Q: I want to buy some of your TT10 TRS cables, are these the right cables for my studio monitors to run to my Mbox? The ones I have make annoying buzzing sounds. I really need balanced cables.
If your Mbox is buzzing there can be many causes of that, balanced cables help but they won't solve every issue.
Some tips to fix earth loops
1. Try and use just 1 earth for all electrical items in the signal path
2. Where possible, use the shortest cables you can
3. Make your set up as simple as possible first, then gradually add in extra layers of complexity. If you are suddenly getting noise you can troubleshoot this by eliminating those variables.
