    I'm hearing a buzzing noise...

    I have a behringer xenyx 1204 and when I hook it up in my computer I hear a humming noise almost like a vacuum cleaner. I tested and it wirked ok but I moved the mixer and now I get a humming sound... what can it be?

    make sure ur using great cables , magonomi is wat id prefer

    n well

    sorry to say this

    but

    with behringer, ur alwayz gonna have a humm, its juz the quality of the pre-amp is bad

    ur also gonna want a ac power cleaner, monster power pro3500 is the lowest ud wanna get, clean power stage 3 is the lowest that will last a lifetime

    Could be a ground loop. Could be inductive noise from the mixer being too near a florescent light source or a CRT.

    We had a low buzzing in our music studio. Turned out it was just a bad xlr mic cable. Just a thought.

    even a Cell phone with the right Hz output could give this to you

    True. I always forget this, as I immediately recognize the patterned frequency pulses that cellphones put out to try to talk with their towers (and I instinctively shut mine completely and tell others to shut theirs when entering a production space).

    Check you cabling, and maybe try running the mixer on a different AC circuit. The pre's in the Behringer aren't so bad that they'd be the root cause. I've had an older Behring board for yers and have given it plenty of road abuse and it is still clean when I use it to record.

    Real power conditioning should not come into play unitl you are drawing high current amounts, unless you live in a really old building, then it might be worth the extra $$. also check that your sending a balanced signal into your mixer, you might want to invest in a PCDI by Whirlwind, it takes your 1/8" stereo jack output through two transformers and gives you two balanced XLR outputs to go to your mixer (left and right)...
