    Solved! (HELP!!) AT2020 bad quality and creating background noise that sounds like white noise

    Yesterday, my AT2020 XLR (which I have had for about 3 years) randomly started to act up by being extremely quiet. To fix this I simply turned up the gain on my audio interface (Behringer U-phoria UM2), although when doing this the microphone sounded very bad and created background noise...

    AT2020USB picking up background noise.

    I recently purchased a AT2020USB microphone as I've started a youtube channel and my blue yeti broke about 3 days later. It is a lot less sensitive than my blue yeti but I'm still having a bit of a problem with background noise. Using a boom arm, a pop filter but it still picks up my keyboard...

    AT2020 XLR won't pick up any sound

    I recently purchased an AT2020 along with a Scarlett 2i2 1st Gen audio interface. I've plugged it all in correctly, but the microphone won't pick up anything.

    My AT2020 isn't working.

    I recently bought an AT2020 condenser microphone, I know that you can't just plug it into the computer so I have also purchased the Scarlett Solo. The Scarlett Solo does have Phantom power and I have it turned on, but the microphone still isn't working, can anyone please help?

    AT2020USB vs. AT2020XLR w/Blue Icicle USB Pre-Amp vs. Blue Yeti USB

    I am a starting youtuber and need a new microphone. I have narrowed it down to a couple choices, but if you have any other suggestions, let me know. I need it to be roughly $150 or less as I don't have a huge budget. I like the AT2020 for the design and noise reduction. I also think the features...
