    Yeah, sounds like some loose connections going on for sure. Did the problem just start, and have you done anything differently with your setup lately (i.e. new cables, new machine, placed your studio in a new location, etc.)?

    i get this with mine randomly, i think for me it might be just the unit losing power for a sec cause mines plugged into a usb port thingy with multiple inputs. sounds good but dodgy make thes soundcards

    Sounds like dust inside the knob, if you can get the knob off and blow some highish pressured air down the shaft and twist repeatedly.

    Hahah i wondered if anyone would notice! But that is actually the way to get rid of the dust, albeit sounding like a step by step guide to giving blow jobs lol!
