Loud pop and LED flash powering on/off OB-6

Loud pop and LED flash powering on/off OB-6
« on: April 22, 2021, 02:28:58 PM »
Hey guys! When I turn off or on the OB-6 I get a large pop sound and the LED flashes on/off then back on and it's good.
I just got the OB-6 and I've never seen this on my Prophet 12, so I was just wondering if its normal. Seems like it just takes a big surge of energy which may be normal. But I now make sure I'm not wearing headphones when I turn off/on because it's a pretty harsh click.

Thank you :)
