    My microphone has stopped recording well (on Garageband for instance) and my friends on Skype say they can't hear me very well (sometimes they can't hear me at all)

    I have unchecked the "ambient noise reduction" box under preferences, but now, even though my mic actually picks up more of my voice now, there is a lot of ambient noise whenever I record something.

    How do I get rid of the noise pollution?

    It seems I can either have a clear but REALLY quiet sound or an ok- sound with a lot of noise pollution. :confused:

    HELP! Thanks! :)
