I've recently bought a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 to start recording songs with a friend. I was getting a lot of electrical buzz from the rest of my computer when going from bass to interface via a jack cable, so I swapped to an XLR cable out of the back of my amp head. Now it all sounds really muffed and seems to have reverb on it. When I'm actually playing it sounds fine, bright and clear, but it's not translated to the actual recording. Does anyone know what could be happening here? Or anyway to fix it?
Also could anyone give me some advice on shielding the interface so it doesn't get the electrical interference. Thanks guys!!
