This was another interview over Google Hangouts. There was some humming on the audio which I removed with the noise reduction tool on Audacity. However, I’ve investigated a solution of using a USB 2.0 A-Male to Mini-B Cable from my Zoom H6 to my laptop as a digital rather than my current analogue lead. An audio editor friend suggested I look at the improved Zencastr too.
