Picked up a Q1202USB to record a podcast with. Been testing it out before hopefully recording tomorrow. I've been getting a heap of hiss from the mixer. I've played with every knob and none of them eliminate it (minus setting the main mix to 0).
Assuming it was coming from the mics I unplugged them all and recorded some dead sound and it's still there - loud as day. I've tried the mixer on multiple USB ports, multiple computers and even experimented plugging it straight into mains or through a surge protected board. Nothing effects it.
Is it a faulty board or is there something I'm missing? I can possibly clean it a bit in post but at the moment it's overwhelming when just recording clean vocals.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
