20dB of compression? That's far too much. Your interface should be silent. Perhaps something else is causing you grief. a hardware conflict?

Noise is about -80 DB without any effects, and this is even if nothing is plugged in.

My interface has a nice preamp to it, and I boost it 12'o clock. You can hear the mic but it's still pretty quiet so I add compression. I do this because I don't want to boost the preamp until it's easy to clip the signal.

Yeah its pretty old fashioned to boost the signal until its about to clip. I find where it clips then roll it back until where I think its safe. Running mics a little quieter can really clean up the audio too, especially on a drum kit.

sounded like a digital thing to me, I could hear a slight sampling thing going on where it glitched. Get a multi tracker, they run all by them selves!
