My SQ-80 used to pick up radio frequencies when turning off; I'd hit the power switch and I'd get a burst of Chinese programming. Now, when the SQ-80 is plugged into my MOTU Ultralite interface - with a balanced cable - I get christian programming constantly. The only exception is when I hit record to track a sequence - then it's silent. I tried a shorter length of cable, and it became worse. Any ideas?

If you are connecting to a laptop, try running it off batteries (unplug the A/C cable from the wall outlet. If you are using a desk PC, make sure that the computer and SQ-80 are plugged into the same wall outlet. If neither of these works, get one of these:



Ebtech HumX

I keep one of these and also the Ebetch Hum Eliminator in my gig bag and they have both saved the day (or night as the case may be) many, many times.
