Question about M-Audio Delta 1010 Sound Card

Loud buzz on every output with no audio

My delta 1010 is emitting nothing but an extremely loud hum out of every output. this, i believe, is the result of a blown capacitor due to a series of power failures in my house in combination with poor quality electrical wiring. i would return it back to m-audio only i bought it second hand and they don't want anything to do with it. my assumptions about the cause as well as my troubleshooting techniques could be miles off base, so i would be grateful for any advice that i can get. current setup: mac G4 dual 1.25ghz mdd m-audio delta 1010 pci interface pro tools mpowered 7.1 so far i've tried several cables, swapping pci slots, uninstalling/re-installing drivers and programs, swapping over to P4 PC, spdif and analogue.....all to no avail. please help. thanks.

Re: loud buzz on every output with no audio

Hi, Its a pretty easy fix of your handy with a soldering iron, just replace all of the caps near the power supply. Make sure you replace them with the same or higher voltage rating.

Re: loud buzz on every output with no audio

Look in the computer music mags and look fro M-Audio dealers. Ring them up and tell them the problem your having and see how much it will cost to fix. If it's humming then it's proably broke and needs repairing. Just make sure the sampel rate isn't set too low as well

Hearing double voice when monitoring through delta 1010

Check to see if you have your onboard sound turned on. If you do turn it off and this should stop the double voice.

I don't believe that is going to work, the reason being the operating system will only accept one input device recording at a time...meaning you cannot record with 2 cards simultaneously....the only way you MAY be able to pull this off is if you record with 2 separate programs , and make each program use a different input device....
