Hey guys. I am having the biggest issue with my mic. Its a condenser mic, and when i record, its also picking up my computer sounds. I dont have speakers, and my headset isnt loud enough. It is effected by the volume, and i know it happens in audacity. As you can guess, as a lets play youtuber, this is a very annoying issue. Do you guys have any idea what i can do to fix this? Im on windows 10.

If you record your audio with Audacity, which is free by the way, you can use the noise reduction effect before recording.

Have you tried the noise gate plug in to remove it? Is that still a thing? We used it in a technology course I took at one point...

You download it I'm pretty sure from audacity and you extract it, and then copy and paste into the audacity files. There is probably a tutorial on YouTube.

ill have to look into it. Its not like its picking it up from external. Its like something internal thats recording it though. its really strange. maybe my mic is just possessed or something lol.
