Default Re: High Whine on Playback

Mbox or Mbox 2 experiences whine or high pitched noise while in use
The problem is related to either the computer itself, or to ground loops induced by plugging gear into multiple outlets or just plain bad grounding. The Mbox is generally not the culprit.

The following steps can help resolve the issue:

1) Plug all gear into the same outlet and/or make sure your outlets have a good ground.
2) Use TRS (balanced) cables from the outputs of the Mbox.
3) Get a Monster 'Ultimate Performance' USB Cable
