Minimoog Voyager Clicks and Pops

Post by antwann » Sat Oct 05, 2019 1:39 pm

Hi,

When holding a note for more than 1 second on certain patches, my Minimoog Voyager makes random popping/clicking noises that can be heard in the background, for example, when playing 003 Brassy Lead (Bank 4/5 - Zon Vern Pyles Contribution). Is this normal?

Thanks

No, its not supposed to click and pop. Do you listen direct from the output or through a computer?

Hi Analog Prophet,

Yes, I can hear it using both headphones and the main outputs. It normally happens holding notes with patches that have a short release time on the volume envelope (less than 70). I've found out that if this time is increased the faint pops/clicks are reduced.

Regards

That’s not normal behavior. If you don't latest firmware try to update it. If that doesn’t make the trick contact Moog support, I’m sure they can tell you what it is and how to get it fixed.

Does it do the same thing through headphones?
