Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Hi Koz and Jademan, My head is really spinning right now. If you don't have a condenser microphone, where did you get the long test from? Ah, okay. I did have a condenser, which I returned to try the dynamic. I wanted to show you the difference between my condenser sample and my dynamic sample becau...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Wow, yes my head is swimming! Trying to soak up all this info. As for noise reduction tool, I do make sure to select a new clip each time I record - I figured the room tone changes a little bit each time anyway so might as well select a few seconds each time to tailor it anyhow. I have not tried DeS...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

You're in the US, right? What's the lighting in your studio? Yes, I'm in the US. Attaching pics of my lights, they're simple ceiling lights (and the fan is always turned off). Please post the condenser microphone "clean," no processing and a lot longer Attached. Let me know your thoughts. It may be...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

So the two clips are where....? Hopefully the clips attached this time. They're lower volume for the same voice, so the natural noise of the preamp or interface (all electronics make some noise) appears that much louder. No matter what you do, your voice has to be boosted enough to pass ACX. The mi...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Hmm, so here is a clip from the other night when my room was treated and all of those sounds you might be mentioning (probably my heater and the air filter in other room) are turned off. There should be no room noises and any hiss in this would be just from the equipment. A while back you helped me ...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Hi Koz, I attached the test. Keeping in mind my room is untreated right now and I usually record at night to avoid cars/ other noises, there may also be some background noise picked up. I didn't edit the test sample at all. I did turn up the gain until the light started flashing green as I spoke, so...

Re: Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Place the Procaster so the end is pointing toward you and use oblique placement (B). Hi koz! Olay, so, I did have the mic pointed towards me like in ex. A, but I didn't have it off to the side like B. I will try that next time. Not sure that will help with the hiss fully but I will definitely make ...

Rode Procaster dynamic mic loud hiss

Hi all, I just purchased a Rode Procaster, hoping the dynamic mic would solve some mouth sounds that my condenser mic was picking up. However, there is a very loud hiss in the background that is still super loud even with noise reduction. Here is my setup: I have a fethead to boost the mic, using ph...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

Ah, unfortunately the Solo is months and months out of the return window :roll:
But, that is an excellent suggestion and it just may be worth doing that if I end up with another mic I don't like or if it has the same issue.
Thanks for the suggestion!

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

Well, that would make sense. Thanks so much for helping me out on this journey. My return window is just closing so I think I'll return it for now and try a different mic, which knowing my luck will come with a whole new set of problems... Worst case I can return that and purchase the Rode NT1 again...
