Blurry Passage Output

Not sure if this is a new problem for me or just something I never noticed before, but definitely noticing now that my Passage (bought used a few months ago) seems to have a not insignificant amount of blurring/smear.

Is this normal behavior?

Example 1 (raw square wave from Vidiot directly into Visual Cortex):

Example 2 (square wave into Passage and then Cortex):

Example 3 (square wave into Passage with negative bias applied and then Cortex):

I just tried this myself and I do notice a tiny tiny touch of softening on a square wave VCO, but it’s not nearly as pronounced as your example.

Do all channels of Passage produce this result?

Yes. Using both the in and thru inputs.

If you’re using just Passage and Cortex, isolated on the power supply, do you get the same blur?

Tried isolating both together. Also tried isolating just the Passage in its own case (with Cortex in another). And tried a few different power cables, in case a faulty cable was causing some sort of power issue. Same result each time.

If I dial in the bias just right (a tiny bit to the negative side), I can maybe get it to be a little less blurry looking. But I imagine that is just because I am making it a tiny bit darker, so the blur is less apparent.


Thanks for trying different configurations and conditions. Do you want to send it in to LZX HQ for a deeper investigation? If so, please send a message to Sorry for the trouble.
