I feed it with the DI channel in Fireface, as with the others. Could it be a impedance problem? Thanks.
Hi Ivan, the Headway band needs to be done up very tightly to make the contact solid. If you can do that, the crackling noise will stop. It helps to let the Band relax for a couple of days on the bass, then re-tighten to fit.
Let us know how you make out - I've installed a few of those at the store and they end up sounding very good. They look a little weird, but the sound's there.
