cases like this, there is usually a grounding problem. Try plugging the Phatty into another outlet not on that circuit.
