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.
My MXL 770 is very low volume and there is a noticeable hiss.
I haven't used it in a while and the last time it was on a different computer and it worked fine.
I use a Neewer 48V 1-channel phantom power supply.
I am not very experienced in troubleshooting this kinda stuff so if anyone could help me thatd be great!
I put an audio clip so you can see what I mean.(gotta crank the volume)

this is what i have going on
I'm starting to record using my Mac, Logic and Roland Quad Capture. Mainly I record electric guitars signal and midi stream. I have not used microphones before but USB mics.
Now I'm trying to use a vintage stereo microphone (Telefunken - SABA - AKG D77) from a tube reel-to-reel recorder from the 60's. It has a 5pin DIN connector that I have split into two TSR mono connectors (not balanced). (The mic is identical to this one
All the while, I recorded my vocal & instruments like guitar directly from the Mics (condenser & dynamic) to the Audio Interface.
And, recently, grabbed a preamp + compressor for recording. Sound is good! In fact, facing an issue ~ Low Input Signal BUT High Hiss Noise Level! This makes me spent a big times to tweak the Denoiser + Expander + Noise Gate to reduced the Hiss Noise. Indeed, quality/colour of the recorded audio like guitar, cello... not as sweet & pretty like the source anymore after the tweaked!
My setting was :
I've been recording my modular synths through my MOTU Ultralite Mk3 Hybrid (using usb) Soundcard into a PC using FL Studio's Edison Recorder and I keep getting this annoying hiss sound on my recordings... Same thing if I record my mixer's (Soundcraft EPM8) monitor outs into the soundcard. It's getting very annoying as I don't have cash for more gear and I'm pretty sure the equipment isn't malfunctioning. All I want is a clean sound. Any advice as to how I can go about fixing this issue?
