@Gadget69, I am not sure what the "Recovery Method" is, however, I did run the latest update that was presented to me when I registered the mixer. That update is firmware 7786. I ran it from presonus site.... if that answers your question...
I changed all of my cables and I seem to not have the noise when I play an instrument live through it. However; once its connected to my PC (via firewire S800) I hear the noise... even through the headphones. My PC specs are:
Windows 10 - 64 Bit
Quad Core - AMD A10 - 7800 Radeon R7
3.5 ghz speed
I'm playing back through the firewire (firestudio). The noise is loud and sound like heavy static
