hi folks - ran into a strange problem. recently simplified my drum recording setup (down to 2 dynamics snare and kick, 2 condensers on 2 toms and one large condenser for the room, but focused on the ride). i wasn't getting enough hi-hat so i stuck a 57 over there (i like less sizzle from hats than a condenser provides). because of a lack of inputs on my motu ultralite, i used the cable from my vocal mic. i'm getting static when the hats are being played (seems to build up after a few seconds) but don't get any when i plug the strip back into the vocal mic (which is a condenser). i tried a diff mic on the hats, changed the cable - no difference. also turned off the phantom power when going to the 57. the channel strip is mic -> fmr rnp (with the matching fmr compressor inserted) -> dbx eq -> motu -> macbook running ableton live. any ideas? thanks for any help.
