Organelle ground noise: how much is normal?

I recently acquired a used Organelle from the Ebay. I love the Organelle, exactly what I wanted. My question to all the Organelle users is: do you feel the Organelle has more ground noise than average (compared to your other devices / instruments)? I’m just trying to get an idea of what a normal amount of ground noise / white noise is for the device (and to rule out that something is not up with my unit).

When compared to my Septavox the Organelle has a lot more ground noise / white noise and this noise also sounds different.


The audio input jack sometimes produces noise in sampler or effects patches when nothing is plugged into it, but other than that if I’m using a patch where there’s no audio in - there’s no noise.
