Hey guys, hope you are all well!
I was having a jam on my deluge the other night and got an electric shock from one of the pads. It hurt a lot and my arm went numb!
So I checked all my connections, everything seemed totally fine all cables are in good condition and the plug and fuse look fine. I turned everything off and reconnected everything and continued my song and got another shock. So I called a day it before I killed myself lol!!!
I am really confused about this one as I have used this setup before and it worked fine without issues so hopefully someone here might be able to help.
My setup is as follows:
Deluge was running off the internal battery - This I then connected directly to the rear inputs powered monitor speakers via 2x balanced TRS cables.
Arturia keylab keyboard - connected to deluge via midi in - keyboard powerd by ac wall socket
Presonus eris E4.5 powered speakers running off the ac wall socket
I contacted my electrician who told me the wall sockets are all earthed and I did check the back of the wall socket and it appears the earth cable is connected. I also tried plugging my multi plug adaptor into another wall socket and still got a shock when using the deluge.
I tried using a different multi socket extension cable incase something was up with the first one I was using and still got a shock so I suspect its not that.
When I got the shock I heard a pop in the speaker before it happened on both occasions. So I suspect something is up with the speakers?? I did take them out of the equation and tried using my portable LG speaker and didn't get a shock again.
So has anyone got any ideas as to why this might happen other than faulty powered speakers?
