Hi Guys, sorry for the newb question but I am really losing it here. Ready to throw it all out and start over.
My setup: Rode Procaster > Yamaha USB mixer > Windows 7 > Audacity
The problem: It all sounds great EXCEPT you can hear a slight background hiss when I am speaking and for maybe a half-sec after. During pauses it’s dead silent.
It sounds weird to hear the shhh sound with every sentence and then silence. I usually normalize and do noise reduction but the hiss/dying hiss at end of a word is still there.
Any help please. I am really losing it.
Fair warning, if you find the Windows tools and turn them all off, you may (probably) have performance tracks where instead of pulsing, the noise never goes away. Post back if you have that. Do Not dive reflexively for Noise Reduction.
We can help you manage that, but getting rid of the noise pulsing is the first job. There’s just nothing like fighting the computer during a performance.
