[LAU] Why would volume fluctuate while recording?

I know this would be like finding a needle in a heystack, but, here goes.
I just recorded an audio track in to ecasound via nama.
Here's the input chain.
Wide diafram condensor mic > Art Tube pack with compressor bipassed >
line 3 of Delta 1010LT > DAW.
There was no processing on the input chanel of the daw.

But, while I was recording an energetic vocal/guitar track, the level
of monitoring output on the mic only dropped about 15-20 db in my
monitoring headphones. The click stayed at normal volume.
Any thoughts at all?
It's pretty hot here in the studio, could the heat be effecting things at all?

CRAZY and mistifyed.
