Topic: [Solved] UFX+ and Ferrofish Pulse 16 MX CV Outputs are very noisy
This might be more of a Ferrofish question than an RME. But it seems like many have this same config so I'll ask.
I have a UFX+ and a Ferrofish Pulse 16MX factory modified to include CV out. I also have an OPTX eurorack adat interface connected to my UFX. The Pulse is connected to the UFX+ via MADI.
I have no problems using any of the inputs on all 3 interfaces. I've had the Pulse for about 10 months with zero problems.
But I just started trying to use the Pulse's outputs for the first time as an effects send and am not getting a clean signal. It's noisy, strong hum, and only a very faint trace of the signal I'm routing to it. Unusable.
When I monitor the signal at the Pulse Headphone out, it's clean and sounds great. The signal levels on the Remote Fish app seem OK and aren't noisy or distorted. It's just at the line out for any of its channels.
I'm not that experienced with the Ferrofish and hope that its just a setup issue. It could be that its sending some DC out as part of the CV modification? -- I don't see anything to turn that on or off and figured it was just automatic based on the source signal and I'm just sending plain audio from a TotalMix effects send.
I ended up never even using the Pulse's outputs for CV as the OPTX came along and is more convenient for that.
The firmware of the Pulse is the latest, 5.04. I think everything else is up to date too.
