Right now I only have demo versions or the E-MU versions of DAWs since I cannot afford full versions and really enjoy using more than one. I recently picked up an external monitor (screen) to use from my laptop to create some much needed workspace (my laptop is 14.1" ) When I open Cubase and Ableton, I get a slight hiss or buzzing from my studio monitors. Volume doesn't change anything and ground loop is not a factor I know for sure (had this issue initially but is solved now). It seems to be directly tied to these programs. Fruity Loops does not do this at all. Moreover, I use foobar to play music through my studio monitors and don't have this issue either. Would anyone know what is causing this? Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section!
