Q: I'M EXPERIENCING A HIGH-PITCHED "WHINE" IN MY SOUND.
A: Experiencing some high-pitched “whine” in your sound? We’re here to help put some “why” into the “whine”. Read on to fix it.
“Whine” usually comes from one of two things:
- Interference from your recording space
- A malfunction in your mic’s hardware.
The only way to know for sure is to record in a different environment. Ask yourself 2 questions and assess your environment.
- What is the current recording environment like?
- Are there lots of electronics nearby–modems, gaming consoles, etc?
Now try recording in a completely different space, a “dead” space that’s free of extra electronics. Move the microphone around this space, and listen to any changes or fluctuations in the “whine”. If it dissipates or lessens in any way, then it’s likely that the high-pitched ”whine” is interference from your recording environment. If there is no change in the whine, please visit our Customer Service request form.
