Hello, This is my first post in this forum.
First all of all, I would like to inform you all that I am a no "electric guy"..!!!
I have a Home Studio setup and I record my songs. I'v been into recording for the past 3 years, but since then I am unable to solve my problem which is GROUND LOOP in my recordings (a humming or buzzing sound in recorded sound).
I have done tons of researches and found out nothing to resolve this!
THE PROBLEM STAYS AS IT AS!!!!
So, I record my stuff on laptop without the charger connected and transfer files to my PC.
I would like to explain my whole setup so that you can help me better!
I live in a Church Parsonage (kinda old building). There is no proper grounding. To my knowledge, the ground has been connected to the neutral at the main box, so there are no separate grounding wires connected to the grounding pin of the wall socket in outlet. I have even checked by opening the wall socket and found out that the grounding pin was left unconnected (there is no separate grounding wire actually).
I am sick of that humming & buzzing sound. What can I do to avoid that nasty sound without the whole BIG PROCEDURE of grounding? (it's not possible to have proper fitting right now)
Please help me in some way to atleast have only one outlet grounded so that I can start my recordings on my PC. I have heard of connecting a copper wire to a tap, pipe, etc to add some additional grounding, is it true?
PLEASE HELP ME IN SOME WAY OR THE OTHER!!!
Sorry for my English!
