Phasmophobia kills mic levels

So idk why but in discord my mic is great volume and sound great. In phasmophobia my volume acts like it has a 70% volume damper on it so I have to Max it out completely. I only have one mic attached and it's reading the right mic but for some reason it lowers the audio like crazy. I checked settings..... in beta it seems I can boost it but not in normal. This is on Ubuntu btw

you probably have auto volume on in discord so it boosts and adjusts for quality automatically, phasmophobia definitely doesn't have the same focus on automatic features. 

https://badlinuxadvice.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/how-to-mic-boost-in-gnulinux/ might help diagnose the phasmophobia low volume issue

Current Config:


R5 2600X @4.1ghz all core, 16GB Patriot 3200mhz, 1TB XPG SX8200 Pro nvme, RTX 2070 Duke, CM Elite 110 mitx, pair of KRK Rokit 6 monitors with 10in sub, BenQ TH671ST projector for 150" screen. 

MSI Prestige 14 with too many cooling mods to list out (it's quiet now)

Zoom or any other thing shoves my mic down because the input is very strong. It's one of thoes Samson gtrack usb mics, like i could blow someone's ears off in discord at 80% volume. I'll look into that though, never really had any issue witu this mic in anything else before
