I’m playing around with recording through my Behringer XR18 mixer into Cubasis on my iPad.
I’ve noticed that when the BeatBuddy begins to play, the recording features a lot of noise. I don’t get any of that with my Yamaha CP4 and YC61 stage keyboards, my Guild acoustic/electric, Sennheiser and Shure mics, or my Access Virus TI2 synth.
The CP4 is on balanced XLR’s. The Virus is on balanced TRS’s. However, the YC61 is on unbalanced TS cables, just like the BeatBuddy, albeit much longer.
Just for the heck of it, I ran the BeatBuddy through a stereo direct box, resetting the gain staging appropriately. Noise gone!
The cable run from my BeatBuddy to my mixer is a whopping one foot! I’m using quality Pro Co TS-TS patch cables. Those cables are still in the loop with the direct box.
Anyone else experience lots of noise from BeatBuddy? Do you use a direct box for it when going into a mixer?
