Also, what position is the speed at? At High (middle setting) changes are usually noticeable immediately but when at Medium or Low it's not as immediately obvious either audibly nor visually.

It just seems strange as the issue you're suggesting is the most important feature and the feature around which everything else works. Surely you've not just had the same envolope going for a couple of months?

Or this could be a possibility although it would be the ultimate "doh" moment! :)

I have tried literally every combination of all the switches and knobs.

Then drop them an email, for all it's worth they've been the most helpful company I've dealt with (along with WMD) and usually reply in a matter of hours, sometimes even less.

Yep, I contacted ADDAC and they want me to document the problem with video. I plan on doing that any day now.

It's hard to see what everything is set to but there certainly doesn't seem to be the normal reactions to the rise and fall knobs being altered and from what I can see nothing is set to lock mode. Send those those to Andre and I'm sure he'll have a quick solution for you.

Thanks, I have sent them to ADDAC. We'll see what they say.
