Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
First thing to check is that the phantom power is not turned on. If you are using a condenser mic, then it should. If you are using dynamic mic, then it will crackle and makes weird noises in the manner you describe. Other than that it sounds like you have a failing op amp in your preamp. This sort of repair work is not expensive(with respect to the outcome). I would anticipate $40-60 to fix it. Trouble is you can replace it super cheap at the moment 45% off for $64.95plus $9.95 shipping from zzsounds
So I guess that it may not be worth repairing, and more a replacement item for that money. If you have a mate with electronics experience, you could just replace the opamps at home for $10 worth of parts.
If you think my advice helped you to work out what to do, a FixYa rating would be great. Cheers
