I've never heard a good reason to turn it off. I suppose if you were recording, the noise might be a factor.

+1 on not turning it off. heck, even recording it doesn't make much noise and is so far off axis as to be less of an issue than single coil hum.... LOL.

The only reason they put in the switch to disable the fan was for recording. No reason to turn it off otherwise.

Oh Wow! Thanks, guys. I didn't realize it and record with the thing on all the time. *groan* Oh well, you live and you learn. Makes sense and next recording off it goes. Thanks!
