Played around with a podcast last night for an hour and I actually recorded one but I am not releasing it because there is an annoying background hum from the disk.

How do I remove the hum of my hard disk from my podcast? I am looking for an inexpensive and quick solution if one exists. Don't want to be doing heavy duty audio stuff that requires a lot of time.

Better yet, how do I prevent this hum from occurring in the first place? I have set my Processor Performance to Highest in the Energy Save System Preference.

I am using Mac OS 10.3.5 on a 15" Powerbook and GarageBand to record. It's weird because my first podcast didn't have this problem and I used the identical setup.

My next attempt will try Audacity. Maybe it won't have this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.
