When I have my amp's gain channel running, I can hear noise in the background when the tempo light flashes on the Repeater. Anyone else ever have this problem? If so, what did you do about it?

What are you powering it with?

I’ve encountered it before: For a while I had two delays on my board, both powered with a non-isolated supply. The pulse in time with the LED was really noticeable with the other one, even on cleaner settings. The repeater’s pulse was much quieter, but I could hear it if I listened for it- and it became more obvious with higher amp gain settings.

Switching to an isolated power supply fixed it for me. I’ve not noticed it at all in the nearly two years since doing so (I've since removed the other delay, but am still using the repeater)

I had a Nova Delay and heard the tempo tick when running it with a VD PP2+. Turned out my drive pedal was too close to the power supply.
