Question / Help OBS not picking up any mic activity, Discord and Windows are.


New Member
In essence, OBS can't detect any activity through the Mic, Windows and Discord can however. The mic is set as "Mix/Auxilliary Audio Device", default communications and default devices in Windows 7. It is not muted anywhere on the PC, including OBS, I have so far tried changing the mic device to "default", restarting the application and restarting the PC, to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated regarding this.

Try this - To disable Exclusive Mode, right-click the speaker icon in the System Tray and select "Playback Devices" or "Recording Devices," right-click on the audio device you want to change and select "Properties," then go to the "Advanced" tab and uncheck both checkboxes.

Otherwise, please post a log after configuring the headset in OBS.
