    The Duet 2's case is grounded, but the knob is not. Because of the extreme cold, I keep shocking the Duet 2 with static electricity pretty much any time I touch it now. Are there any solutions for this problem? Can I put some kind of tape over the knob?

    Touch something grounded before touching the apogee,or wear rubber gloves.

    I would get a small room humidifier to raise the humidity in the room I'm in the Midwest and went through the same thing until I got a humidifier.

    I think a humidifier might work. It would be cool to have a cover for the knob, but I don't think they make anything like that.
