I am just setting my recording studio, I hope you can help me and accept my very basic questions.
My devices consist in:
AKG 414 LTD mic;
SPL Channel One preamp;
Fireface 400 UCX;
The mic is connected to the pre-amp through a XLR cable. From the output of the pre-amp a balanced cable goes to an analog input of the Fireface.
Now I am trying to record, with the Phantom switched on, and what I see is that if I increase (after 30 dB) the mic-gain in the Channel One I start hearing a quite strong low frequency disturb. I need to increase the gain because otherwise the signal is very weak.
With this interference the quality of the recording would be unacceptable
May you shine a light on what is happening?
It would be great.
You probably have some sort of ground issue - Try changing every
You probably have some sort of ground issue - Try changing everything in the chain out, one piece at a time.
But yeah, this has about as much to do with mastering as ---- well, as much as a ground hum in a tracking chain would have to do with mastering.
