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.
