Please, HELP! Encoder knob changing values on its own.

Hi there,

Today, I have experienced a very strange issue with my Tempest and I am very, very worried.

Some knobs like Resonance and Audio Mod, mainly these two, are changing values on their own. I recorded a short movie representing the issue, please see below:

Does any of you have an idea how to fix it? Just please, don't tell me that my Tempest died.

I am the first owner of this unit and have it probably for over 3 years now, never had any issue with it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best,
Noise.

Contact support to send you some pots and find an electrician near you to solder it for you or else you could send T to support if youíre near San Fran or you could solder it yourself if you feel comfortable with it..
