Topic: Strange FF800 monitoring issue
Hello all! Ran into a VERY Strange monitoring issue with my FF800 today and hoping someone can advise. I was testing out some new impulse responses with my amp and for some reason, I could not control the monitoring level of the input signal. It's as if it was just passing through. The issue occurred EVEN WITH THE INTERFACE OFF. As if it was just passing it straight through to outputs 1 & 2.
Line out from Attenuator > Front input 8 of FF800 (issue occurred on all inputs) >Mackie Big Knob Passive > HS80s
So as I said I could hear the line out signal coming through my monitors all the time. TotalMix showed the signal but even when muted it passed through. Also even with the Big Knob on 0 or muted it still passed signal through. I cannot for the life of me figure it out. The only way to stop it was to either turn off monitors, unplug source, or unplug the cables going into or out of the Big Knob. Also, adjusting the level on the interface affected the level showing in the DAW / total FX, but DID NOT ADJUST THE LEVEL I WAS HEARING. Only adjusting the output on my amp setup made a difference.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. I find it exceptionally weird that it did it with the unit off as I thought everything hit the A/D converters.
