To give y'all a better idea, I've got a neighbor that sucks in all the stereotypical ways, constantly playing loud music, raucous late night gatherings, etc. What is most annoying, is the music, or more specifically, the constant thumping bass that manages to travel through the walls. Its loud enough to hear with the naked ear, but not loud enough to pick up on a mic and then play back in a recording.
Shure sm7b -> XLR cable -> cloudlifter CL-1 -> XLR cable -> Scarlett 8i6 (Phantom Power On - Gain = 7) -> USB cable -> laptop.
I have both the stock pop filter on the mic itself as well as a pop filter attached to the boom stand.
I'm getting some strange wooshing feedback every time there is a new word in the verse, the best way I can describe it is that high frequency shifting noise you get when tuning a radio between stations.
Context- I'm trying to make my recordings as loud as possible without abusing master compression. I know that a good arrangement can make a song appear louder. So I'm trying to make sure that the music is properly balanced in the frequency spectrum in attempts to make the music appear "louder."
In other words:
The issue I am having is that my microphone setup is outputting a squealing noise. I can describe it as a high pitched, frequency sound, that changes pitch constantly, kind of as if you were to wave both of your hands frantically in front of a Theremin. I can hear the sound when recording using adobe audition or other audio recording software, as well as when using "Ventrilo", or Skype. The pitch or prevalence of the issue seems to be random, but at times it seems to be related to how hard the computer is working on a task.
