Repeating microphone audio

by Automaton » Feb 06, 2012

I'm getting the issue of audio repeating on my stream whenever me and my friend talk on the mic. It repeats (albeit at a quieter volume) regardless of whether I have the stream open or muted or whatever. It only does this if recoring my voice (microphone) is enabled and not muted, whereas no repeating occurs if I just record sound of the speakers. I need to be able to record both microphone sound and also game sound as I'll be doing commentary. It's obviously the mic causing this, but how can I fix it? I've changed the settings multiple times to multiple things.

So how exactly do you talk to your friend? via Skype?

if you try to do, let's say, a local recording, does it produce the same repeat?

I had some similar problem but I always tought it was because of my new Sound Mixer.
What I did was in windows to "NOT LISTEN" to my line-in port. If I remember correctly.

Are you using a headset for listening or desktop speakers? To me it sounds like your audio from the speakers are picked up by your mic which causes the feedback loop. If that's the case, try lowering the volume of the speakers or use a headset.
