Okay, so here's the deal - I'm recording a chamber music festival this week and I'm having a terrible problem with noise. Specifically, I'm having a problem in that I'm picking up a spanish radio station as clear as a bell through my recording rig. Here's the problems - 1 - Location = church in the middle of a mildly heavily populated area. It was built over 200 years ago. None of the outlets are grounded and I can't find anything that will act as a suitable ground so I've had to lift it. 2 - I have to live with relatively long cale runs. Here's what I've done - 1 - tried replacing cables using different shielding methods. (no luck) 2 - tried placing a better power conditioner in line (no luck) 3 - tried running off of battery (no luck - indicating to me that it's not the power) 4 - Made sure all cables are straight with no loops (no luck) 5 - used a 3 foot cable with and without load on the preamp (no luck) 6 - used NO cable and simply turned up the gain on the preamp (no luck - Millennia and Grace) Any ideas? I already recorded a portion of the concert on Tuesday. I have more to record tonight and Friday. BTW, I recorded in this church around Christmas and had the exact same problem. Thoughts, suggestions, ideas??? All are welcome! Cheers, J.
