    Hi! I recently upgraded from an Asus sabertooth 990fx with an amd bulldozer quadcore, to a Gigabyte z170 gaming 3 with an i7-6700k.

    I make youtube videos and stream on twitch, and Whenever I go to record voice overs with audacity I get a loud pop at the beginning of the recording.

    My current setup is BM-800 condenser mic ->xlr -> innogear phantom power unit -> xlr to 3.5mm jack -> mic in port on back panel of the Z170.

    I have updated my realtek drivers, and not really sure where to look to solve this issue.

    My current work around is to leave a 5 second gap before the recording and cut it out, but then the waveforms are difficult to see, and distortion becomes more apparant.

    Any suggestions would be apreciated, and I put it in this thread because I do believe it either is due to the motherboard itself or the software changes it brought.

    Thanks!

    Are you using a pop filter first of all?

    As we spoke on Team Speak, first things first, I checked specs and my bad it actually has RealTek unlike Gaming 7 has Creative Quad Chip.
    Nevertheless, try updating all drivers from Manufactures Website:

    You could also install Creative SB X-Fi driver
    As far as I remember it has a utility tool that will help to configure your onboard sound card

    I do have a pop filter, but this isnt a p-losive, this is at the beginning of a recording, before i start speaking.

    So apparently it was due to the advanced noise features in windows recording devices, If they are turned off, then the pop is apparent, if they are turned on, then there is no pop!
