    W10 2h22 - Noise in the audio


    Hi, I'm new here and I have a big problem. My audio has a noise that bothers me a lot in windows, the funny thing is that it doesn't appear in discord, games or anything

    Only on windows it appears with this I can't use obs and audacity, has anyone had this problem?

    The b550 tuf board is the realtek alc s1200a

    Mic boost on? The only time I have heard that is from the mic boost "boosting" the noise floor...or ground loops in the equipment, etc. Weird that it would not happen in discord (unless it is doing some noise filtering?) but does in OBS.

    My ALC1200 on an ASRock B550 Pro4 has to have mic boost up to +20 or my voice is too low, but seems noiseless enough. If I had done that with my last ALC887 mainboard though, it would have been hissing like mad.

    So, the discord has a noise filter. I've looked into the Ground Loop already, but I don't think that's the issue here. This same grounding did not give a problem until a few months ago

    Yeah ground looping usually happens when you have several separate devices working at once, like an external usb audio interface plus a mic, PC, and a receiver/amp, powered sub woofer, etc. Just thought I'd mention it just in case though.

    Anyway, from the recording, it didn't sound terrible, but I can see how it would be annoying. To me it just sounds like a noisy onboard audio device, with a mic boost on. All I can think of is to try different mics, or different audio device all together, like the aforementioned external usb audio interface. They're not exactly cheap, but not too expensive for entry level. Try plugging the mic into a different input, front vs rear? Some boards are way more noisy in one spot or the other.

    I have the older 2i4 version of the Focusrite, and the M-Audio M-Track Solo. Both do the job fine for recording my guitars. My onboard Realtek ALC1200 seems to do fine for typical gaming voice coms (discord, etc.) though...and your B550 TUF, is way more pricey than my ASRock B550 Pro4, so no idea really. What are you using for a microphone? I have been using this cheapo mic cable with my Philips SHP9500 headphones.

    $100 Focusrite Solo: Amazon Focusrite Solo
    $50 M-Audio M-Track: Amazon M-Audio M-Track Solo

    Have you checked your audio drivers settings for any noise filtering? Pretty sure mine has it but I never check the box. I use old style HDA Realtek drivers too, I hate the new UAD ones that have some third party software "hijacking" the effects. Nahimic, Creative, etc.

    I prefer the stand alone, full featured HDA driver, and avoiding Nahimic, etc. completely...as long as I can still get away with it.
    Driver HDA ASRock 6.0.9239.1 FF00 Direct Link.
