I opened a song a heard a low hiss. I checked the tracks and some of the tracks were showing low level volume on the VU. See picture. I created new tracks and brought file over to the new track which corrected the problem for a minute and then the hiss came back. Thoughts?

Do you have de mix fx on the master? This van create noise and crosstalk on empty tracks.

Are the inputs on those tracks all set to "None"?  Did you add any plugins to the tracks?

I had the same problem a few hours ago, and I discovered this hiss was triggered by plugins that had an analog option. 

The Waves H Delay plugin has an analog setting, I turned the analog option off, and the hiss was then gone on that track. 

The Waves PuigTec EQ plugin has an 50Hz/60Hz knob. I turned that knob to “off”, hiss gone.

Hope this helps.
