I'm part of a church and we are looking to record sermons using a laptop and our sound desk. Everything works fine until we connect the laptop to mains power. Searching on Google I found this post ...
I got a new compressor, and everytime I plug my microphone into it, there's a lot of static. It doesn't show up in the recorded audio, but I would love to get rid of it.
What is "clipping" distortion? What causes it, and how to avoid it when recording audio? p.s. please add tags "distortion" and "clipping".
