    I'm getting an unbearable hum when I connect my USB. I hadn't hooked it up in a couple of months and when I went to edit my presets a few weeks back I started having this problem. I couldn't get any sound at all with the stock cable so I bought a new one and I'm still getting a hum although now I can kind of drown it out if I turn the volume up loud enough. Would still like to figure out what's up.

    Sounds like you have a ground loop.

    I don't know about a ground loop but I've tried different USB ports and get the same thing. Even tried sticking it in my PS4 just to see and it still does it.
