I use Ableton, and when using a focusrite interface, without having anything connected to it, I can hear noise if I increase the volume. I don´t know exactly what it is, but I would like to reduce it without the neccesity of using any EQ. I dont know if having noise is normal, or if its being caused by my computer componencts, like power source, GPU, motherboard, etc
The Focusrite interfaces are really good, and I think it’s actually your speakers’ built-in amps. Ive heard the tweeter amps are usually the culprit, and you need to spent ~$1000 to get really good ones. People recommended Neumann and Genelec but not specifically for the noise floor. I have Yamaha HS7 and they do still have a noise floor, but way better than my old BX8s, and I don’t notice it really
you are effectively trying to solve a non-existent problem. You say that the interface is noisy with nothing plugged into it. Consequently, you are measuring the noise of open ended preamps. Either plug some input source into the preamp, or ground the input pins so that you are not measuring the self-noise of free-wheeling opamps. Create a male XLR connector with all pins connected together (3->1, 2->1) and use that to ground the input. Then see what noise you get.
