    That sounds like classic ground hum, I'd agree separate outlets are best (assuming they're on different circuits) or else a Di between fx and computer with a ground lift. Not sure why the OPs noise was 5khz though? That sounds like the noise i get when my single coils get too near my laptop. Yes, I have recorded it with a view to making a piece out of it. 21st century feedback i guess.

      21 century feedback sounds like it would be a good compilation

          feedback through a rotary speaker simulator and then through some envelop filters sounds fun!

            The guy I'm performing with in a few weeks has an album of "digital feedback" - no source material, just a lot of effect plugins being fed back into themselves. https://joelmcmordie.bandcamp.com/al...gital-feedback

            Completely off topic to the original post though, but it was from 4 years ago so I guess it's been fixed by now?
            I find energy saving light bulbs to be the most common source of buzz in my guitar, so generally I end up recording in the dark/by monitor light

              ground loops are the worst! interesting link. i have a fuzz pedal death by audio "sound wave breakdown" that goes APE SH#@! when not strumming or picking strings, run that through my death by audio "total sonic annihilation" along with a delay on the verge of self oscillation and we got a party going on!

                As IAINX iainx notes, the OP was from 4 years ago. Can't imagine a "...guitar going straight into the instrument pre-amp". Seems standard procedure is using an interface of some sort. I use a Steinberg UR-22: reasonable price, a lot of functionality, dead simple.
                But I noticed on Stupid Deal Of The Day this inexpensive interface (which I've never seen before) from Fender.
