[ddots-l] Re: [Bulk] Re: laptop power problems

Bill,

I made my own from small audio transformers that I got from Radio Shack. I'd 
estimate a few US$. Then cut apart an audio cable and wire the primary 
winding across one set of signal/ground, and the  secondary winding across 
the remaining signal/ground. Wrap with electrical tape to keep from shorting 
out and to give mechanical strength, and you're done. Made a few of these, 
with different plugs and jacks on each end.

Hi, Steve,

What would a good Ground Loop Isolator  cost?

Regards,
Bill

Hi Mark,

My lap top was also built for me purely as a music computer.
The thing about lap tops is, Some of the circuitry is not insulated that
well which can caurse audio noyce.
Tthis happens even on expensive lap tops as they are not quite as inserlated
as say a PC.

It was a high noice I was getting on my lap top, it also would disappear
when using the battery power.
I simply plut the male phonos from the Ground Loop Iserlater into the audio
outs on my Fast Track Pro Sound card then plug the audio cables that go to
my mixer into the female phonos on the Ground loop iserlater.
I'm almost certain a Ground loop icerlater will work.

Try this first before messing with electrics.
