Question about SE Electronics SE2200A Professional Microphone
Hi, I've been using a SE electronics 2200A condenser over the last year and have encountered a recurring problem when recording. Basically when recording vocals the mic will work fine for 1 - 5 hours and then a "wind" noise starts creeping in underneath the vocals, once it starts it eventually becomes so strong that we cannot record. I know "wind" isn't very descriptive but it's a horrible background noise that becomes so audible it ruins the recording. We have tried using over a dozen different working XLR-XLR mic leads and we're recording into a 'MOTU 828' sound card (even tried a DIGI 002 and encountered the same problem) which means it isn't a problem with the sound cards preamp. It's only with this microphone that we have this issue, usually by not using it for a few days it would give us a couple more days of recording. But now it's got to the point where within 2 minutes of being plugged in it makes this loud horrible "windy" background noise. Any ideas what this is? Or how it can be resolved? Any help would be much appreciated!
Its very descriptive and is quite a common problem with less expensive condenser mics. It's due to dirt or contamination on the capsule insulator or front end circuitry of the electronics. SE should be able to fix it for not much money.
