Recording Problems: Hiss Noise

    If it is indeed a "hiss" and not simple room noise, then the two places to look are the microphones or the pre amps on you gear, with the pre amps being a strong favourite for the culprit. Even pretty good pre amps introduce noise (i.e. "hiss") if you have to turn up the gain anywhere near the highest level.

    From my own experience, I'd go for the cables first. It is usually there where a hiss is filtered most of the time. After acoustically isolating the room, I make the recording with direct monitoring by software (Studio One or Pro Tools), making use of a noise gate during the whole recording. In this way, you can also add color to the sound through a light EQ and additional processes, including sound manglers.
