Weird noise on condenser microphone...

Hello guys...

Anyone here knows what this noise* means?

* here is the link:

I did some tests and the problem is in the microphone...
Not cable, nor audio interface...
 
So, the question is... Which part?

    Your link does not open anything, just a google page for Dropbox.
     
    best for audio to open a fee account with Sound Cloud, Sound Click or? Dropbox can be scary because we have to download and play. Best to play from the browser.

    Are you sure about that?
     
    The link is working here.. And you don't need to download it... Dropbox is working like soundcloud... with an embed player...

    Although I just did upload the same file to an old soundcloud account... is.. soundcloud dot com/rafaews/noise
     
     
    Thanks for your time

    My arm-chair guess: Your mic is broken. 
     
    Ok just kidding. I doubt this will be much help but I actually experienced something a bit similar with a U87 clone I built. When I first got it built and powered it up, it seemed like it worked fine and sounded great. But every time I powered it up after that, there was a fair amount of intermittent background noise, but only cardioid and figure 8. On the omni position it was perfect. Also in my case it sounded more like a sort of wind noise than the more electronic sounding noise yours is making.

    Although I fixed my issue, I really couldn't tell you exactly what the cause was. I tested and/or redid several wire connections to/from the position switch with no change. Then I disconnected the wires from the capsule, reversed the capsule in the mount, changed how the capsule wires were run (and twisted the pairs) and also went over both sides of both IC boards with cleaning solvent and a brush to make sure I got as much flux residue off as possible. When I put it back together, it worked great on all pickup patterns and has been working fine since.

     
    If gear was the determining factor, we would all have a shelf full of Grammies and a pocket full of change.  -microapp
