Hey guys, thanks for reading. I have a Beta 52A kick drum mic and a Delta 1010LT interface on my computer. When I keep the Beta out of the kick hole, it sounds decent and there's no clipping. But when I put it 2" into the kick hole, this is what happens: http://www.silveradohome.com/Clipping.jpg http://www.silveradohome.com/Clipping.wav So the output isn't clipping, it just appears as if I'm actually overloading this mic by placing it in the correct position. But this mic really shouldn't be overloaded that easily, should it? I'm hitting the kick drum pretty softly, too. Does this look like overload or am I missing some padding somehow? Come to think of it - last week I put an SM57 on my Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier and it had a similar overload problem. That should be a practical application too, I can't figure out why I'm getting this issue! Thanks in advance for any help.
