Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Buzz I have an am62 that has a lot of 60 cycleish buzz. Moving the 6 pin mic cable effects the amount of buzz greatly and it is often possible to fiddle around with this cable placement until the buzz is gone. However this is not an a great way to work "next take please don't move and hold the mic cable just above your right eye brow ok?" It seems like a grounding issue to me but I have not been able to solve it. Any help would be great thanks patrick

    Yes I think so too but I have not been able to solve the problem. I have tried disconnecting the grounds and reconnecting them this seems to have no bearing on the buss. Also tried testing the grounds for conductivity and they all seemed to be fine.

    also
    I found that pluging directly into an m-box totally eliminates the buzz but going
    through any other pre amp (sytek, api, neve, summit audio) and or
    anyother digi interface 002 or HD yeild tons of buzz.

    any thoughts?
    and or advice on how to trouble shoot this issue?

    thanks a ton

It sounds like the mic has a bad ground.

This could either be in the connector at the end, or the cord itself.

    If you can find a problem at the connector itself, then you might consider shortening the wire on the bad end and resoldering it to the connector. With any luck you will cut out the bad spot.

C1000s hum/buzz on phantom power


possibly the microphone needs more power than your sound card can supply although I cannot imagine as the duet is a good piece of equipment.
Is the duet USB bus powered?
Have you tried another cable? Possibly one wire is defective which means that phantom power will superpose the audio signal. In this case you might hear a hum. By the way this results in 6dB of signal loss. This is why XLR plugs have 3 wires. If connected with a 1/4" jack it has to be a stereo plug (tip, ring, sleeve)

Buzz coming from elec. guitar pickups only when using Aviom and headphones


It is a definite pickup grounding issue causing hum/"buzz" which diminishes when touching strings. Check the impedance of cable jack inputs and cable which should be 1/4"mono input/output jacks) . A personal preference but effective is to NOT run guitar direct into mixer but through an external amp w/ a headphone out jack . Noise gating/preamp filter also will help eliminate the "buzz"/noise from pickups. It is unfortunately the nature of the "electro-magnetic" beast when it comes to electric guitar pickups .Hope this helps.

Audio buddy buzz


Background 50 or 60 Hz buzz can be radiated from nearby wiring or conducted. Grounding is important but that can also be a cause. I suggest you search accidental hum loops.

Poor or faulty power supply regulation or smoothing can inject a mains hum into audio. This would need checking with an oscilloscope which could also be used perhaps to help search for the source.
Radiated hum can be picked up and injected into high gain amplifier inputs and long leads, poor screening and impedance mismatch can make things much worse.

I haven't helped much but I hope I have given you food for thought and further research.

Whenever I use one of the cleaner amp models i get an aggravating buzz. The buzz only occurs when I play and is not constant. (The buzz is not there when I'm not playing). At first I thought my strings...


Try moving your guitar around and oriented differently as it MAY be picking up magnetic fields from equipment in the area. Some pickups really are sentive to interference.

The effects for modeling MAY have a noise gate that requires a certain signal level before unmuting which would explain why you have to be playing to open the gate and hear noise that is really there all teh time but muted.

Low volume from passive mics !! I'm using stage mics (Shure SM-58s) and the signal is barely showing on the meter. I've tried turning up the input volume...I cranked it up so high that I'm getting...


Hi, first of all,you need to troubleshoot your connecting cables, and also check the Mic cable that your using for the Mic (shure SM-58s).

I would advice that if your using the Mic for studio recording,i think to get a good job done, if you can afford it,you go for a condenser and a good soundcard,i think that will do,and also get good cables for connections.

Hope it helped..

Thanks for using fixya....

I play Gibson USA Sgs, one with 490/498 humbuckers and one with 57classics....The Amp has a loud buzz like feedback all the time on the overdrive channel.


If the amp is quiet with cables unplugged at the same settings as observing the buzz, the amp is OK.

In this case, cables and/or shielding and wiring in the guotar is suspect.

Guitar pickups are sensitive to magnetic fields and you can search out these fields by moving and orienting your guitar to find maximum buzz.

If the amp has objectional buzz with teh cables UNPLUGGED then the amp needs servicing. Filter capacitors among other things are suspect.

My powered mixer Behringer is buzzing


Make sure the buzz doesn't happen because of feedback of speakers into mics. When feedback is processed it often goes to a buzz instead of the usual howl.

Also check that you are running adequate inout into the effect since a very low inout will incur digitizing noise and loss of signal=to-noise ratio.

Need local repair help in Central NJ


Where is the broken pin located? My suggestion is to buy another Mic. In my experience no matter how you fix it you'll end up getting another problem. Like a Buzz or the mic will start cutting out. Sometimes it'll effect the frequency.

A buzzing sound


The cables always a usual suspect, but if you are using a tube mic, wich have their own power supply, you don't use phantom power and it can damage the mics power supply, so take phantom power off that mic and if that doesn't cure the buzz then I would change the cable next.

Sound card broken? No normal sound and a constant buzz...


Sounds like you tried everything possible. Based on what you have stated that you tried already I would agree with your diagnosis of a bad sound card.
If this was my Laptop I would be looking for a nice set of USB speakers and Microphone or a headset.
You can either keep the speakers turned down or you may be able to disable the onboard sound through a BIOS setting.

Or even better. Here is a USB sound card with speaker and microphone jacks. Pretty Cheap too.
