Farting noise from air con compressor?

Just noticed when I have my AC on, I hear a "farting noise" at just above idle coming from the right side of the engine compartment. It goes away as it accels or decels from that sweet spot. It only happens with the AC on.
Any ideas?

The A/C lines on the right hand side can rattle/rumble at slightly above idle speeds. Secure them with zip ties and see if it goes away.
