Hmm, I may have read your post wrong. Are you saying that when you plug
the line from the studio into another amp (or something) you don't get the
hum? If so, it might be a grounding issue in the sound card. If you have a
mixer lying around, plug the line from the studio into it and then run the
output from the mixer to the sound card.

by the way, my friend dennis's friend kelly is a dj there i think. heh.
