Maybe that will help, maybe not. I could be that the
cable is just *mechanically* picking up some vibration
from the table, which is then transferred to the Zoom's
body and hence to the mics. Do you have a PC or any other
electric equipment on the table (for example a transformer
of a low-voltage table light) ?



Io lo dico sempre: l'Italia è troppo stretta e lunga.
