Getting loud static when I connect in jack connection
Bare with me, I have neveer been in a forum or even asked a question because I usually find what I want on this sites lie this. I write music and I have used Adobe Audition since it's inception. I loaded 11.10 on my laptop, installed jack and Ardour and since I do not know a lot about tweaking and these forums are over my head, I was happy everything worked through my Lexicon alpha. Since everything worked, I bought Ubuntu 11.10 pre installed. The computer works perfectly, but I get a loud static anytime I try to record. I did some lightweight tweaking(not much) and I got it to work twice. After it worked, I would close everything and try again to no avail. When I read these forums they go way over my head with suggestions. I need a 'dummy' book. When I am in jack connections, as soon as I connect from the system / ardour I can see this noise in the master bus in Ardour. Again, I have never been in a forum, excuse me if I am doing this wrong.
