Static noise with or without external mic.

Whats up everyone, I just noticed that I have been getting a static noise while recording with my hero 5 black. I Have 2 different types of external microphones  (Omni & directional).

 

Seems like I’m getting this with the directional shotgun mic, I’m gonna test it out with the Omni mic now to see if I’m getting it as well.

 

 

Could this be a setting issue? The directional mic I’m using is battery powered and on stereo mode.

Re: Static noise with or without external mic.

Are your audio input set to standard for one and powered for the other
