Hi all, this morning I tried to record some sounds with my dad's iMac and the Logic Pro X software. My signal chain was as follows: Stratocaster-> cheap audio interface -> iMac. It was very hard to tame the background him which only occurs when I'm playing; in fact, the guitar is dead silent if the strings are not vibrating. It's not like a ground problem or whatever, it literally is only when the strings are oscillating. I am still trying to learn how to use the software so I did find a noise gate feature, but it seemed useless. I noticed that "creating" a new amp and removing the cab reduces the noise, as if Logic was emulating a real amp hissing a little bit at high volumes. But this hiss does bother me quite a bit. At least with Audacity on my PC I could get rid of the background noise (sacrificing lots of frequencies but still), I can believe a 200€ program doesn't let me edit that. What could the problem be?
