Buzzing Noise in Sound Studio

Is there a way to get rid of a buzzing noise when I record in Sound Studio for Mac?

It's there when I record/play back audio - and I detect the same buzzing when I choose "Soft play-thru" in the input levels box...

Is there a way to get rid of it, or at least significantly reduce it?

I am getting my audio under the white noise...if that helps at all...

Im recording my piano on garage band, how can i get rid of the noise coming from my laptop


Plug-in a set of headphones. This will (mechanically) disable the built-in speakers. Actually, any plug inserted into the "headphone-output" jack will mechanically "mute" the speakers.

I have a Encore 5.1 Sound card and have installed it. My problem is that I don't get a normal sound input when I bring in the output of my cassette player into any of three ports I have in my pc, front,...


When you install the sound card drivers, they disable ALL motherboard sound functions, and enable them on the sound card, meaning you can do the same things, with better quality, you just need to connect everything to the soundcard or it won't work. SO then you cannot connect any sound to the front of the computer anymore, but a soundcard should have plenty of connections on the back side of the PC.

From what I understood from your story, you switched cassette players AND installed a sound card. If I were you I'd first install the sound card drivers, then try to play audio with the old cassette player, and see wether that works. If it does, your new cassette player has another (if at all) output than the old one. Then you'll just have to use the old one. If it does not work, your soundcard is the problem, which seems a bit odd. Soundcards are usually meant to do more than on-board sound, not less. I'd contact your manufacturer and ask wether it's normal this doesn't work, or that the card's broken.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Buzzing sound in my speakers when I switch to the phono stage


It is a grounding issue with the turntable most likely. Some turntables came with a ground wire that you attached to the receiver. You can also try a power strip that has a line filter incorporated to get rid of the hum. Check the local stereo shoppe to see if they carry them.
You may also want to replace the audio cable that connects the turntable to the amp with a good quality shielded cable. If it has bad shielding it will pick up electrical interference and even radio interference as well.
Turntable inputs on receivers have a preamp built in and the gain for each type of pickup is different. The pickup is either ceramic or magnetic and if I remember correctly, the ceramic pickup needed more gain than the magnetic one. The preamp will definitely make a ground hum a lot more audible.

Cheers and good luck.

IBM COMPUTER -- SOUND BLASTER SOUND CARD PROBLEMS


Hi,
I presume you are going in through the mic socket on the audigy?
If so the most likely cause is a mismatch between the mic and the mic amplifier on the card, they are designed for cheapo condenser mikes that have a fairly high output.

Also make sure you disable any inputs that ar'nt in use to minimize noise.

If you have the Mike plugged into the line in you have it in the wrong socket.

The best way to get a good result is use an external mic amp or mixer and go in through the line in. Again make sure you disable any inputs your not using (in the computer mixer) and turn down any sliders on the external mixer that ar'nt in use to minimize noise.

If you'r still having problems get back to me with a more detailed description of your setup, whats plugged into where etc...

Best of luck
