I do not know if the particular sound you are hearing is the symptom that I am talking about... For $15 it would be worth it to me to try it and see. When I read the tech article I did not think mine fit, but I guess it did.

As for the tech article it is in the service providers area only. ie even if I did link it it would not be readable unless you had access to service provider support. Sorry:( That is why I posted it here was so that all of you would at least be aware.

BTW I was interested in finding a better sound card (one that supports surround sound) is there such a critter for the mac. Preferably PCI and not with digital sound out, I just want to plug in my logitech z-560 system.

Motu's are not up to date on the OsX support. The 828 driver for osX is not out yet afaik. I have a delta 1010 (Also running Logic ...blah blah...)and it's rock solid for OsX. Audiowerk 2/8 would be what you're looking for in terms of surround sound compatibility/mixdown, and the drivers are on the way -- hey it's made by the newly acquired by Apple, Emagic Gmbh (o wait -- that might not be there any more).

Ando for the original question about the lowlevel hum in the Mackie -- might be your cables -- don't forget unless you're digital you are facing the ground/floor noise issue. Take your shoes off, stand barefeet on the ground and start touching the different connection points in the signal path -- from the out jack on the g4 to the actual ring on the in-jack on the mackie. Hehh what you described sound exaqctly like a ground loop -- you have to isolate it yourself, man, sorry. Also touch the different parts on the console that are adjacent to the g4 fader/knobs

Hoep this helps....
