Hey everyone! Need some other people's point of views on the situation in hopes it can be fixed. :P I have a UX1 w/ Podfarm 2.5. I usually use it for voice recordings, no instruments. I've spent a long time editing settings, still unable to get perfect sound for my microphone. I use a lot of noise gates because for some reason there is a lot of background noise I presumed were fans from microphone pickup. I always thought this was weird since this room is practically sound proof, and I can barely hear the fans, but I always shrugged it off. Well today when I was testing microphones I made a discovery. I was in the middle of switching them out when I noticed after I unplugged one, there was still the same fan noise with nothing plugged in... For some reason, there is this constant noise being created in the device. It gets louder when I adjust the input of the device, which is horrible since I need it at the "bad" level for my microphone to pickup anything. I've been doomed to bad audio since I have to turn on multiple noise gates to somewhat block the strange noise, but of course it degrades microphone quality. The background noise is constant with something plugged in or not. I use the device as my entire sound card as well, for input and output. So my question is, can anyone help me? I'm down for any advice you may have, or maybe you guys have presets for your pod farm you think might help that I should try. I hope I haven't been sold a faulty UX1. I'm using an AT20-20 microphone XLR'd to a PHP1 Phantom Power Supply, that is then XLR'd to the UX1 that is then USB'd to the PC.

I'm having trouble with a buzzing sound on my HD 500. On a clean setting, it's more of a hiss, but once you turn on distortion, it's more of a buzz (or buzz kill, as the case may be!). It seems like a grounding issue with the device. No matter where I'm playing--at home, in the rehearsal studio, or at gigs--it's the same thing. This leads me to think it's not a problem with the quality of the electricity. I play through a few different amps, from tube to solid state, depending on the situation. Always the same problem. Also, I still get it using different guitars--Les Paul or Strat, it's the same thing. The buzzing is worse when I have the USB cable connected. It's also worse when I use distortion--the more distortion, the worse it is. I was doing some searches on this, and I see that other people have similar problems. I've tried re-setting the global settings, but no joy. I'm using the 1/4" input. Anyone have any ideas?
