Ok i'm not new to recording but this is about to make me bust my motu into pieces. System Compaq EVO610 1GB Ram Pentium IV Sybia Firewire Card Nuendo 3 Motu 8PRE Alesis ADAT I can record just fine set my mixes and record track 1. WHen i go to playback through the MOTU outs or headphones? I get this loud white noise. If you bring down the master fader (or channel) in Nuendo to almost no existent it clears up and you can hear what you recorded. As soon as you go past a certain point on the master it does the horrible noise again. I've checked everything I can think or. What is getting me is I went to a friends studio booted up my laptop and plugged straight into his Motu 828 hit play in Nuendo and it was perfect put all sliders at 0 and trucked on. Plug back into my 8PRE and i get this noise again. Please someone help me. This has got on my last nerve. I even sent it back and had them send me another unit just to be safe still the same problem. I tried even setting it as windows default audio playback and it does it when playing itunes and suck. I noticed it has intermittent clicks and pops every now and then when opening programs these last a minute or two, well in that mintue if you press play the 8pre works fine as soon as the pops sto pi get the noise again. Someone please tell me you can help because MOTU support is %^&*(.
