Hi, this is my first time on here, so bear with me.
I have been recording voice overs only using the latest version of Audacity, 220.127.116.11. I am using a Blue Nessie Snowball mic on a Lenovo ThinkPad. I have recorded dozens of hours with no problems until yesterday. I now get a noise that sounds like some interference. I have tried all of the suggestions I could find.
I have switched recording from stereo to mono. I have turned off all other apps and have no web browser running, I have disabled the recording monitor, I have disabled my computer’s internal mic, I have placed the Snowball various distances from the computer…
It does not happen all of the time, and the randomness of it is what is messing me up. The noise only appears during playback, not while recording. It can appear immediately or in the middle of a track. I’ve even had it appear when I just record “dead air”.
I have also tried adjusting the mic input volume, but it still appears on lower levels.
I have tried the mic on a different computer and had no issue, but as I said the event happens at such random times I can’t really perform a “controlled” experiment.
Any tips or advice or suggestions are appreciated!
