Re: Troubles recording vocals through bass octave effect

That sounds like you're picking up some kind of
interference, or have an earthing problem.

Could it be that the mic is getting close to the laptop
at that time?
I'd guess that all those digital electronics in the laptop
are causing that noise to start with, that's quite common.
...but normally it's due to the earthing in the laptop
power supply and it just sounds all the time, whereas
your problem fades in and out..

Things to try
1) use laptop on batteries only

2) go through a "silent run" of your performance,
picking things up, moving  and holding them as usual
while listening out for the ring.

If you try to listen for where I sing a bassline into an octave pedal you all of a sudden hear a weird high end distortion. I thought my OP had a different link as it is me just playing acoustic harp and then setting up a couple of loops. I am checking my work computer for a better example....|http://mikefugazzi.com/files/HeyJoeDistorted.mp3

You can really hear it around the 55s mark.
