Hi everyone, just thought I’d open up a Topic for those of us who are having trouble with a ground noise when using Neural DSP’s plugins.
I personally get noise on all 3 plugins I’ve tried (Plini, Nolly, Abasi). I currently own the first to and I’ll probably get Abasi in the next few days. I live in Uruguay so high quality valve amps are not only expensive but rare here. Plus I don’t live somewhere I can use one, at least not without an attenuator. That’s why up to a few months ago I was using a couple of pedals paired up with a Mooer pre-amp, straight to interface.
I currently use Neural DSP’s Plugins as my only source of guitar tone running through M-Audio BX5 monitors and it sounds way better than before for sure. Only problem is I can’t seem to get rid of this noise hissing in the background every time I play. I have tried so many things to see where the problem is. Also sometimes I’m able to play without it, but randomly, and then it’s back. I’m assuming that’s probably ground noise. I used different guitars, including ones recently shielded and with brand new electronics. I just recently purchased a Scarlet 2i2 which is what I’m using. It would make sense that I mention I’ve also tried changing the interface from my PC to my Mac Book Pro where I also have the Archetype plugins. Noise was still there, though quite different sounding. On PC it’s like a hiss, on Mac it’s more like the noise the input jack makes in contact with the 1/4 cable.
Anyway, hopefully if some of you have the same problem we can use this to come up with possible solutions.
