I got the buzzing noise for the first time tonight. Same as Bruce above, the buzzing coincides exactly with the disk access light. This was a practice and we were using only the main LR mix – no monitor mixes. Buzzing was heard on both L and R speakers.

Drive used was a WD My Book with external power source, which has been used before with no issues. One difference tonight is that we used two monitor wedges (JBL EON 15s) with cheapo XLR cables as our main LR mix speakers rather than our normal FOH speakers with quality cables.

I was ready to box the mixer up for warranty service. Glad I checked here. If I had to guess based on the above I might say better shielding on the XLR cables could be the answer.

Anyone have any other thoughts?

Thanks
Billy
