    I own an Audiobox Studio, I mainly record vocals on it. Yesterday I was recording some vocals and everything worked great, but today when I was going to add a couple more takes, when I turned the phantom power on (48V button) it started making all types of weird noises, kind of as if wind was "hitting" the mic. Note: NO there is no wind in my room to make such noise, I have NOT moved my setup at all since 6 months ago. Can anybody help me out with this? Thanks

    What kind of mic are you using? Do you have another mic to check the box? Could be moisture. Old trick is to put the mic by the light ball that is on and let it dry. Some other ideas are unplug everything, maybe switch cables.

    If it's a moisture problem you can also put it in a bag with some of those silicone desiccant bags that you find in some electronics and odd dried food stuffs. I save those specifically for this purpose. Preferably not the food ones.
