Hey, ive been recording off of my computer for quite some time onto Sonar and i have one huge problem thought you might be able to assist with. There is horrible buzzing from the audio cables that i cannot get rid of. it tends to overpower the track destroying any enjoyment. I have all remaining electrical power off in my room and even my monitor and speakers are off (i use headphones to record). plz help

What output from your amp are you running into the sound card?

The speaker output only gives me left channel so its useless to me. I use the headphone out to get stereo sound.

sad to say, but you may have damamged the soundcard by plugging the speaker output into the card. The Speaker out drives power through it, which is how it powers the speakers, byplugging it into the soundcard you are directing all that power from the amp into the soundcard.
