How do you get rid of that annoying fuzz in the background when recording? I hook my guitar > Amp > Computer. No matter what software I use there is fuzz/static. Is there a way to not have it or get rid of it after recording?

Well you could add a noise-gate/noise reduction plug-in to the track if you got one in your recording software smile.gif

I`m certainly no expert here, maybe some of the computer wiz`s we have here could help, but I think some of the fuzz will be unavoidable to an extent, as Toni suggested a noise gate would certainly help. smile.gif

I`d be interested in the replies as I also filter out some degree of hiss etc after recording.

while turning OFF your TV,not just volume smile.gif

Can you write to what pickups are you using, what cables, what interface to connect to computer and what computer speakers, so we can help you better? THanks smile.gif

I would try Muris's suggestion first and also: check your cables, preamp placement and grounding, place any equipment that are 'linked' in a recording chain on a single electrical connection in a star formation to reduce possible earth hum, use balanced cables and if necessary use a DI box before using a noise gate. Generally you should eliminate the problem rather then process it out - in the case of a noise gate if it is poorly set up it can have an adverse affect on your tone.

Cheers,
Tony

Yea I did see a small impovement actually moving my 8 track away from the PC (I use it as a kind of interface) but my hiss/hum was mainly b4 actually playing anything, and the noise gate has worked for me for that, like you say tho, its fairly sensitive, set it too high and you lose sustain, have to get the balance just right smile.gif
