I finally got the unit home to my humble studio, fired it up and had it 2 errors. I forgot to get the one, something to do with ROM i think, and it displayed the other time i first turned it on. but the one said “ERROR – SUGGEST POWER DOWN, host timeout”. So it fireup, and i load up the banks, and choose delays, and choose a simple stereo delay(number 2 perhaps). I set it up with 2 aux feeds from my desk, with a simple demo from my last band. AUX 1 into #1, Aux 2 into #2. The output is routed back to 2 empty channels. I see signal is being passed to the unit, as the front input meters light up in time with the song. But no audio is being output. I check the return cables via cable tester, both pass. So now im RTFM(not my first time mind you, but first time with the unit in front of me), and i see there is both a global output and a preset output. So the global is set to 0db(max), as is the preset output. I turn up the preset slowly, and nothing. I tried this for a few presets, in different banks. Unfortunately im out of time for the night, i will continue this on Friday. Fortunately, my job gives me ample time to RTFM.
So is this how a bricked unit looks/acts? I can see the banks/presets, there are parameters that can be adjusted, the input meters show incoming audio, but nothing from the outputs….unless i change a preset and then it gets LOUD for a split second. I will also be trying to get a sysex file, and see if it will load via MIDI. IF it does, i will probably keep it, and start begging for and buying presets.
