So I’m not sure if this is the best place for it, but since this is the program I used to record the sound-file, I figured you all would know a bit about audio interference. If it’s against the rules or anything, feel free to delete/lock if need be, but I’m at the point where anyone who can even point me in the right direction has earned a reward. I looked, and I can’t find any kind of definitive rule on it.
Here’s the noise: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0WQzkt4lPSu
Here’s what I know about it:
-I first heard it when I moved into my apartment about a year and a half ago, on two devices: An electric piano with built in speakers (I could hear the noise through the speakers when I didn’t have headphones plugged in, and I could hear the sound through headphones when I did have them plugged in.
-I also heard it through a couple crappy wal-mart computer speakers I had.
-The sound went away when I bought a stage piano. I cannot hear it on my stage piano.
-It’s audible even with all the power out in my apartment, via a small handheld radio through the AM station. It’s not very loud though.
-It only happens in my room: When I moved my piano out into my living room, I didn’t hear it.
-When I plugged my piano/computer in via extension cord, it still made the sound.
-I recently picked up a CAD-u37 Microphone. It’s connected to my computer via USB cord.
-When I lift, move, cover, come closer, or get further away from the microphone, the noise can get louder or quieter or change signals a bit with only a little bit of rhyme or reason.
-The same thing happens when I move the mic cord around, but not the mic itself.
-(Here’s the important bit) It’s driving me crazy.
-The apartments I live in have a cell tower antenna built on the roof. I’ve tried calling everyone I can, but they all claim there’s absolutely no way it’s their problem, since their sounds are so far above that spectrum.
I’m offering a $10 reward for anyone who can pinpoint me to exactly what the hell it is, and another 10 if someone can tell me a way to make it stop.
