BRW Posted October 30, 2018 Share Posted October 30, 2018 I bought a vintage Roland M-120 line mixer for synth / sampler summing purposes, because I've been getting into buying more hardware again. I've connected it to my Yamaha n8 Firewire audio interface, that's going into my Mac with a pair of balanced XLR cables. I'm getting a fair bit of noise, though. Mild, but still. The M-120's main outputs are supposed to be clean and quiet (the monitor outputs are supposedly more noisy), so I'm wondering why. The Master output is at a moderate level, at 12 o'clock. Here is an example (.AIF recording). NOTE: this is recorded with the audio interface's "Pad" switches off so this is exaggerating the problem in a major way - just for demonstration purposes. It's not nearly this bad. Is this normal? What should I do about it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
