|Your problem is in the ground reference between the computer and the
sound board. You MUST electrically isolate the two grounds between the
units. The simplest way is a high quality balancing transformer. Your

direct box 1/4" inputs, and a standard mic cable from the direct box to
a mic input on the mixer. No more hum! If you need stereo, a 1/8" stereo
