I have checked the properties tab of my mic and it was set to 100% (the max) and have tried playing around with the Realtek audio settings, but so far I can't find a solution that works.
This problem occurs with two different headsets (Creative Fatality (±9 years old) and 2.4G Wireless Headset (2 months old)) and a standalone microphone (no brand name, second hand) and they all require roughly the same amount of audio boosting, so I am assuming that the issue is software related, not hardware.
I record audio with the following settings:
- Codec: PCM
Extra: I do not use Two Sound Mixing
Mic specs of normally used headset:
- Sensitivity: -35dB
Direction: Omni directional
Frequency response: 100Hz-8kHz
Other info (most likely not relevant):
- OS: Win10 x64
Bandicam version: 18.104.22.1685
Primary Sound Device: Win10 Sound (WASAPI)
Secondary Sound Device: Microphone (2.4G Wireless Headset)
Realtek Driver Version: 10.0.10586.0
Audio card: Onboard Audio Chipset - Asus Crosshair V Formula
Also, I play (and record) a lot of a game called Project Reality (war-sim) where you communicate with other players. They don't seem to have trouble hearing me (concerning volume)
Hope I have stated the problem clearly and provided the necessary info. If anything is missing, just ask and I'll provide it.
Hope that one of you is able to help me out.
Thanks in advance!
