Microphone keeps adjusting its audio?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So. My persistent issue is still around. 

 

For some strange reason my mic likes to adjust its sound?

 

It's always on 100 on the level on windows, and the Audio interface is turned up a bit aswell.

 

I have a RODE NT1-A With a Behringer UMC22. This only started happening recently and has been a pain for such things like discord.

 

I've unticked the "exclusive" stuff and not letting it be taken control of, I've done the communications thing where it wont do anything if other programs intervene.

 

I'm stuck for answers.

Check you apps if they're set to auto adjust mic volume levels. Most applications do this by defualt.

Is there anyway I can do that?

 

Because I run a lot of programs that I don't know if i'd be able to check if they control my mic.

 

It just happens randomly even like

mid talking or, if i'm sat watching videos, or just playing games.

So on Discord for example, make sure this is disabled:

It's always disabled. I have it set to a slider.

 

The mic just gets fucked up by itself randomly.

Are you launching any games like CSGO? A lot of Valve games make the mic go to 100% volume whenever they start :)

Yeah, I'm playing CS:GO and Rust and so but I have it set so the microphone volume level stays the same through the cfg file, there's a line called "voice_mixer" or something along those lines where you can choose what level it is at, and i have it set to match my windows settings.

Have it doing the same thing, it still puts it to 100% every single time :P It doesnt always work
