Thanks for the tip...still diving in. But it is a real drag the 8 controller knobs lacks a real linear feel e.g. like a D-Command/Command 8/Control 24. I don't remember the Artist series controller knobs feeling that way? They were just tiny for my sausage fingers

I'm just trying the Dock Control leaving the Artist Series and Icon behind and my biggest problem is the same with the loud mechanically sound from the fader when reading the automation. Have you fixed yours ? I dont know if this could worth it.

I don't have any issues with the dock fader being noisy.. It's exactly the same as the S3 fader, which is much better than the Artist Mix fader.

Can you shoot a video?

Sure. I just shoot with my cellphone on this. Is this the normal noise you get as well ? https://youtu.be/Htsu5be4bjY

It's hard to say from a video but that seems to be much louder than my faders (on an S3). When my faders are moving smoothly it's really very quiet, with a bit of a click sound when the direction of travel changes. I think you might have a problem with that fader.

When the movements should be smoothly is when it sounds louder. Yes, I think this could be a problem.

ah, I think you might have a bum motor.. It shouldn't grind like that. It should be nice and smooth. Is the unit new? can you have it replaced?
