Sorry for this long post everyone, but I need your help..again! Well my producer just got a new computer he is gonna use for recording. After some experimenting with recording some guitar tracks, we listened to them and heard some crackling noises coming from the speakers. We are using Cool edit, M-Audio Delta 1010 interface and a Behringer 16 channel mixer. We are using a Behringer 4x12 cabinet (400W) and a Peavey Transtube 100W SS head. The guitar is an Ibanez RG. On the old computer we had no problems with any crackling...now when we recorded with the new computer and played back some tracks we found the crackling. We also played back some older tracks that we recorded using the older computer and the crackling was there. After testing out a few different mics - SM57, Apex mid-sized condensor mic and Apex overhead pencil condensor - we found that only the SM57 did not give us any static, the others did. This creates a problem because we want to use two mics to record guitar, but once we add a 2nd mic we get that blasted crackling! Another weird thing is that when we first start up Cool Edit and record a track we get no problems. When we record another take, we get static, crackles n' pops. This makes me think it's the software.. If you wanna hear what I am talking about, listen to the track on this website - http://www.ontologyband.com/helpMeJebus.mp3 That track was recorded with a different guitar amp, but we get the same results with both guitar set ups. What do you think is causing this problem? What would you recommend doing to fix it?
