Question / Help OBS for Linux continually switches my microphone to the default setting, resulting in buzzing/beeping sounds.

I've been trying to stream to Twitch more frequently lately, but often when I do, OBS will suddenly change my microphone settings mid-stream to the default setting, which is apparently buzzing and beeping sounds. Here's a clip from the last stream I did from Linux that shows this.

How can I stop this from happening? Less then an hour ago I tried streaming from a Windows VM as a solution, but OBS and everything else kept crashing and the stream was a complete dumpster fire, so Linux is the only way to go. I am running Elementary OS, and I am using version 25.0.8 of OBS from the apt repository.
