I use Mixcraft 3.1 to record my stuff. This song im posting on my profile is rough, I just really got the melody and everything, but I get this horrid high pitched buzz type noise. Just listen to the first 2 seconds of the song. I have no idea what it is, I upgraded my mic, it still isn't great but it's better.

PS comments on the song so far would be wonderful, it's called Everfree as of now.

check the sound gate
it has nothing to do with the mic
unless u are using like a plug in and dropped it alot?
and u should record the vocals seperatly
i can barely hear them
This seems like a decent mic to me. It's basically brand new. When I record the song in it's entirety I do record it seperately, I still need a bridge for this one. But that still has that horrid noise in it. What is the sound gate exactly? Like the amount of noise that's let in? I think it may be a little ways up, but not all the way.

Do you have a ground switch on your recording hardware? I have an EMU-0404 USB and it has one on the bottom, if you have a ground loop (or whatever it's called) just flip the switch and it takes out the hum. I'm not sure if that's what you have but it's worth a shot.
hey I left a comment for your song "stars"

I really like it. You can see my full comment on your page

keep up the good work man!
Thanks for the comments. I may try a different recording program before I go buy another mic. What's a good free program besides Audacity, I already have it. Are there any others?
