That is 100% correct - it can happen to anyone at any time and even doing 20 rehearsals before a gig won't protect you if the way you have to set up on stage is even slightly different to the way you set up for rehearsal. I can have everything completely silent at home and when I go and set up for rehearsal, it can take me 15 minutes to chase down all the noisy things and shut them up.

What is wrong with expecting something to work the way the maufacturer says it does ?
Nothing at all and Uno Synth does this. As I said, I didn't have any problems until I re-jigged my set-up. It worked fine for 6 months and then it didn't because I changed something, not because of anything IK did or didn't do. My bandmate also had the same problem with his Moog Subsequent 37 but the isolator he bought for that cost a LOT more than $5 (around US$75, I think). And, as I said yesterday, my Analog Keys also puts out masses of mains hum if I don't use balanced cables. It's a very common problem when you use analogue

It's pretty simple in my eyes: Companies can't expect users to fix such problems themselves, so, everyone buying the UNO will run into those noise issues.
They may or they may not, just as with any hardware instrument. It's one of the biggest advantages of working ITB and something I have always mentioned in those kinds of threads. It's why I love using a laptop on stage, because I can run it on battery power, and why I run anything that comes with batteries on batteries when we perform. Fresh sets of batteries at soundcheck is a normal part of our routine.
I just can talk for myself, but, I had my eye on the original UNO a few times. Read about software issues, and also that the volume knob messes up, and also about the noise issues, and decided that that just isn't worth it for me.
I've never had any of those other issues and I take my Uno with me whenever I go away for a weekend or a holiday so it doesn't get treated gently (although I do have a Decksaver for it). Solving the noise problem was cheaper and easier for Uno than it was for Subsequent 37 or Analog Keys, both of which cost 10 times more to purchase. This NOT
an IK problem, it's a hardware problem.

I'm also not ordering an UNO Synth Pro because of this issue, even if I think it looks to be a great synth.
Right, because buying a pair of balanced cables is such a massive headache. Seriously, you'd have to be an idiot to let such a common problem put you off.
I have a Yamaha AG06 mixer/audio interface at home, USB powered, which doesn't exhibit any noise.
Of course it doesn't, it's all digital, there is nothing to interfere with.
It's connected to my Genelec monitors and my MODX goes into it. Cables in and out from various sources, no noise.
Obviously you don't use the effects built into your AG06 because they can be noisy as hell.
Speaking of Yamaha, why the hell are they able to put a proper, solid USB-B connector and a real power connector on their low-cost, compact, battery powered synths (the Reface series) and IK can't?
I don't know but I'm bloody glad of it. I'd much rather the microUSB, thanks. I get a much broader choice of cables, which keeps my set-up looking much neater and tidier.
