Focusrite octopre LE problem with new units

I bought me the octopre le, via a well known webshop

the first unit, i received, wasn't working right

the ovr led on channel 1 kept burning

So the shop sent me another one,

i just turned it on,

and it has the same problem

I'm starting to think its a production fault of focusrite,

2 new units with the exact same problem,

So i was wondering if anyone else had this problem?

Oh cr*p! I'm just about to order one of these, but maybe I will reconsider...

Hi Odc

The Over LEDs on the front panel of the OctoPre LE have a second function, as delineated by the label "MTR" below them. When they are on constantly, they indicate that the channel in question is being fed into the meter on the front panel of the unit. The channels can be cycled through by pressing the "Source" button on the front of the unit.

The behaviour that you describe, rather than being a production fault, is completely normal. More information about this can be found on page 4 of the OctoPre LE User Guide.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch via the Focusrite Answerbase (The Official Source for Focusrite Product Support and Information .: Focusrite Answerbase).

Best regards
