Can someone share their ESU EMF settings when used with Tillig locos please?

Hmmm. Don't know. For the time being I have left pretty much everything at factory settings except for the address and a couple of speed curves.

Gotcha. The reason I ask is that the hum from the EMF annoys me. It's not a single loco - they all do it. But if EMF is turned off, there is virtually no low speed regardless of starting voltage settings or speed curve changes.

Is the hum at all times or just when the loco is running?

When running. It's not very loud but I can hear it. It's one of the issues I had with the Blue Tiger - I ended up shutting the EMF off and adjusting the speed curve to compensate. The Tillig's don't seem to have that sweet spot (or I haven't found it yet).

Sorry, man, I don't have any insights. I assume the hum is okay without the decoder?

The hum is 100% from the back EMF setting - not the decoder itself. EMF off = hum off.
