ZED10FX Hiss/Noise with USB

I have a ZED10FX mixer that I use for Zoom calls with a guitar, a mic and a backing track. I use the USB out from the ZED to the computer, and choose that USB input as the "microphone" in Zoom. The problem I've been having is that (only) when the ZED gets connected from the USB to a computer, there's a high pitch noise or hiss that comes out through the mains, the aux and the headphone out of the mixer.

Looking for feedback on my Cloud Rap song

Hello everyone,

My name is Choof, I am an indie artist from Ontario, Canada. I just released a new song and am looking for feedback on the vocal mix. I work in Logic Pro, and used EQ, Compressor, De-esser, pitch correction, and a little reverb/chorus on a bus. I also layer my vocals.

I'm very new to mixing my own vocals, so any feedback would be great!

Thanks

Line hum with DSLR on AC adaptor and external mic

Profile picture for user Simeon54

Hello all,
Firstly, my gear for this issue
EOS Canon 70d DSLR
Rode VideoMicro
Neewer ac adapter

I have set up my camera to record myself talking.
The mic i've got is a consumer external mic, cost about £60.
Whilst using battery power with the camera all is fine, but if I use the AC adapter to power the camera, I get a loud powerline hum.
I've had a chat with a friend who works for Dynaudio and he confirmed that it was noise from the mains.

It's a Bank Holiday - if you are bored here's a bass quiz.

A group I'm in to do lockdown quizzes - got us all to do a nominated round - I got given a bass round to do. Now it's over I'll share it if anyone is bored silly!

Basically - the bass line from ten songs that I've played live at UK holiday centres, cruise ships and theatres over the years. Played as is - so yes, there are mistakes, but it was a quick and dirty quiz, so I know I messed quite a bit up, but that's life. If you fancy a go - most quite easy, but a few kick you when you get the answers.

Microphone not working

Hello I have this issue, one day I was talking with my friends on discord everything was cool, other day I switched from headphones to speakers because at that moment I did not needed my headphones, but later that day I switched again from speakers to headphones and my microphone wasn't working... It doesn't detect my voice for some reason but there is some buzzing sound.. I tried everything I even tried to reset my pc but that didn't work... I'm adding some sounds from my microphone: https://vocaroo.com/14NLtNQ9AIcz

The invention of digital audio recordings liberated sound engineers in many ways which were not possible in the analog era. Even with all the tools at one’s fingertips, musicians and engineers sorely missed the sound and sonics of earlier recordings. The magic that the recording mediums imparted by default and one which was taken for granted.

Female TRS wall jack for a speaker connection?

Hi, I'm currently wiring up a couple of panels for a wall in a studio sound booth. The panels are already loaded with female XLR and female horizontal TRS jacks. I would like to designate one of the 1/4" TRS jacks for an amplifier to speaker cabinet connection.
Can I use one of these existing female 1/4" TRS jacks for a speaker connection if I wire it with two conductor stranded 16 awg? Or will I need to replace the jack specifically with a speaker 1/4" jack?
The remaining jacks will be wired with shielded three conductor 22 awg.
Thanks.
