Re: focusrite quality

Unfortunately i dont have access to either. The lead is "low impedance". I get just under 1 ohm resistance but continuity is intact across all 3 pins of the XLR lead. I suspect the fault is between the XLR ground and the case of the mic. I may open it to see if i can fix it or at least add a new gro...

focusrite quality

Hi I'm on my second focusrite 2i2 after returning the first because the right outputs didnt work. The second unit is now showing signs of a ground fault - when i touch the body of the mic i get a really loud humming noise via speakers or headphones (both affected equally). If i bridge the metal case...

Good point about analogue vs digital btw, hadnt considered that and it helps me narrow it down. At least i can rule out buffe...
