Compressed Game/Low Mic Audio in Recordings


New Member
Hello! I'm trying to record gameplay clips for Rivals of Aether, and when I go to my recordings I've found that my game audio is super compressed and my mic audio is barely noticeable. I used to use SLOBS and get crisp audio quality, but now with the same settings in OBS I'm getting super reduced quality, I would appreciate any help.

To my knowledge everything should have the same Sample Rate, and I have Windows Audio Ducking disabled, yet my recordings of the stream still have compressed Audio. Is there anything else that you might see?
