My friend from Texas gave me his Razer Barracuda headset for free. I quickly went out and bought a new surround sound card to use the full extent of this godly headset. I launch Ventrilo and talk to my friends on there, only to realize they can BARELY hear me. in turned up my inbound to max, my mic volume on my OS to max, and everything else i can think of, but it doesnt help at all.
and just to eliminate Ventrilo as the culprit, the sound recorder that comes with windows records my voice very quietly as well.
Now, thats the first problem. The second problem is:
Over time, my team began to get adjusted to it and dealt with the quietness (which i still want fixed), but now it has a playback thing going on, where they hear exactly what i hear. As if i had speakers on max, with my microphone right next to it. In order for them to hear me, there cant be ANYTHING going on in my headset, it has to be quiet.
I played with SOOOOO many settings, but eventually gave up and now it is pissing me off. Has anyone had any similar experiences? i know this loopback thing happens frequently to others, so hopefully someone has a fix?
Thanks in advance
