I am setting up my new StageScape and have run into a problem with the fidelity of my digital organ (Hammond XK-3).
The organ sound is distorted no matter what the trim or levels are set to, including using Auto-Trim and Trim Tracking. Distortion sounds like digital distortion or clipping even though the input and output levels are around 0 dB or below. (BTW - I am an electrical engineer with extensive analog/digital experience)
If I take the exact same signal chain and run into my Mackie 1604 analog mixer, the sound is clean. Listening to the organ through headphones also sounds clean when the StageScape sound is distorted.
I've tried numerous signal path combinations and it makes no signficant difference.
If I run my digital piano (Roland RD-700) or another line-level source (e.g. iPod) through the same input chain, everything sounds fine.
The Deep Tweak setting has EQ/compressor, etc. all disabled.
All AC mains plugged into the same power conditioner.
Hammond stereo outputs into either balanced XLR inputs 11-12 or balanced TRS 13-14 (doesn't change the problem)
Alternate setup is to run Hammond through a passive stereo DI (with or without -20dB pad; with or without ground lift). Doesn't change the problem.
Is anyone else using StageScape with a Hammond or other clonewheel organ? Has anyone else run into this?
Thanks for help/advice.
