Eventide question?

I have two questions for Eventide H3000 users. I noticed the higher the level meters get, the dimmer the front panel display gets. I am attributing this to a power loss due to the brightness of the level meters, but isn't that a design flaw? I also noticed the Eventide is a little noisy ? That may be a level matching problem......?

Looks like you have one of the earlier units. They were noisier and got better with the later revisions. I don't remember the dimming thing though, that maybe this particular unit itself.

You got it!

Nope! That's the great ol' H3000!
You gotta love it for what it is...

It has all sorts of little qwerks. There are tons of cool "flaws" that you can use and abuse to get cool effects out of that.

Have fun!

Mine did that and I sent it in for service. I forget what the issue was, but the problem also affected the sound quality and it sounded much better when I got it back.

My local tech was able to fix the problem even though he didn't have the schematics. Eventide gets a flat fee for all repairs (about $300 last I checked).
