Hello! I have a lot of digital noise with ModDuoX in my setup.
- I have changed my power sockets (everything connected to the same socket).
- Tested a single ModDuoX without any connection (still noisy). Doesn’t matter if I have USB connected or not.
- Purchased new AC-adapters (balanced, impulse) for ModDuoX and additional gear.
- Tried to use active DI-BOX.
- And now waiting for a whole new set of TRS cables, because before ModDuoX a was running everything on TS and there weren’t any problems with a digital pulsating hiss.
I did a recording of any possible way of ModDuoX connection to my setup. I could share it if helps to identify the problem.
How to solve this? I’ve found some topics on the forum, but nothing helps.
For me I experience the noise when I use tiny gain, and spectrum plugins.
The common of those plugins is they display the live statement of value as visual.
Except the tiny gain display -inf, the create a little pulsating noise.
Except the spectrum goes to nothing(same as -inf), it creates same noise.
So my soultion is to put the tape on the grounding metal on the original MODDuoX adaptor which make the device not grounding.
For, me I connect other device which enable grounding system, I make the MODuoX not grounding.
Then I found out that the hissing problem solved, but still the pulsating noise remains.
For me it is the same with tiny gain, stereo gain or direct routing. Where i can fing this grounding surface on the AC adapter to try your method? Is it a tip going into MDX?
I have EU standard plug.
So I did like this.
Because I connect extra devices which eable grounding, so I think I don’t need to ground MDX.
I am using a normal MDX adaptor which comes inside the box.
Wow very interesting solution. I will try this right now.
I just did same, and it worked. Can confirm that pulsating thing in low frequency range is there, but digital hiss is disappeared. Now i think it will be much easier to manage signal-to-noise levels.
Thank you very much! I will test everything now and will post updates here.
Because I also use RC-505, it is really hard to control noise only with threshold on RC-505.
Maybe MDX developer will help us to remove pulsating noise through updates.
Please let us know the results of your attempts
I’ve got the whole new set of TRS cables, can confirm that the hiss is less now. But I still have this pulsating thing in the low-frequency range.
Could you please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and add a sample of the type of sound that you get?
I have already sent this to Jesse, he should forward it to tech engineers. BUT. After I switched everything to TRS and did some gain-staging again, I’m having a pretty usable signal. I will test it more but seems okay now. And my power plug still isolated from ground. As Oxygenic showed here.
Ah ok. That’s perfect.
Keep us updated if your attempts solved the issue.
