Hey guys,

I finally got all my pedals hooked up to my Midi-14, all powered and working. However when I use my EHX Deluxe Electric Mistress Flanger, depends on the settings, I can hear a slight noise emitting from the amp. The noise gets more frequent and noticeable as I play around with the range/color/rate settings. It occurs when I'm not playing but with the pedal switched on. When I am playing with the pedal on, the guitar sounds mask the noise. Because of the true bypass loopers on the Midi-14, when the DEM is not in use the noise is completely gone. Is this pedal a notoriously noisy pedal by design? I get a similar noise although much less noticeable from my Red Witch pentavocal tremelo. The noise goes in and out along with the the velocity settings. Again, is this normal?

Does the noise go away when you turn your guitar volume down?
