I've been podcasting for several years and try to do voice=over work. I have always experienced poor audio recordings from my mic/system.

Here is the setup:
Heil PR 40 mic going thru either a Symetrix 528e voice processor or a Golden Gate Pre 73 pre amp.

Signal then goes out to an Allen & Heath 24 channel mixer then via USB to my computer. I'm running Soundtrack Pro recording software on a 24" iMac.

You would think that the recorded audio would be pretty good with this setup. It isn't. It's noisy and in the broadcast sense, unusable. I've been trying to isolate the problem for over a year now with no luck.

If anyone would like to hear a sample file and give a professional opinion, I would be more than happy to send.

I'd be happy to give it a listen if you want to post a sample.

What is your A&H mixer model BTW? It would obviously be preferable to have a mic pre that could go directly out into STP to keep the signal path as clean as possible.
