Focusrite Saffire (original) white noise at high gain
I was given a Focusrite Saffire recently (usage unknown) so naturally I've been testing it out.
When I take the input gain and the monitor volume up to full, the output emits a pretty loud white noise, getting louder as you get nearer full volume. The output's silent when the gains are down to nothing.
Is this normal?
The left is louder than the right strangely and using the onboard DSP I can apply reverb the noise. Taking power from the mains doesn't affect it.
I'm on a late 2011 Macbook Pro using a Neet firewire cable and the noise occurs without anything plugged into the inputs and sounds on all outputs.
Thanks for any help you can offer, I can't find anything like this on the internet.
