Well my first on MacRumors forum but i'm hoping i've come to the right place. A while back I bought a MXL 006 usb mic. I have never been able to use this for one reason or another. My problem right now... I just joined a band and really need to record practices. I've got the mic connected and it is recognized, and I can even record with it. The problem is , there is so much static and noise when I use the mic especially when you speak into it . It lightens up when your rolling but not speaking into it . Once you introduce sound ( voice , guitar etc ) it distorts. I can record with built in mic but of course this is very weak and cant take the high volume of the band. I can back off , get close , it doesnt matter. The mic has a Low,Mid,and Hi switch on it. I've tried them all , still no difference. I am going to be buying an interface with software soon but would like to fix this so I can use it now . I hope someone has some answers for me.
