Maybe this would also explain why I get a slight/medium buzz in my Microphone too. All of my recording equipment is brand new, same with the cables to it all so there shouldn't be any buzz at all. When I record a piece and play it back with the vocals cranked up a bit, the 'dead air' isn't just 'dead air', I get a buzz too. Another possibility though, is my speakers. When I have all of my recording equipment shut off, and I turn the speakers all the way up with nothing playing I get a lot of air, which I don't know is normal or not. And I get it even louder when I turn up the bar under my sound card manager titled 'MICROPHONE', which isn't the actual Microphones sound level, it's just how loud I hear myself in the headphones. Hmm.

Well your best bet if you really want to get it solved is to hire a licensed electrician. Or at least consult one and see what he says. I know sometimes this is easier said than done. I work at a Petroleum plant so they are easy to come by and ask a few questions but even if you know some one who knows one, just see what they say.

It's about 3 years old, maybe 3 1/2. I guess I'll get in contact with an electrician and have them figure it out.
