Audio noise even when using camcorder mic input with no mic


New Member
I wonder if any other obs'ers observed this.
My streaming setup is: capture card (EZCAP U3), a Sony CX160 camcorder, and windows 10 or mac laptop running OBS.
If I use the 3.5mm mic input on my camcorder as my audio source I notice noise on the audio channel, even if there is no audio feeding into the mic cable. The noise appears just by plugging in a 3.5mm jack. See attached picture.

The noise is audible if I stream and listen to it.

Thank you for your help
