I understand that this may be kind of a random question, but I really do need help. I haven't been able to record like I have been wanting to thanks to (what I think) the Phantom Power being too strong. What I mean is that every time I try to record at all on my microphone, it's always fuzzy and hissy, and only picks up a little bit of my muffled voice, and this is with the knob turned all the way up. The odd thing is, however, is when I turn off the Phantom Power, there are 15-30 seconds of it sounding fantastic and exactly what I want it to. After that 15-30 seconds, it, of course, fades out into nothingness. I don't really understand what this is and why it's happening, but my theory is that the Phantom Power sort of over-rides the necessary power for it to sound good, and because of that, all i'm getting is a bunch of static and muffled recording. Am I missing something? I've looked everywhere, and I haven't found any luck. And if it's not the Phantom Power being too strong and I am missing something in that regard, don't be afraid to correct me. I want to know all the ins and outs of home recording so that I am able to record the music I want to record hassle-free. Anyways, any help would be greatly be appreciated. Thank you so much.
