Hello everyone - I am a new user or JABB and new to the forum. Great stuff on this site!
When I move the mod wheel, I am getting a static/crackle sound through the speakers. I have no problem with the sound in JABB when not using the wheel. The sound is not the monitors getting overloaded, as it occurs even when I go from loud to soft. I also get it through my headphones - not even appraoching clipping level on the audio. This problem occurs on all samples that use the mod wheel for volume/timbre control (winds and brasses).
I tend to notice the sound more when it is a quick mod wheel move.
Could be bad news, your mod wheel has got dirty contacts and is sending out crap along with the midi signals.
Try this as a check: You havent said what progs you are using other than JABB but if you're running it in a sequencer, then play a few notes and WRITE some mod wheel instructions in the file, usually this is quite easy.Then play back, the mod wheel instructions are incorporated without the wheel moving.
If the static stops its your wheel, if it doesn't best ask Gary.
Thanks, that must have been it. I had no issue when drawing in the automation. In fact, it is almost gone now even with the wheel. The contacts probably got a bit of a cleaning just by me working the wheel while diagnosing the problem. I'm sure I'll have to clean them out for real, but at least I have the source.
