    Q. What is the whining noise coming from my soundcard?

    I noticed a quiet high-pitched whine coming from my Tannoy Reveal Active monitors, which are plugged into my Spirit Folio F14 mixer. Eventually I found that the whine stops when I press the button on my Edirol DA2496 soundcard to select an external word clock. I would rather get to the source of the problem and sort it out. Can you help?

    Q. How can I get rid of clicks and pops from my soundcard?

    I've recently upgraded to an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard, and I'm having some problems. Firstly, I cannot change the level of the line input. So if the CD player outputs audio at too high a volume, I get clipping and distortion, no matter where I set the sliders in the Delta control panel applet...

    Q. How can I achieve zero latency from my software synths?

    I have an Echo Darla20 soundcard and I'm concerned about the possibility of achieving zero latency when I'm using soft synths like those in Reason. Can you give me any advice?
