First Im kind of new to using more equipment than just an guitar,amp and FX processor.
I recently asked how to split my signal for recording so that I can record my amp and also at the same time a clean signal so I could use to reamp or play with VST plugins such as Amplitube and such.
I was told I would need a preamp mixer and was suggested that I get a Behringer Xenyx802.
I chose to get the 502 model since I didnt need more. Well I have it working but heres the issue.
I run guitar into 502 mic/preamp mixer then one out to my amp multi FX.
I then ruin another out to my M-Audio sound card.
Now as soon as I connect the cable from the M-Audio to the mixer output I get a very annoying humming from the amp I use.
If I unplug it,it goes away. It does not record this sound,its just audible through my amp.
Also I use a Boss GT-8 and Tech21 sound engine for my amp these days since I only play for myself.
This is the exact connections I use:
- guitar to Behringer 502 mic pre/mixer.
- Behringer 502 mic pre/mixer out #1 to GT8 input
3.GT8 output to Tech21 Sound Engine
4.Boss GT spdif out to M-Audio(PC)
- Behringer 502 mic pre/mixer out #2 to M-Audio(PC) This cable plugged in gives me the hum only into the amp,not the PC or in recordings.
Is there anything I can do to reduce this?
Like I said Im new to using anything more than guitar,amp and effects.
