I have this list of gear that I am trying to get playing nice together:
- Windows computer
- Macbook pro
- Presonus 2i2
Currently I am mixing the audio outputs by having my Windows pc connected to my Scarlett 18i20 via USB with the 2i2 connected to the mac with the outputs going to the Scarlett's inputs.
I wish to change this setup so that the Mac is the computer that is connected to the Scarlett however no matter what I try doing to get the PC sound into the mixer there is always a large amount of feedback on the channels coming from the computer.
The only way I can remedy this is to have the PC connected to the Scarlett and have the Mac's inputs routed.
Can anyone give me some idea as to why the Windows PC is so noisy? This is not the first computer I have had with this problem (recently rebuilt the computer, new motherboard, cpu the works)
I have tried connecting the Windows PC in various ways (line output directly to the 18i20 with 3.5m adapter to dual TRS)
If it helps anyone I may create a diagram to show how these computers are connected. It's really driving me insane.
