Jan 22 '15 at 17:30 comment added Guney Ozsan @Tetsujin Thanks. I got used to solve this problem with trial and error everytime. Nice to see a good explanation on the subject specialized for audio. The suggestion to run on battery power while doing connections with is worthless. I always hated risking expensive equipment but generally no choice left on studio or stage.
Jan 22 '15 at 16:40 comment added Tetsujin yeah, it's not actually 'ground loop' it's 'leakage' of induced current across the transformer coils - this gives a not too technical overview - epanorama.net/newepa/2012/04/02/…
Jan 22 '15 at 16:11 comment added Guney Ozsan Also, I always have to look for box tapes whenever I move my keyboard and laptop to a new place because of crappy electrical schemes.
Jan 22 '15 at 16:07 comment added Guney Ozsan For example I have a Focusrite Scarlett USB audio device and in some locations I can't touch my laptop comfortably because of the electric accumulating on the cover. At those places I need to manually ground my laptop plug to a water pipe or something then the problem fixes. Disconnecting USB also removes the current but there is no more an audio device of course.
Jan 22 '15 at 11:43 comment added Tetsujin I doubt either a laptop or USB DAC would be grounded. It's very rare the earth pin actually goes anywhere on a double-insulated device, often they're not even metal. [UK plug]
