[linux-audio-user] Getting audio noise through midi cable

I have my keyboard midi ports connected to my computer through the
game port on my motherboard sound card. It works fine, except I'm
hearing some noise through the audio output on my keyboard when the
midi cable is plugged into my computer. Whenever my computer is on
(whether or not the keyboard is), I hear a buzz, and it gets louder
whenever the hard disk is in use. Is there anything I can do to
correct this? Is it because I have a cheap sound card? I've thought
about getting a somewhat better soundcard, possibly an SB Live!, or a
USB midi interface instead of my gameport midi interface. Any
