The headphone amp is noisy but there is also that noise floor as you say.
I have made significant progress in the last few hours by just being
very, very careful with the input levels, trying to get every ounce of gain
without clipping. Most digital gear has a lot more headroom than this
thing. Pitch and tempo shifting also generates more noise, but works a lot
better when the input level is optimum. I have to admit I still haven't
sat down and gone thru the manual page by page, the little beast is so
darned intuitive and just begs to be messed with...but maybe I really
