1 Constant Buzz!!
Ok im a newbie to recording, basically I got a friend making tracks and were recording vocals over the tracks using Sonar 3 and 4. I just bought a MXL 990 with a ART Tube MP Studio preamp. I have a Soundblaster live LS card and have the the preamp mic output plugged into the mic in on the card and I hear a constant buzzing sound like a bee......with the input and output levels all the way down when I cut my speakers up I still hear it.....I been reading this forum for a while and upon some suggestions tried using Line in on my card but I get no mic levels on Sonar like thiers no mic plugged in but the buzzing goes away....Help me please Im puzzled.... :?:

Currently I have a

Gateway
P4 2.6 ghz
SoundBlaster Live LS card

Ok I got a 1/4 stereo cable coming from my preamp to my card.....Of course I had to buy a 1/8 adapter so it would plug in, upon looking it is a mono 1/4 to 1/8 adapter. Should I be recording vocals only in stereo or mono...Ive got about 30 tracks recorded in mono because I read on the Sonar forum that your supposed to record vocals in mono not stereo.....Could this be my problem? I need a 1/4 to 1/8 STEREO adapter?

Sorry about alll the questions...
