I regularly use 3 or 4 on groups (in Cubase, and with analog turned on) and, obviously with no input, the channel meters read -~ ie silence. Ergo, no noise. Even when I put an instance of REDD in front, with the drive turned up.
And, er, asking.
Yes, I can hear it.
It seems to be a standard Waves thing.
When you turn the analogue button on (or add 50/60 Hz on the CLA-2A for example) all that happens is it adds 'hiss' or 'noise'. The meters always hover above inf, never clear themselves. Turn analogue off and the meter goes clear. On Cubase by the way.
I understand the analog thing with the CLA stuff (which I always have turned off). But when using the analog feature with the CLA stuff you get a lot of meter movement. When I use the analog dial on any of the REDD series, I get a lot of meter movement. Therefore, noise is present, as expected.
But, when I turn on the analog switch on the API2500, there is no meter movement at all. None. Therefore, no noise. And I whacked the output faders to max. The goes for the eqs in the API collection.
Maybe I have a brand new one, in pristine condition.
(Please note: I ain't denying what's been said here, just saying I ain't having that issue.)
