Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

Let me know if you have a recommendation, am at a loss! So I have no personal experience with this issue, but until koz returns to this post, consider also that the problem could be in your computer hardware. Consider asking a friend to bring over their computer (or, conversely, take your Solo and ...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

So it seems it's a really bad idea to convert to anything else in a Thunderbolt-3 or USB-C system. They don't use pure 5 volt like early USB. They negotiate the voltage and change the characteristics as needed. That could be where your ratty USB whine sounds were coming from. It's OK now, right? Ko...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

So I suppose the problem is both the beep and the loud hum.... Another update, I bought a new Scarlett Solo just to completely rule out a problem with the device, being that the old one worked fine before and I'm having the same problem with the new one... I tried the varying connections as well (t...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

update - I have been testing this for hours and no luck. A couple hours ago I did a quick test and I didn't hear any beeping. Thinking I was good to go, I finished soundproofing my room, came back to record (without touching or changing any equipment at all) and now the beeping is there. I switched ...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

Hi Koz, Sorry, I didn't realize you'd replied yesterday! This is the Scarlett Solo that I have: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QR6Z1JB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The original cable I used was the USB-C to a regular USB (is that called a USB-A?). That's the one I plugged ...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

You're a Celebrity Unicorn. This usually happens to Windows users on affordable computers and USB microphones. Haha oh my gosh, I really don't want to be a unicorn in this case!! So I figured it was something like this, though I could never have figured that out myself so thank you again for the he...

Re: beeping noise coming up in recording

Hi, Thanks for the quick reply. How do I install mosquitokiller? I downloaded the linked .ny file but my computer doesn't know what to do with it. Hopefully it works for the beeping. Still, I'd like to figure out what's causing it since the beeping is new as of today... I don't think I've done anyth...

beeping noise coming up in recording

Hi there, I've been using the Rode NT1-A for a few weeks now with the scarlett solo usb and everything's been pretty much going okay (previously recorded an audiobook with the Blue Yeti) and am running into a problem. There is a consistent beeping in the background (sample attached) that I only hear...

Re: ACX distorted/lowered quality after publishing

Ah, I see. Right. Assuming I have the settings correct on my spectrogram preview, the original file does go much higher. Does anyone have any thoughts on what I can do to preserve this quality so ACX doesn't lower it too much? I know plenty of other narrators manage to get top quality content out (t...

Re: ACX distorted/lowered quality after publishing

Thanks for the quick reply. You can also listen here without an account, I believe: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W37SX7P/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_WFYYMFGJSRXYERYG3Q6K I was hoping it was just the sample, like you mentioned, but I purchased the book and gave it a listen and it's also muffled/lower qualit...
