I have a new Xenyx 802 mixer and am trying to set it up to mix audio for some video projects (for input into my cannon camera).
I'm having trouble getting a clean sound however and even when there are no inputs into the mixer, my headphones are registering static.
The static happens regardless of whether the mixer is getting power directly from the wall socket or an extension chord.
The static increases whenever any of the input levels or gains are increased, even when no inputs are attached.
I'm new to this and don't know if this is the mixer, my headphones, my adapter, nearby EM interference, or what?
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
