ISA 220 Switches to "Bypass" on Switch on

    Hello All,

    Does anyone out there know if it is normal for a Focusrite ISA 220 to switch automatically to bypass mode (bypassing all processors) a few seconds after switch on? Shouldn't it keep previous settings?

    I bought a used one recently and it seems to me unusual + cannot find any reference to it in the instructions.
    Does the 430 also do this?

    I have one ISA 215 that switch from mic input to line input when power on but I have no problem with the bypass switch..strange...

    thanks for that this is somewhat worrying, not that I can say there are any specific problems in use, it is just a strange thing to do.

    You switch it on and after a few seconds the red bypass swith illumunates.

    This may be normal, but I really need to know. Anyone?
