I've very proficient on OBS but I've never come across this noise gate problem problem before. When I end up recording I edit my voice through audacity afterwards when editing within Vegas. This allows me to remove background noise and add filters to my voice. I cannot find anything on the internet where someone has faced this issue before. I can try to use teamviewer to help you but this issue seems more complicated than that. I don't wanna pry and say that it may be set up wrong cause I'd like to see for myself and that would make me sound rude. I'd also recommend deleting OBS and getting the better version called OBS multiplatform since you can just right click on sources and add filters to your voice now or just simply edit the audio through audacity after recording. Hope you figure it out always here to help outI always use headphone when I talk to people over voice chat. Whether I'm gaming/recording or not. I don't want them echoing and hearing themself over and over.
So that's not the issue.
It won't be a simple thing cuz if it was I would've already found out what was causing it.
It's just that for some reason skype/curse/etc shuts out my noise gate on OBS which if you know what a noise gate is, what obs is (or any other program that uses it) that shouldn't be a thing.
Well thing is you can do this when you have multiple audio sources and extract the audio using windowsI actually had OBS multi but I'm not a fan of it. I mostly found it interesting cuz of the multiple sound sources you can use and eventually edit but not all editing software makes this possible for example, camtasia 8 doesn't recognize the different sources and only a single sound source is editable.
Just for the record, I use camtasia cuz I've been using it for years, it's really easy and it has allowed me to do everything I wanted to do so far without being to ... messy. I tried out vegas and other software but they just didn't feel right.
I'll probably mess around with settings in obs as well as the voice chat software I use to see what the problem might be.
It might be possible the skype/curse/etc suddenly changes the output of the sound to my mic (since it has a build in headphone socket), but originally the sound comes trough my headphones and only trough my headphones.
