I was researching recording microphones sometime back with the thought of buying one at some point, and in going over the product reviews for any given microphone, this particular topic of how shielding the microphone's cabling was or was not was constantly coming up, so yes, I'd say it is.  ;D

Aha, I see.

Any recommendations as to brands that aren't base-level Chinese junk?

Incidentally guys, it's clear that if this is the case then I'm going to have to put down some more money for a really high quality stereo cable. While I'm very motivated to get this done and show this music to you guys, pocket cash is rather scarce for me right now, and the stereo cable doesn't have a lot of utility for me otherwise so it's not a terribly robust investment. It may be a while before I get this done.

Before you spend the money... Is the whine present in the speakers of the old Mac when you are not recording?

Not much actually. But if you had said yes, it would have meant it's not caused by the cable between the old Mac and newer machine.

So I'm still going to get a shielded cable.

Any recommendations for brand/specific product?

Nor do I, I just recommend you do your research, read product reviews, etc, before buying.

Right-o, thanks. I'm going to take my time and buy the best cable I can reasonably get.

So don't hold your breath. But I will not forget about this, it will get done and I will revisit this topic, even if it's not for a few months.

Hey all!

So it is, as predicted, taking me a long time to get around to buying a proper stereo cable and recording that music (fingers crossed that that actually works out!)

So for the moment, here's the rough recording that I got from the menu to test my original (and decidedly cheap/crummy) stereo cable. It would be a fine recording except for that whine, which we are assuming comes from the cable being unshielded. This will give you guys a taste of what I'm talking about and prove my claim that the music is different.  ;) The recording is also, unfortunately, incomplete as I believe I cut it off a few seconds before reaching the end of the loop.

So yeah, please let me know what you think!

Yeah, definitely different from most other versions I've heard...this version really brings out the drums and percussion.
