1 turntable rumbling when recording - how to reduce?
some more recording grumbles

trying to record from a 1200 into the emu 1820, I get a quiet (but noticable) rumbling around the 100Hz frequency. Now I heard turntable rumble can be a problem, is there any way to reduce it? I am using clean carts, the vinyl is as clean as poss, anything else I can do?

got a nice bassline i want to nick, but this rumbling is somewhat ruining it.. especially when I do any processing on the sound, it kind of accentuates it

any advice?

You could try to use sofware like Sound Soap...
This software "samples" the dead space before a song starts and "scrubs" the song while it's playing to reduce the ambient noise...
This may help your issue...
I've always used it for high end hiss / Never tried it in the 100Hz range...
I know the hum you're talking about though...

The only other thing is to be sure to isolate as much as possible the turn table from 'connected sources' ie: put foam under it instead of setting it directly on a table...

Hope this helps...
