    hey, can anyone help me out with my mic? i use the samson c01u usb and everytime i record in adobe audition 1.5 i get this loud visible noise. before i didnt have this problem but up until yesterday it happened. oh yeah, i tried using this mic on my sister's labtop and the noise wasnt there but when i tried recording with it using my pc, the noise came up again. so i think somethings up with my comp but the prob is i dunno what is up.

    here are some clips of the noise i'm talking about:

    For some reason the links are not working for me but I have a hunch. You probably use a CRT monitor and have the mic right in front of it, right? What you are getting is RF interference, move the mic away or shut the CRT off during recording. LCD displays, like on a laptop don't do this.
