    I recently bought a new jack microphone to stream with. While the microphone works perfectly in Skype, everywhere else it has very weird volume changes.
    If I keep the microphone about 5 cm away from my mouth my voice is almost inppossible to hear, while if i put it closer by 1 cm, there is a huge volume boost and everything works perfectly. I know for sure that the microphone works, because I tried it with my phone, and, again with Skype, without any problems.
    I also tried updating the drivers, as well as disabling all the Windows enhancements, but the problem persists
    Thank you in advance,
