    iFi iDefender3.0 USB Ground Isolator

    something like this may solve the issue i am fairly confident. also if you use it on a laptop with no power adapter connected it shouldn’t make the noise either.

    That’s VERY VERY interesting and would be such an easy solution!!! Did anybody else already test this? I had no chance until now, because the QU16 is not close to me… but I will try to test within 2 or 3 weeks. At first I would test, if the distortions will disappear, connecting the laptop without powersupply. If this occures, I would buy the

    iFi Defender 3.0

    Perhaps this will be an absolut easy and not expensive solution for all this problems since a lot of years!!! Hope dies last!

    If this in fact solves the issue can A&H sponsor a new sq5 I’ve had my eye on for months? 😉

    Good luck @frank I hope it solves the issue for you and others.

    I tested it with a laptop and no power connected to the laptop, it makes no difference at all. What makes a difference is using the USB2 port of the laptop instead of a USB3 port. The Problem is well known to only affect USB3 ports and I’m pretty sure grounding issues play no part at all.

    not sure if this is the same issue..

    I recently started using the Qu-Pac as an audio interface and with that quickly began to notice I got a distorted bit rate type distortion when I switched some VST presets in Cubase 10. It seemed to happen more with VSTs which don’t mute as they change sounds. It was most frequent on IL Harmor and NI Replica and XT. It would turn on seemingly at random and turn back off again on the change of the preset. I could also go back and play the preset normal again once this had happened.

    I believe it may be connected to Windows 10 anti-virus background monitoring. I haven’t had it since I turned it off.

    I have the same thing !!! When I upload native Loops to Studio One … And it started (as I think) when I downloaded the New driver for Asio on Wondows10 from the Official Allen & Heath website! The same strong distortions also started when listening to any music on some Sites – for example, VKontakte! Just Horror! And on the previous firmware for Asio, this wasn’t .. The developers are obliged to check it! And fix the problem! My mixing console is QU-SB.
