Hiya Converse, I think we need a little more info. Can you hear the buzz from the amp regardless? What mic are you using, are you using a balanced cable? This may be electrical hum at 50 or 60Hz or so, you can cancel it out with a narrow notch filter.

But rather give us more info.

WELCOME! :)

actually, the compression may make such matters worse

A mic is only going to record what it hears. Is the buzz present without micing? Are you using a single-coil guitar? A noise gate might alleviate the problem somewhat.

When I get feedback from an amp I take it with a grain of salt like all other feedback.

If the amp has given me good feedback in the past I give it due consideration. If past feedback was poor I don't give it much thought.

:oops:

Oh.....I thought?......nevermind.


I apologize in advance.

my mic is a mxl 990. i can hear the sound when the amp is turned on. i just want to try and eliminate the sound. i use a fender strat american. its very nice!!1 :lol: but that sound pisses me off. i just want to have a ok recording. i use the mic for my drums just as an overall mic and it works fine. its not a 300 dollar mic but ti gets the job done. i just want o know someething to do if you all have other questions just ask and thanks for all the respones so fast!!! i was so happy to find this fourm!!

This is pretty typical of strats, and teles, and any other single-coil guitar. I think a noisegate is the most common solution.
