Maybe your sample rate and bit depth in the sound settings need to be changed. I recall I had this problem once when I first started playing with recording. Can't remember what I did exactly but I remember removing and reinstalling drivers and playing with sample rate and bit depth settings till it went away, but it was about 5 years ago. I guess try to match them, the pods setting and the computers settings and/or DAWs settings.

 

I just watched this video to help me better understand Sample Rates and Bit Depth:

I mostly play at home and my own music which is more of a bluesy Jazzy Rock mixture as I'm still learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. In a nutshell I'm always learning and having fun doing it. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not.

I've used EMG active pickups on my PODHD Desktop with no noise problems.  This sounds like an issue with the guitar/pickups.  When you touch the strings with your hands does the noise change or get quieter ?

Yes me too!!

 

Even if it is most likely a guitar related problem try to do a reboot on the bean.

I believe you have to hold down left arrow button when you power up the bean

But before you do that make a backup of your presets if you have you want to keep your own presets because i believe it turns the unit in to how it was when it left the factory.

But i´m not sure i have done that before and still had the newer firmware installed!!

It kind'a sounds like your input level (somewhere in the chain) is too low and your Signal To Noise is out of whack.

Try setting your 2nd input to Variax and it will kill a ton of noise.  It works for me on my HD500.  let me know if it works.        tweekhead (TimThompson)

I've had many guitars over the years with both passive and active pickups that i

always custom wired myself, and my experience's with EMG's have been great

in ALL setups. If your certain your patch or preset isn't contributing to your noise,

then this would suggest to me a problem with the internal wiring of your pickups.

Sometimes the stereo TRS jacks that comes with EMG pickup kits can cause

noise if this jack isn't seated well for all 3 conductors of that jack to your cable.

Move the plug around at different angles while its in the socket to see if this

corrects it, if so, the jack needs attention, if not, the problem may lay deeper in

the wiring/switch/pots. With active pickups, there isn't a grounding connection

made to the trem. Is it a custom after fitting, or bought it loaded with the EMG's ?

Well i have played it through an Avid 11 Rack too wirh the same thing, even through my Pod Farm there is still a little noise like my sample.

The guitar came installed with EMG-81/7's, however I swapped the bridge pick up to a EMG 707 using the quick connect feature. I get this noise through both bridge and neck pick ups.

Because I am getting the noise on Pod Farm too I doubt its the POD HD. I will give it a shot and reboot it and see what happens all the same.
