USB Mic bleeding onto other track Condenser Microphones

USB Mic bleeding onto other track


I'm not a newbie, but also certainly no expert. However, I am new to using a USB mic. I have "proper mic's and proper mic pre's and a proper interface" but so I can travel light and record some vocals for someone whilst at work, I got an ART MOne USB, which seems decent. Not sibilant or bright and onboard 24/48 DA/AD, which many only do 16bit. The level is a little low, but this seems to be normal with USB mic's.

So, I go to record today (Logic pro X) and there is bleed from the other tracks on to the track I am recording with. This is not headphone bleed, as it occurs when no cans are plugged in. It's somehow being routed internally.

Anyway, I solved this by setting the output to use my laptop headphone out rather than the output on the mic. This is a bit of a shame, as there is a convenient mix nob on the mic and also, the cable of my DT770's is short.

Still, thought I'd post this for anyone having the same issue. Let me know if you found a way to to solve it other than this work-around.

All the best
