how's about pops,clicks and lag when recording plugins from Reaper with OBS, as well as "why" when I record my video ex: Me, playing guitar to a song, sounds great, looks synced up..post it to say facebook, and..outta nowhere it seems..it's now outta sync? Just curious if you know of any settings or tricks..

I have spent the last 5 days and watched I don't know how many hours of youtube. No matter what settings and 3rd party program I try every single whisper and key click is recorded. I think I'm just going to have to make CC'd videos with music overlays :-p

Cave8 Gaming (27 days ago)
Great video, excellent sound there Dusty! Been refining my audio for obs to hopefully avoid most - if not all post processing in audacity. Starting my channel doing gameplay recording and later plan to live stream so pro tips are welcome. You earned a sub - thanks man! I will share this vid with others looking to up their obs game.

Thanks much for this tutorial. I have adjusted my audio to my liking, however i have an issue after i upload. Anyone watching on a device other than a mobile phone can hear my voice loud and clear, however anyone using a mobile cant hear my voice very well because the volume setting on mobiles dont go high enough. If you can please assist me on how to fix this issue, i will be grateful.
I cant get my audio from my PS4 to my SLOBS

how do I find out what my microphone is called in the "sounds" menu (when you right click the volume and press sounds, just in case)?
Raceplays (19 days ago)
Lol oops I ran into the same video. I just wanted to review my current settings. XD
jazzysocksdude (24 days ago)
If you go into the windows sounds menu (right click on volume bottom right and select sounds), go to the recording tab and tap on your microphone. It should make the bar on the right hand side next to your mic change colour.

Great video bud. I use the snowball ice black usb mic. My recordings seem a lot better audio than my streams what could i be doing wrong. ? Also going to try some filters got a cold at the mo (heavy breathing) hope the noise gates will cure this.

I don't know why but my mic always makes a shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh noise in the background
TheMan (26 days ago)
Cave8 Gaming thanks bro. My friends on the Windows 10 Xbox app hated that noise in the background. I don't know how to do it live like when I'm in calls with friends and etc.
Cave8 Gaming (27 days ago)
sensitive mics can do that - these obs settings should help, if it persists look into de essing, (sibilance) or try a low pass filter in a program like audacity to reduce it. I use a rode nt-usb and it picks up everything, nailed it down to decent levels with what Dusty shows here. It could also be a plug/wire issue but start with software :)

Kevin Parsley (2 months ago)
if anyone is coming here to try to figure out why your speakers output is being recorded with a concert hall type of sound, for me it was because of sound processing by wavesmaxxsound (Dell app to adjust realtek settings). My headphones sound nothing like the recording OBS made, but turning off the following effect fixed everything. Open your OS sound setting software. wavesmaxxsound was the app on my machine. I had to go to the middle tab in the app and turn of surround sound effects. they didnt call it surround sound, but that is what it is.

Dusty Porter (2 months ago)
That is what I like to hear :)
Great tutorial thanks
Ronny Schwartz (2 months ago)
Instead of recording to check the sound quality. Open "advanced sound settings", and change the input mic setting to "monitor on" (or whatever it is in English". That way you can listen to your changes in real time. Just remember to change it back to "Monitor off", unless you wanna keep hearing yourself. I hope it made sense
Ultimate Trolls (2 months ago)
for some reason obs will record any sound coming from the computer but not from my mic, can anyone help?
Haulin Assassin (2 months ago)
Just confused on how to recorded this as a livestream but when you talk the microphone bar isnt reacting to to it
I noticed in your filters, you have the VST Plugin. You run that often for your interface or are you bouncing to project daw? I run a home studio for music so wanted to incorp my Reaper software into OBS. Alas, im not seeing the dramatic changes id expect with the VST plugin. Any words on this?
Charles Gerber Jr. (2 months ago)
OK, Dusty. My name is Charlie and I'm 64 years old trying hard to learn how to Stream my Ark Game the best I can. Thanks for the video as this is the best of all i have looked at, but there is one thing missing in a lot of videos. Everyone says to always test your mic on OBS before Streaming. But no one has shown people how to test your mic. I have done two Streams on Twitch and one had to much background noise and the other one no one could hear me. My Twitch name is TheGerb01 and if you listen to my recordings,,, You'll say,,,I know what that is. Thanks again for the video as it helped me set up filters.
LittleKing817 (2 months ago)
There is sadly no option to mic test. So record a short video with you saying different words, listen to it, and if its good, keep the settings.

Hot Cheeto (8 months ago)
Awesome video Dusty. Thanks. I can't seem to find an answer to my question though. I only want OBS to pick up audio from the game I am playing. I like to listen to music while I play or sometimes I am in discord call. I want to record ONLY audio from my game. is there a way to set that up ?
Careers R Us (8 months ago)
I am trying to record from youtube. But my OBS mixer does not move in the green, yellow, red area at all when someone is talking. I think thats why when I record I get no sound. Can you tell me how I can fix it? Ive been fooling around with this for weeks

Hellow Dusty, idk why but for a reason the Destok Audio on my obs its very low (levels go on to 40MAX) and when im streaming people cant hear my friends on discord (everything its ok with discord), but for example Youtube Videos, Discord, Spotify, etc, are too low on OBS Destok Sound Bars, Do you know whats going on?
