Tempest Issue - Buzzing noise

Tempest Issue - Buzzing noise
« on: May 19, 2017, 11:24:26 AM »
Hey guys! Just received my NAMM Demo Tempest and i'm noticing that its producing a high-pitched buzzing noise near the top right of the instrument right by the screen. Is this normal, or should the machine be completely silent? I have only the power supply connected and no TS cables. I would appreciate any help, thanks!

The actual Tempest itself is buzzing???

No thats not right its silent. The actual audio can have aslight buzz because its analog but the actual hardware drum machine is silent no buzzing near any screen

Yes, the top-right side of the tempest right by the screen is generating a high-pitched buzzing noise. I contacted DSI support and they stated that this is normal and should be expected from the OLED refreshing. Can anyone confirm? Thank you.

Hi ReyX,

I responded to your inquiry through our technical support channel.  The buzzing you are hearing is expected and is due to the refresh rate of the OLED display.  Nothing is wrong with your Tempest in this regard.

Hope this helps!

Oh wow, damn you must have good ears I literally had to put my ear on my Tempest to hear that, so yeah its just the screen refresh, I hear it on mine too, normal it seems.

My Tempest also has a buzzing at the screen, but it's only heard if I put my ear right next to it. I can't hear otherwise and was never aware of it till this post!

Seriously...ReyX go get yourself in the Guiness Book of World Records. Your mixes must be very detailed.
