  • Need help with noise in Home Studio setup please

     Hello, I'm setting up a home studio. I have two laptop's: Sony VAIO and HP. The Sony is the newest, but when I try to record generates a lot of hiss. I bought an Interface Scarlett 2i4 and and Microphone TLM 103. All cables are high quality. The problem is, when I record in both computers, there are noise (more than normal).
    I would like to know what is generating the noise. I'm really interested in work with the Sony one, but I was reading about that recording noise is a general problem as result of its thin size. Is there any way to avoid it?

    I record in Sony Vegas, Sound Forge band Adobe Audition.
    Additionally, I'm going to connect an Avalon VT  737 SP and a couple of studio monitor.

    May be the interface is the problem, and I should buy another, but before go to return it to the store I would like to know what could be a good solution to fix this problem please?

      Actually, I updated the drivers and that seems to work but thanks for the links!

      Keeping your audio interface drivers up to date is always a good idea, and usually a good first step whenever you're having any issues.

      Glad to hear you got it all figured out and fixed the noise issue.

    When you're recording, try disabling the wireless card and running the laptop on battery power.
