I stored my Kronos for some time (a year) and a few days ago I have set it up again.

Some sounds have a digital 'crackling' noise. I started editing a new program and assigned different samples to OSC1. About 50% of the samples of the SGX piano sample set have this crackling noise.

I have upgraded to the last OS version, which didn't help. I have also reloaded the PCG from the harddrive.

So I am thinking that either the SSD is corrupt or the RAM memory is damaged. I have 3GB installed (2GB + 1 GB). I tried to remove the 1GB, but then the Kronos fails to boot.

I bought the Kronos second hand and don't have any DVD's (or even a DVD player).

Has anyone else experienced 'corrupted' sample data?

Do you hear the cracking noise using headphones too?

Check for dirty contacts on the audio jacks. Also the rest of the audio chain. I had something similar a few months ago. It turned out to be the pan pot on the mixer became noisy, rather than the Kronos. A couple of twists of the pot and it was gone.
