How do you have it plugged in just now. Many mics run a fair distance on stages etc.... Just try a longer cable ?



Just a regular jack.

The mics you'd find on a music stage use a balanced signal. This makes them much more resilient to interference. If it's just a regular jack then it'll be unbalanced so a long cable run will pick up loads of interference.

Probably the easiest option is to get a usb mic or usb sound card and extend the usb.
