Weird winding on sound recording

  Josquius 22:09 01 Sep 2006

So I was playing aronud on my guitar today with my mic in place in case I stumbled upon anything good.
When I played back my sound recording it sounded somewhat odd. There appears to be a winding sound over the top of it all.
There was definatly nothing like that in the room with me- it seemed rather quiet.

Here is a snippet of my recording with the wind going on:

I've never came across anything like this before in my history of crappy recording...

Background noise? Poor or average quality Mic? Unshielded cables? What you hear and what's actually there are two different things, perhaps try recording directly click here

I don't think anyone would download this for security/viral/trojan reasons, you will have to think of another way.

Ooops...I downloaded it.....NO viruses but it could damage your speakers!

Sorry Josquius,lol

It doesn't sound too bad through my X-Fi sound card when digitally mixed uo to 5.1 sound and using the "Crystaliser" function which is supposed to reconstruct the missing information from compressed music files.

BUT .....through my headphones I see or rather hear what you mean......sounds like something near or in the microphone "rattling" along to the music.

Could the microphone gain be turned up a bit too much?

What recording setup are you using?

Audacity and a USB microphone (I think its a decent quality one, can't remember the numbers though)

I've tried direct recording but...It just doesn't sound good. Its very faint and totally lacking tone.
