Rode VideoMic Pro giving buzzing noise when recording

1 year 5 months ago #638227 by ThatNikonGuy
I just bought one of these mics after reading a number of good reviews on it.  I have it set up and all my audio has a slight buzzing noise through out.  I have checked all the wires, all good.  Google wasn't much help, so before I get to frustrated this evening, I'll ask you all. 

Any clue on what might be causing this white noise?

These are good mics, did you check your gains to make sure this isn't cranked up to high? Make sure both ends of the connectors are fully seated and while at it, check the connecting wire for unusual cracks or bends.  

Other than that, I can't think of anything.

It definitely sounds like you have a connection issue. I don’t suppose you have a spare wire are you test?

Check to make sure your wifi is turned off. That was what was causing issues with mine.

I also noticed that it picks up ultrasonic interference sometimes.

You might just have a bad mic too, these things don't get flying colored reviews all the time:  www.amazon.com/Rode-Microphones-VideoMic...s#reviews-filter-bar

So, what did you find out?  Wire or defective mic?
