I bought a brand new sE-X1 large diaphragm mic. I'm using it with my M-Audio MobilePre to record piano. But the piano barely makes it over the buzzing noise in the recording. Even though I almost pushed it into the soundboard to boost the signal. This clearly isn't amplified background noise if you ask me. But I'm at wits end at to what this could be. Here's a recording: (the problem is pretty clear with headphones) http://skrie.danoli3.com/music/test/Terrible_Static.mp3 I wonder what could cause this distortion. I can't imagine it's the microphone tbh. Could it be a faulty pre-amp?
