could someone help me figure out this noise? (.mp3 attached)
I've got a one-room studio I'm working on recording an EP in.. Had this issue initially with an M-Audio Profire 2626 and thought it might be a problem with the interface, but I upgraded to a Mackie Onyx 1640i and have the exact same problem.. CPU is a Macbook Pro.
I'm getting this background noise in my recordings. It doesn't happen all the time, maybe about 30-40% of the time. Doesn't sound like a ground loop, more like some kind of interference or something. But the thing is, it only occurs in tracks recorded into pro tools post ADC. When I play music in iTunes it's not there, and when I monitor the tracks analog off the board it's not there. It's getting added to the signal during ADC it seems..
Anyone have any ideas as to what this is and how I can get rid of it? Thanks!
