I recently have bought a new V8 Sound Card. I connected it to my electric violin and to the laptop, also connect my headphones to the sound card. However, there is a buzzing sound in my headphones whenever I play the violin.
I am not sure what could be the issue, my assumption is that the laptop does not meet the requirements for the sound card.
I tried different pairs of headphones, it wasn't better.

I am not too knowledgeable about this type of technology so I apologize if I was unclear of my problem.
Thank you in advance!

Make and model information for:

Laptop

Headphones (both pairs that you tried)

Electric Violin

My thought is that there is a mismatch in the audio connection cables being used.

Connections are designated as TR, TRS, TRRS. (Tip, Ring, Sleeve).
