Question about AKG Audio Players & Recorders
My c1000s if connected with phantom power to my Apogee Duet makes a low hum/buzz. I've tried unplug everything and run on my laptop with battery and it happened anyway, so it isn't a ground loop problem... it's gotta be the mic right? Switch off the phantom and use the mic with a battery is perfect.
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)

SOURCE: 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.
