Default HUI Fighting Faders

Hi all
I have a recurring problem with the HUI in that, regardless of what auto mode I'm in, the faders will sometimes resist being moved ( I can feel them trying to return to the previous level even in write mode). As a result, at best I end up with a zillion little up-down auto breakpoints. At worst, I have to redo the pass for that section. Any clues? Thanks and Happy New Year!

I don't want to get you depressed or anything, but this topic has been thoroughly discussed on other posts.

Click here to see the bad news:

AND:

I was able to use the sensitivity screws located on the underside of the console to help with my problem. There are two rows of screws. The row you need to work with is the row with the staggered screw. (The staggered screw is the 8th fader). Depending on which faders are fighting you can turn the screws counterclockwise to reduce the resistance on that channel. Be careful, because if you do it too much that fader will move when your finger even gets close to it without touching it.

Good Luck!

Joe,

I posted this to the topic you probably read, but just in case you missed it: Try running a heavy copper wire (Monster Cable works well) from a cover screw at the bottom of the HUI (one of the perimeter screws that go into the chassis) to a good ground source, like a copper water pipe or any other direct ground connection. This solved the problem for me.

Good Luck,

Garry
