This question already has an answer here:
I have an electric guitar (Yamaha Pacifica 112V) and I am using it with a Steinberg UR-22 on a Macbook Pro. When I plug in the guitar to the UR22 I can hear noise coming through the input, even if I do not even pull a string. The noise is very noticeable and is comparable to white noise. I can hear the noise structure changing from time to time and if I touch a knob on my guitar the noise gets way less noticeable.
What can be the reason for that noise?
- This is the noise of when the guitar is plugged into UR-22
- This is the noise of the UR when nothing is plugged in (not even the guitar cable)
It is hard to decide, but I guess it is EMI buzz?
