Audio Interface, periodic buzzing

Hey,

I hope this is the right place to ask this question..

so I got a new Motu M2 Interface about a month ago. Since then there are periodic buzzing sounds coming from the Headphone Amps at "random" times. Sometimes it runs 3 hours without a Problem and sometimes the buzzing happens twice in 5 minutes. Turning the Interface off and on again "fixes" the buzzing temporarily.

Hybrid Buffer in Daw

I've noticed several daws are implementing a form of hybrid buffer (reaper, studio one, cubase?, Possibly others) where there is a separate buffer for the audio playback tracks and the tracks record enabled. This allows you to have a low buffer on the record enabled tracks, for low latency, and high buffer on the playback tracks for maximum DSP power.

Just curious if anyone out there is using a daw with hybrid buffer, and how the experience has been.

Background noise?

Hi, I'm kind of new to this. I am recording audio and getting a constant sort of noise. I've included a sample where the noise has been recorded by itself.

I'm currently running a setup where the audio comes from a wireless Shure microphone receiver, to a live mixing console. A Presonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI mixing console. The console is used for live sound mixing.

Where do most audio engineers live?

While searching for information on audio engineering, google highlighted this:

Although there are abundant audio engineer jobs in America, a large number of them are in the Northeast. Oregon is the best state in the country for audio engineer jobs, and Maine has the second-highest median salary in the country. Oregon is the best state for jobs for audio engineers, and Rhode Island is the worst.
