I fired up the POD X3 yesterday and the white noise was just too much. I don't know how to deal with it because I've never done this before. If anyone has encountered or dealt with these symptoms, it would really help me if you could give me some advice.
The white noise was very bad, even when I tried to connect the microphone and guitar separately. I was connected to my PC at the time, so I recorded with DAW software and the white noise was brilliantly mainstreamed. (Both the microphone and guitar.)
I thought it might be due to the connection to the PC, so I started up the POD X3 with the connection between the POD X3 and the PC disconnected and away from the PC and monitor, and the white noise was terrible even in that state.
Incidentally, I recorded with a POD X3 with a guitar and microphone and with DAW software between February and April of this year, and when I checked yesterday, there was no white noise at all in the recordings from that time.
If anyone knows what causes these and how to remedy the white noise, it would be really helpful to have some advice.
(The white noise is terrible, but the guitars and microphones sound normal. Also, I tried changing the headphones to different ones but no change.)
