    Hey there Luis,

    I also use the V1 board. Do you get this noise when you’re using the 386 amp chip, or without. In my ignorance, I neglected to place decoupling capacitors on the ICs on the first version of the board. In practice, it means that there’s lots of noise when using the board with the amp chip. I would suggest not using the amp unless you’re driving an 8 Ohm speaker directly – I haven’t found a reason to use the amp chip when going into a mixer or when using powered speakers. If you really need to use the amp, you may consider adding decoupling caps as per the second version of the board (look for caps marked 104 that are not present on the first board).
