White Noise when recording acoustic guitar?


Recommended Posts

First of hello! My name is Dave and I got Logic Express 9 for christmas and I jumped right into it. I am still finding it a little hard to navigate but I am eventually learning the tricks. Whenever I try and record my acoustic guitar I get this grainy white noise in the background. I try and add a gate effect but that just stops the noise until I play something. Is there any way that I can get a clean sounding acoustic. I know this is still very vague but any help would be much appreciated.

 

I am using Logic Express 9.1.3

Macbook Pro 13''

Samson CO1U

Yamaha Acoustic

Well I am recording in my room and the only thing that is really making noise would be my computer. Although the Macbook Pro is mostly silent. I have heard that if you place a towel over the computer temporarily it will alleviate some of the noise but I was unaware if this was practical/effective. Are there any effects in the program that will get rid of the unwanted noise or should I invest in some sound proofing equipment?
