Question Blue Ice Mic/OBS; How to Change This?


May 7, 2018
Hi, I record videos to upload to YouTube. I use OBS with a Blue Ice mic for audio. Everything is working and the audio is good, however, the audio seems to be shutting off when I'm not speaking and then registering sound when I begin to speak again. This is obviously useful for eliminating background noise, but it's causing the background hum to cut in and out depending on if I'm speaking or not and it's quite noticeable. It's also, at times, failing to initally pick up my voice for the first 1-2 seconds after a period of silence.

I'd rather have the background noise recording permanently, without this smart feature, but I don't know how to disable it? Is this a setting in OBS or is there some way to disable it via my computer?
