I've already troubleshot and resolved the issue, my recording's come out well so I don't need help on that end, I just want to know how this issue that I had happened.
I have a wooden bookshelf, real wood all the way through, and I put a phone on the shelf and plugged a wired microphone into the phone. Recorded my audio/video, listened back and discovered an angry buzzing background noise that also degraded recorded sound. After troubleshooting, I found that if the point where the microphone was plugged into the phone is in the shelf, with wood above and below it, the interference happens. This problem was resolved by having the phone hang off the edge of the shelf. I am baffled though, how would an empty wooden shelf make something like this happen?
