Audio in recording is ok, but monitor output to apps like discord and zoom are distorted

So I'm trying to setup my OBS for teaching and gaming on the side.

For teaching, My mic goes thru Nvidia RTX for noise suppression which feeds into my OBS. From there I have a bunch of EQ filters to bump up the quality of my voice. I output that audio through the monitor into VB-Cable. I use the VB-Cable as my mic in other communication programs like discord, zoom, google meet. I do this so that the voice audio would be better.

I just noticed while assigning VB-Cable to the other apps' microphone testing feature that the quality sucks (distortion, cutting off, etc ) compared to the one from a recording made on OBS.

I have voicemeeter potato installed for isolating audio for the gaming side of my obs captures. I tried recording the mic output on that and getting the same problem. So it isnt just a problem with the apps recording features.

Is this a problem with VB-Cable or the quality of OBS's monitor output not that good?
