The thing is, I have the noise even without a plugged cable! It's loudness depends on the Mic input volume, but its always there! But I should write "WAS", was there, because since I tested it with that PCI USB card, my UX1 isn't recognized by podfarm anymore and this pisses me off. Something must have been cahnged in the system that I can't use it anymore, no matter how often I installed all the drivers,monkeys,farms, whatever! ... the newest ones, of course!
the answer of my ticket was this: "Hey Michael, First make sure to download and install the latest Line 6 drivers for your operating system: Windows Drivers 22.214.171.124: http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=4791 Once the drivers are installed you will need to install the Line 6 Monkey application from the links below: Windows Line 6 Monkey 1.62: http://line6.com/getrelease?rid=5415 Once Line 6 Monkey is installed, remove any additional unnecessary USB and firmware devices from your computer when troubleshooting this issue. Make sure to connect it directly to a USB port and not a USB hub, extension, or keyboard of any kind, preferably connect it to a USB port on the rear of computer. Try using additional USB cables and every USB port available until you are able to launch Line 6 Monkey and detect the device. After Launching Line 6 Monkey apply any updates that are available until you have a green check next to each component. Lastly, I would suggest try a different mic cable if you have one. I would also suggest that you try using the mic on another mixing board/audio interface to see how it works. If the mic works fine with other gear, and all of your software is up to date, then unfortunately the problem seems like a hardware problem with the mic input on the UX1.

I'm close to reinstall windows!
