I am a beginner and playing acoustic for last 2 and 1/2 year. After this i grew interest in Electric, so i bought a Squier Strat and as per suggestion of my music teacher a Zoom G1Xon. When i connect the processor directly to the home theater/ P.A. system, it sounds awesome, but when i connect it to my PC for recording the tracks (Using Adobe Audition 2015 or Nuendo 6.5) it catches a plenty of noise. I initially replaced the cables and the batteries also tried various tones but all in vain. As a result the tracks recorded by me have a plenty of noise. Is there any problem with the processor? or everyone has the same issue? Please suggest. Regards, Kunal
I realise this is a year too late but I thought I would answer for future viewers with the same problem.
This is exactly as 'teodozjan' says in the comments above, the noise is being generated from the on-board sound card in the laptop. What you need is an audio interface such as the Focusrite Scarlett, M-Audio M-Track, etc. These devices have much better analog to digital conversion than on-board sound cards hence far better signal to noise ratio.
Even a really cheap audio interface such as the Behringer UM2 U-Phoria Audiophile (£45 on Amazon at time of writing) will be considerably better than being plugged straight into the laptop.
Some multi-fx pedals can now be used as an audio interface themselves, check out the Zoom G3. You can plug this pedal into your laptop/PC via USB and all the analog to digital conversion is then done by the pedal.
