Avid dock fader noise
 
Hi everyone,

I bought a new avid dock a few weeks ago. While using it I though the fader was making more noise than it should, it's about as loud as the artist mix faders. So I got a replacement unit, but the fader makes the same amount of noise as the previous unit.

I've made 2 quick smartphone videos of the sound.

Does anyone recognise the sound? Or should it be smoother and lower in volume? I'm not sure if I put my expectations too high..
The touch response and movement work fine.

Thanks,

Sander

Yep. Familiar. The S3 is a little quieter, D-Command and S6 are a lot quieter. You get what you pay for. I made a soft key for Eucon/Global/Faders Off for when you're doing critical listening. But they only bug me during slow fade-outs.

Thanks for reply!
Several sources told me this is indeed normal behaviour. Too bad the fader is not really better than the avid mix ones.
Im going to add the faders off soft-key, thanks for the tip!
