I am having the noise problems also and honestly I think it's not acceptable for a module for which I paid 650 euro. This is not normal behaviour, the main use case of this module is recording audio so it should be free of this noise. I also did not read on the website that this was normal behaviour, otherwise I would not have spend 650 euro on it
unfortunately I did not read here about the module before buying it but only came here after running into these issues.
So now I have to sell the module with quite a loss while this is clearly a issue in the module itself and also in the Arbhar which is perhaps a little bit less noticeable.
Saying noise is normal by instruo is such a cop out. I hate calling out companies, but claiming an issue like this, on an audio recorder of all things, is normal so there is nothing any of us can do is unfortunate. If it's so normal, than how come some on here claim they don't have it? If it's normal, why are some power supplies better than others? Because it's not normal. There is some clear power issues with the design of this module that has impacted many users in this single thread alone. Go on Reddit and you'll see a bunch of threads and comments of people complaining about the noise. Go on YouTube and you'll see comments here and there about folks dealing with noise.
So I guess my question is, if you had a VCO for example that had unwanted noise in its frequencies and they said "oh it's normal", would you be ok with it? My point is if there are issues with gear and the maker simply claims they are normal, that basically prevents any of us from being able to do anything but either sell it to another person to deal with or deal with it ourselves. Way too expensive of a module to have these issues. If you're going to charge a premium, this type of thing can't exist.
For the other person above me saying it could be setups etc., re-read my troubleshooting steps and re-read this thread on the amount of complaints about noise. I literally have a single case with 0 modules, I stuck a lubadh in there by itself, even plugged power in a hum reducer to make sure I had clean power, and had noise while it wasn't even patched. I guess the pages and pages of people with noise issues is just on them.
Don't mean to sound extra grumpy, but the most frustrating thing is when people say oh I don't have this issue so it must be on you, when we have 3 years of people complaining about noise more than any other thread besides possibly Mimeophone like you mentioned.
