MX1 and Scooper NOISEY!!!!

Postby Mark76 » 17:47, 21 January 2017

Making some progress at understanding the Scooper works but I cant help thinking that the Scooper and MX1 has a lot of background noise.

The gain is at 0 but still when I turn channel 3 on the MX1 up there is an audible 'hiss' and a 'whooshwhooshwhoosh' in the background so much so that it shows up on the registers in Ableton (yes I have it in EXT mode through Ableton) and also on recordings.

In fact all non USB (Aira) channels seems to be hoiser than I would like on the MX1 which is a bit disappointing on a mixer like this.

I'm a bit of a newby on this so any advise would be great. What levels do you set your MX1 at? Anyone found the same problem? Any advice?

Thanks in advance

In the past hour I've read a few posts complaining about hiss and noise of Aira gear I'm surprised I haven't read a possible easy fix which is to plug in the AC power adapters. Use the AC power adapters on all Aira/Roland units not just the MX-1. Does it reduce the noise?

The audio over usb is also often causing ground loop noises, which is easy to fix with a ground loop isolator or DI box. I also had hiss on my MX-1, fixed this by adding a DI box between the mixer and my active speakers.
