    Im finding that turning my 4 knobs on my active aria bass produces a scratchy sound and also my bass stops producing any sound at all. any ideas on why and what i can do to stop it?

    First check that the battery is fresh.

    Second, the problem most likely is just a dirty pot. Dust get in there and wreaks all kinds of havoc. Try unscrewing the pots and blowing out any dust. Unless there's a wiring problem (which is possible) that should take care of it.
