Noise when recording but only when not playing

My setup is: Synth Hooked up to mixer and from there main out XLR to XLR input of Zoom H4n handy recorder.

It sounds actually pretty darn good when im playing stuff from the synth but as soon as there is nothing playing there comes quite a bit of white noise. What the heck is causing this? Anyone else run into this?

In a way it's not a problem since there is NO noise when the synth is playing but when all sounds are stopped the noise sets in.

What gives? Any synth heads run into this?

You just need to troubleshoot it, as noise can be caused form 100 different things. so take out and /or replace everything in your signal chain, including software effects.

The first thing i would do is remove your mixer out of the equation and see if the noise persist. If not, proceed to remove or replace everything else, one thing at a time
