    Hi guys,
    I have followed the example schematic (for the most part) on the data sheet (pg7), but it seems to be distorting quite badly. And there ain't much volume output at all. I'm using a proven good SM58 and going into the line-input on my little mixer. A couple things I did differently: 1, I used a 10K pot for R7. and 2, I connected pin 5 to my reference GND (which is a 1/2VCC created with a couple equal resistors and a buffer op amp). Would either of these things I have altered cause distortion.

    Thanks in advance!
    rock on!
