so lately i've been trying to record some vocal demos onto my computer. I've got no fancy setup; Sony F-V420 and audacity on pc. Whenever i yell/scream into the mic, i'm getting heavy distortion on playback (this would be obvious). But even when i turn down the sensitivity levels and all that i get the same distortion, just not as loud on playback. even when singing loud this happens not just with the screaming.
now, either my microphone can't handle anything more aggressive than singing or i'm doing something wrong. I just figured at least a $100 sony mic would be able to capture some screams.
by the way, the microphone is plugged directly into the computer (the pink mic input).
