Hi there. I am having very extreme issues with my microphone in Garry's Mod. It is no other steam game, only Gmod. I have tried all the console commands (@rako was giving me some commands to try out in game, none of which did anything), steam picks up my microphone, but Gmod doesn't. Here are some pictures of my settings in both Steam and Gmod.

Gmod Voice Settings: https://gyazo.com/e8dde41efe5c8ce071d726e900a61841

Gmod Audio Settings: https://gyazo.com/256c9908961e77f311364a627e2af7f3

Steam Settings: https://gyazo.com/75ee586932ed93d27f22405d83259beb

Have you tried disabling every other mic other than the one you use?
Right click the sound icon in the bottom right and click sounds
Then click recording and disable all the other ones that you don't use except for the mic you are using, should look like this:

Make sure your mic input is set to default device not default communication device. Sometimes windows switchs them and it's annoying. Double check, double check, double check.

Hi there, I appreciate your suggestion @A Sack O' Salt, this worked!

Please close this thread, thanks!

(EDIT:)
I have spent over 5 days searching for a damn solution, going through tons of videos, doing tons of bank robberies typing, mugging tons of people typing, and it has gotten cancer. Thank you so much <3<3<3
