    Ain't heard of this before! If the problem persists, send a mail to the main developer: rohan@synthstrom.com

    it is rather dry here. i wonder if static electricity has anything to do with it. my cats are constantly shocking me. i have a humidifier going 24/7 too. would a static charge reset the machine?

    I don't know, maybe @Sam does?

    Sounds like it COULD be possible

    maybe there needs to be isolation from the circuit with plastic knobs, nylon hardware connecting the case to the PCBs, and a ground wire added from the case to the power plug/usb/midi/audio cables? im no electronics designer but that seems logical. do these things exist already?

    i wonder if the midi input is opto-isolated. im assuming yes because its a standard way to do midi input.

    Hey alien_brain, which knob is it that touching resets the unit? Shoot me an email, rohan@synthstrom.com, and we'll be able to work out a solution.

    i was wrong this happened a number of times recently. i think it has something to do with static electricity. should a static charge reset the deluge?

    That sounds very strange. I've just sent you an email.

    @alien_brain Just had this happen with mine! I had an unsaved project sitting on the deluge over night. I touched the Deluge (not sure where exactly) and got a static shock and the unit reset as though it'd been power cycled.
