  1. this is the first tutorial I've been able to sit thru without ripping my hair out, but how do you have microphone on there? for audio it only says desktop audio for me..

  2. I doubt anyone will see this but I’ve been having a problem when I look back at my obs recordings because for some reason I hear this static noise I thought it was my headset but after trying to headsets and even just disconnecting my headset and using my computer mic I still hear that static noise anyone know where I can fix this?
