    I have a pair of active monitors and they are going directly into my RME fireface 400. But for some reason Im getting heavy static when I turn them on. They are the only speakers going into my Fireface 400 and they are the only speakers with this issue. Heres the weird part though. I only get static in the studio, but when I take the speakers and fireface to another location using the same cables I get no static. Can anyone help?

    Do you have any kind of power conditioning?

    When you plug all of this in, is it in the same electrical device?

    Does plugging into seperate outlets(in studio) make the static go away?

    I'm thinking you have one of those electrostatic air cleaners in or, around your system? Those things are not usable in our round a recording studio. For just that reason.

    It smells funny in here

    Do you use the same cables when you go to other locations?
