    No "Microphone Boost" option in Windows 10


    Hello. As the title suggests, I am missing the "microphone boost" option on Windows 10.

    I had it previously with my SB Audigy sound card but after I made a switch to the X-fi Titanium, it has vanished. (All drivers are up to date).

    Confused by this, I switched back to the SB Audigy because I need the microphone boost option but now it is gone with the SB Audigy, with the drivers for it all up to date.

    I record videos and the microphone boost option disabled the hiss noise in the background of them but now with it gone the hissing is back and I can't record. I have the +20dB Boost option but if that is checked then the hissing noise is in the videos.

    Question is, can anyone help me get my microphone boost option back?

    Those settings are determined by sound card driver, see if you can change it.

    That is hardware related, not OS related.
