So I'm playing around with my synth & recording software and I notice that I can hear a very faint static crackle. It's not just the software, not just the headphones (have 3 diff brands/styles) and it's not just the desktop as I can hear it in the laptop as well.
If I set Audacity to record and don't do anything I record what seems like a very faint analog tape hiss flickering about the -24db level.
I get the same noise if I wear the headphones and click on links around on the web or open programs. With headphones off you can't hear it because of the PC fan. But Audacity proves to me it's there by showing an input level. Anybody know what this noise is? does your PC do that if you have the headphones on but no music and click on things? Is it the processor?
