Topic: AIO Pro - background noise as soon as I open DAW
I have the card as the main audio for my Windows 11 system. I hear no noise when monitors (via breakout cable XLRs) are on and it's just on the desktop. As soon as I open a DAW (I've tried Cubase, Reason and Audition), this horrible background machine noise appears. It's drowned out by music, but even more noticeable on the headphone output, where everything that requires the CPU or GPU to process something results in more noise. This is a pretty expensive system and it's driving me nuts. I'm wondering if the video card is causing interference. Other than that, everything is plugged into the same multi-power socket extension that has power conditioning and an RF interference filter.
