Gday! **I edited the title of the thread to make it a bit more universal and get a discussion going on who uses what. What microphone are people using? Reaper is a free audio software. Incredibly powerful. But the thing we are interested in is the VST plugins that are compatible with OBS! https://www.reaper.fm/reaplugs/ You can use any number of these plugins to tweak your audio. Personally I use a combination of. - Noise gate. I use this to cut out any background noise picked up by my XLR microphone. I have ZERO PC fan or hum noise. Well techincally its not cutting it out. The audio just doesnt trigger until a particular decibel. (Not my settings) - Compression. Careful with this. Basically it takes the peaks of highs and lows and squashes them together in volume. Which is great for bringing down those HYPE screams and yelling. Any also bringing up your quiet whispering voice. Makes the sound more FULL aswell. However if you over do it the audio becomes very flat and loses its dynamics. (Not my settings) - EQ with small bass boost. On voice and game audio. Just to make those guns, explosions and my voice sound that little bit THICC'er. (Not my settings) I highly recommend researching up on how to implement VST's into your stream. Makes a big difference and costs nothing.
