Wondering if I could get an expert's help. My Proteus 2 is randomly crackling. It's nothing that I can help and it's interfering with my ability to record.
here's an example:

This example has been amplified but you can hear the random little clicks / pops. It seems there's also an electric hum so it sounds like a possible caps issue, but was wondering if anyone knew how to repair the proteus to do this.
There doesn't seem to be a great resource on the internet for stuff like this. Kurzweil K1000's had k1000.net ..I'm wondering if there's anything similar for the old style E-mu hardware?
Thanks in advance!
Now, that said... if you're using S/PDIF, or any other form of digital I/O for your recording, don't forget that one device must be "Master" and the other set to "Slave". In other words, one is a leader, the other follows. In today's PC society, it's Internal and External. Not only that, but the sample rate has to be the same between the synth, the computer and the software, else you'll get humming, clicks & pops.
If you are instead using an analog cable, be absolutely certain that your cable matches the audio interface. If you've got an "un-balanced" Input for the computer, use a shielded, unbalanced cable, like a guitar chord - NOT a speaker cable, else you'll get humming, clicks & pops.
Another thing to look out for is your electricity. You want your computer plugged into the same outlet as your audio interface, and the same as your keyboard. That way, you'll minimize ground fault issues, else you'll get humming, clicks & pops...
