I doubt that this will have a software solution! Of course, you can "gate" the tracks that you aren't using but this doesn't work in general. Someone on this thread mentioned that they had level-matched all their components and still had an issue. That's unsettling. Someone should definitely level-match the instrument and then give us a S/N measure. Give me a Repeater, I'll do it! /t -- I am the wombat.
