High Pitched Ringing When Recording (FIXED)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on for a while, I've been so busy!

 

Anyway straight to the point. When I open an audio tract to record some vocals when I click record I get this high pitched ringing. (Just sounds like feedback) And I have no idea why, I tried changing the input and looking online but I couldn't find anything.

 

Again any help would be greatly appreciated :).

It's actually okay now, I just can't record without plugging in headphones.

 

Also related to the issue, I don't have a mic so when I record you can hear the air in the background even if the room is silent, is this because the built in mic is rubbish? Also when the voice hits a certain volume it tends to ring, would a compressor fix this?

 

Thanks.

You hear the background because the gain on the mic is cranked and the room is probably big and not an acoustically treated vocal booth. And using the built-in mic with the iMac speakers will automatically create feedback.

 

If you want better quality you should consider getting an audio interface and a condenser mic.
