What could be causing this issue?
I’ve tried on another PC and same result.
As far as I know, I haven’t touched any audacity setting.
I recently have taken my microphone outdoors for some podcasting, so could the exposure to outdoors have affected the equipment?
Can you try a fresh USB cable? If that’s it, that’s the digital signals in the USB cable leaking into the battery system which runs the super sensitive sound element inside the microphone. They are supposed to ignore each other, but there are computer and microphone combinations that drive each other crazy.
I tried a filter we designed to get rid of that USB interference. Mosquito Killer. I set it to 8 mosquitoes.

That’s the Nyquist plugin. Even though it seems to work OK, it really is slicing out some musical tones from the show and you really should find out what’s causing it.
Can you try another computer? It’s pretty rare to have two of them in a row scream like that.
