I'm using a PPC G5 Mac tower (OSX 10.5.5) for GB processing, and it seems that when I use the Visual EQ on a digital audio track it adds some hiss.

My questions are:
a) Has anyone else noticed this?
b) Is this a PPC-only artifact?

I don't have an Intel Mac to try, but if it "fixes" it, I may have to get one. Right now, the results are unacceptable.

Dual 2GHz PPC / 400GB / 8GB, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    When you open the visual EQ, what is the EQ curve? Is it flat or is the curve going up on the right, increasing the volume of higher frequencies? If so, since that's where the hiss frequencies are, it could be that the EQ is working correctly, and whatever setting it's on is just EQ'ing up the hiss.
