Question about M-Audio Delta 1010 Sound Card

2 Answers

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.

    Go to the apple in the left hand corner of your browser click on it and open up SYSTEM PREFERENCES /the speaker symbol click on it and it opens up to show you the choices you have for you sound on your computer. Here you should be able to select the delta 1010 . If it doesn't give you the choice then something is wrong with the card. The PROBLEM I BELIEVE YOU ARE HAVING IS THE BUILT IN SOUND ON YOUR COMPUTER AND THE delta 1010 are both trying to play at the same time. This is how mine acted and this is how I resolved it.........~~~~~~*BB

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.

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

I have a Boston Acoustics VR-500 Subwoofer with a problem. As soon as anything is plugged into the line level RCA jacks, the subwoofer produces a loud buzz/hum. I have tried connecting it to the subwoofer...


I'm thinking you have an open shield ground on the RCA input side. Connecting speaker inputs possibly restores the ground. Try connecting the high level inputs then disconnect the remote end of the cables (floating the grounds).

Then get out an ohmmeter and find that open circuitor or bad solder joint between RCA ground and real ground in the speaker's amplifier. Or.... if speaker ground kills the hum and you want to use RCA Line Level input to the sub, just connect one minus speaker output on your source amp to one minus on the sub's amp.

Hello! I purchased a pair of M- Audio Av 30 speakers years ago and I've noticed that at times they emit an annoying buzzing sound from the subwoofer parts of each speaker. I normally dont notice it because...


LOL. This is a common, easily solveable problem. Remove your cellphone or anything that emits radiation of any sort from the general area. Don't believe me? send a text message while sitting net to your speakers. It does this even if you arent sending a message because your phone sends intermittent signals to the cell tower. the radiation being emitted from the phone does weird things with the magnets inside the speakers.

A couple of weeks after initial setup of my brand new Onkyo XT-SR606 receiver, I noticed a loud buzzing noise that starts up approximately 10 min after the receiver is turned on. The buzzing is definitely...


The "buzz" you hear is a power hum made by the power supply transformer. It's technically called "Lamination hum" caused by the revering of electrical current through the power supply transformer. In some cases the hum can vibrate the chassis causing other loose material to vibrate. If you can, go to your dealer and check to see if other units of this same type typically make a hum this loud, and if not, see if he can solve the problem for you.

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....
