So yeah, I'm at my witz-end here. Oculus software recognizes the mic with no issue and I can see the virtual audio headset device to select as an input but the volume stays at half in Windows and does not pick up anything in Windows voice recorder, OBS, SteamVR, Discord, etc.
tried disabling and re-enabling it in the device manager with no luck
as well as confirmed that windows privacy settings are enabled for the
mic to use apps. Someone suggested trying the Oculus beta software build
or potentially using the included driver install package executable in
the program files folder but again, no luck. Anyone have any ideas? I know the mic works fine by itself when its not over link cable.
