Okay so I've been having this issue for a few months now. Kinda getting to the point of my audio issue is something to do with my soundcard / hardware inside my PC but first, I should explain what I am hearing and give some views on what the issue is.
Firstly. Only people with studio based headsets can hear this. People with earbuds wouldn't be able to hear the issue but its like a Crystallizing popping noise that only occurs before I speak. Like a *Pop* *Click* before I say a word.
https://youtu.be/V2jGsz6GGMI?t=64 is a example of the noise (It occurs when I say "Testing") I have tried the following:
Replaced USB Cables,
Replaced XLR Cables.
Changed from Focusrite 2i4 USB Interface to a Line 6 tone port UX2 Interface. The issue is still there.
Tried 3.0 USB Ports (UX2 didn't work)
So I tried different ports.
I have tried different microphones.
(AT2035 which is 2 years old and the AT2020 which is around 5 months old)
and now thinking it might be hardware / soundcard issue but I can't decide if its cause my PC is slightly outdated or it might be something else.
