Intellijel 7U I/O vs Elektron Digitakt - noise?

Not sure if this is a Digitakt issue or an Intellijel issue, but I get quite a lot of hiss out of my Intellijel 1U I/O module in the 7U case before I even plug any audio into the module.

I’ve tried with the output on my Make Noise Shared System - both the built in output and a Rosie module - and it’s totally clean. I’ve not had any other noise issues with the DT inputs.

I’m not sure if it’s power issues in some way - I’m clueless about such things. But then the MN case is plugged into the same wall output as the Intellijel case.

Suggestions welcome!

Are you using balanced cables? Sometimes hisses like that can be a grounding issue.

I was using a TRS cable. Is it better to use non-TRS?

Tried it with my highest quality non-TRS guitar cable… silent. :+1:


TRS cables are generally recommended with our cases, but noise/power/grounding issues are a complex beast.

It seems the digitakt inputs are unbalanced, so that’s probably why.
