When I record the sound cracles and the sound is distorted when viewing the recording

Hi Robert,

Are you recording using your laptop's built in microphone? I'm not going to lie to you - the majority of the time these microphones aren't the best ot record with.

You can try turning down the gain on the microphone in your sound settings - or try picking up an external microphone.

For general clean up on your computer, I recommend checking out the following article:

Hope this helps!

Samson G-Track recording volume issue

Try using a computer with a dedicated sound card, not an onboard sound chip. A condenser mike can't provide very much power on its own, and requires power from the attached receiver/amplifier.

Microphone has undelying static and hiss

Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. Best to use headphones when recording.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

1) if you are using the PC sound card to record this is where your hiss is coming from. you need to get a recording card that has low noise or some other recording USB input device to get CD quality recordings


2) if you have to use your PC sound card check your PC volume level for line in, don't let it get high or it will distort. you will have to experiment with the MD4 levels and PC sound card level to find a good middle ground with low hiss and no distortion
and a singer that sings away from the mic to reduce distortion.

hope this helps
thanks for your rating

Crackling occurs after 1 minute of video&audio

Hi that all sounds to me to be a fairly classic "Electret" Mic problem. I have seen .. lol.. or rather, heard it, a few times B4.. the "Frying" sound you hear is the faulty electronics in the Electret microphone.. I would try replacing the Mic, if you can get one the same size, it shouldn't be too hard to Open the camera up, unsolder the old Mic, & replace it. There are really only a few standard Electret Mic inserts... As an aside, sometimes it can simply be a bad solder joints to the wires on the actual mic itself, ya may wanna try good reflow/resolder first B4 ya replace.. This sometimes is all it requires...
