Okay, I have a toneport GX. Until recently it's been fine. But last night it did this thing where I was just playing, and then suddenly (or rather gradually, but over 4-5 seconds not just like a sudden "boom") this huge buzzing static noise would override anything I do. When I play while it's doing this it won't go away and sounds terrible, so I don't. I've tried different cords so that's not it. However when I unplug the cord for a second then plug it back in, it's normal again for 15-20 seconds or so, then it starts again.

It seems to do it every time. Any help? Is it a grounding problem or something? I don't much about that stuff when it comes down to it so I'm a bit helpless. This isn't my main rig so it's not stopping me from playing or anything but if its persistent then I can't record, so I'd have to buy something new.

Im pretty sure it about your drivers. Try to adjust you buffer size or something. Were you working inside of a host app ar just jamming in gearbox only?

TP can get stupid sometimes because of the poor drivers. (they advertise them as "rock solid" and that is NOT the truth. )

I messed with the buffer size and bit depth, turning them both up all the way and all the way down and it doesnt seem to make much difference. When I change the buffer size next to "tone direct monitoring" it stopped for a moment but then started right back up again.

By the way thanks for the assistance guys smile.gif

I wouldnt be surprised if it was broken actually, they're really easy to break, the first night I got mine me and my mate were fiddling with it and managed to get it to flash red and go off by 'overloading' it, I thought we'd knackered it on the first night, luckily for me it was just a pull the plug and put it back in job.

Not really very sturdy at all.

Aye I'll probably be getting a new one soon unfortunately. I was recently going to ask if the upgrades (metal shop, etc) for it were worth it but I don't think I'll be getting those now.

As far as I'm aware problems can also be caused feedback wise by sitting too close to monitor speakers - mine makes an inordinate amount of feedback generally.

Okay. I think the problem is my guitar. I hooked up to my amp so I could play tonight (usually I use the toneport with some headphones when just jamming at night) and the same thing happened. I was going crazy - I thought maybe it had to do with my power source or something like that or that it was indeed the cord but to test I grabbed my telecaster and it is fine through the amp and the toneport. While this is good news for my recordings, it's not so good for my guitar...

Is it just something to do with the input jack? Switching pickups does nothing, cutting the stereo switch down to mono does kill the noise.

Hopefully this will be a cheap fix? You guys would know better than I tongue.gif

It's a parker nitefly. I bought it used though so perhaps it was not extremely well taken care of, as it is a great guitar otherwise. I miss playing it already (amplified, anyway tongue.gif)

Definately not!
Plus it took them about 6 months to release vista drivers after vista was released. Line 6 are hardly on the ball!
