    I have an odd hum problem in my noise and jamming setup when I have all the pedals turned off I get like a 60 cycle hum, when I turn a pedal on it stops this is every pedal except those in a blendable loop but the hum stops when the loop is engaged so it isn't specific to any pedal on the board.

    Ideas help etc
  2. EHX Hum Debugger, you could always use another pedal ;)

    What is powering that setup? If it's a daisy chain, then disconnect the pedals from the power and add them back one by one.

    Ground loop. They're tricky bastards to hunt down, but hunting them down is the only real solution.
  5. I would definitely encourage you to fix the cause rather than throw a (hum-debugging) blanket over it to cover it up!

    If possible, power everything on batteries and see if it still does the same thing.
