Noise when playback is stopped

I notice when I have a few tracks with some eq and compression going and when playback is stopped I can hear a lot of noise like tape hiss. Is this normal for mixbus? Is it supposed to model the real consoles noise or something? It will slowly disappear as I mute tracks.

@ Earwormer :

My guess is that you have "Transport -> Auto Input" engaged: so when you stop the transport, all the tracks switch to input-monitoring. If there are audio inputs connected to each track, then the noise could get pretty loud. You can learn more about the various monitoring modes in our manual: Monitoring - Mixbus v4 - 1

Mixbus applies a very quiet noise for dithering ... somewhere around -100dB ( it will increase with more tracks, just like an analog console ). The dither is a technical necessity for the internal processing; and the only way to hear it is to turn your speakers -way- up.

I hope this answers your question!

Ok thanks Ben, I’ll check to see how I have the input monitoring setup.

The same problem I also faced with my earphone. It created a noise even when the playback was stopped. I visited Hotmail Customer Service to fix this problem. They suggest me to use a good and branded earphone to get rid of this problem.
