No idea, but it's got a horrible ground layout, I'd avoid.

If you look at the layout, power grounds are not separated from signal grounds, there is no rail decoupling, and all the grounds go round in a big circle, giving multiple ways for currents to flow - the perfect definition of "ground loop".

ah ok thank you for your generous reply

Do you have any idea how to fix it or do i have to add some resistor and caps between supply ground and input/signal ground?

Research "star grounding". There's a couple of good threads on here. As for the ICs, I'd add a 10uF to ground for each rail where you enter the PCB, and 0.1uF at each chip, that should give you a good start. You can leave the 0.1uF across the rails, it'll do no harm. Exact values really need to be sorted with a 'scope, checking for ringing and such like, but I suggest will be a decent start.

To fix it would mean redesigning the board. Adding extra components could make things worse. However, a limiter is supposed to add distortion so a little extra hum and noise won't do much harm.
