Mix Codex::Kore 2 User pages ‘jumping’ / changing when moving knobs to adjust sound parameters

I have been delving ‘under the hood’ with Native Instruments Kore 2 lately and I am having a problem with the hardware. Quite frequently I will be editing a parameter with the knobs and the user page switches to a different page. Obviously this is annoying as I am then editing the wrong parameter!

I am guessing you may have found this page as you are having the same problem? Well, you are in luck! Check out the solution below.






Solution/Workaround: This is definitely an electrical interference problem which is not alone solved with good earth as discussed in this thread (I checked with a multimeter).

On a similar note here is a video discussing the use of footswitches:
