OTO BIM - need help ... is this normal ?

I have an OTO BIM for about a month and a BAM (really love the BAM).
I have been using the BIM as a chorus for some days.
I noticed that i had some digital artifact and i though that was my audio interface. After trying to find the cause of the digital noise i found out that it was the BIM when using audio source with high frequency content.

Here is some examples using the Bim in THRU mode level meter at 5 100% wet with everything else at min.

First example using the Analog 4 from Elektron


Second example using the OB6


Make the thing not usable for anything else than delay . Chorus, flanger, vibrato there is that aweful digital noise. Is it normal ? I know its 12 bits ya da ya da but this is not a desirable effet at all.

Thanks for any info,

I guess you've tried lowering the volume of OB6?
I'm able to clip my BAM with P6 if everything is turned up.

Yes latest version and volume of OB 6 is set about at half (show about 5 on the level meter on the BIM) so its not clipping.
Seems to happen with high frequency sound (saw pad with hp filter for ex).
