hissing background noise

Post by remixec » Sat Apr 11, 2009 1:26 pm

I've plugged the Master Output from my Vestax mixer directly into my HP laptop's microphone jack, and have tweaked the levels as best I could. When I record there is a distinct "hissing" background sound... how do I get rid of this "hissing" sound?

If your Vestax mixer is outputting a line level signal, then the microphone input on your laptop is not ideal for recording. Since most (or all) laptops don't have "Line In" inputs, you should probably look at some kind of USB or firewire audio interface.
