  1. Xbox Game Bar acting up and it kills me


    So I have 2 problems:

    1. My microphone is always disabled when I start a recording. Which means I have to click the microphone whenever I start a recording. This sucks if I'm in the middle of a game and I want to record a moment. I've already given XGB permission to use the microphone and checked the setting that enables the microphone by default (which it doesnt..)
    2. My microphone sounds like utter shit. In Windows I have my microphone (Samson Meteor) set to 50% because it sounds good and there's little noise. But then whenever I record with the game bar, it sounds as if it's at 100% and has automatic gain adjustments. WHY? I've disabled all effects both inside Windows sound settings AND in Steam (I record games).

    Here's a small clip of the increasing gain. What is going on?

    Xbox Game Bar Capture Doesn't Record Mic Audio

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while recording microphone audio using game bar while playing games.



    I would suggest you to try troubleshooting Game Bar and see if that helps. Refer the article

    In addition, you can also check if the Microphone for game bar is enabled under privacy settings.



    1. Go to Settings (press Windows +
      I key together) > Privacy.
    2. On the left hand pane scroll down and look for
      Microphone
      .
    3. Toggle Allow apps to access Microphone
      to ON.
    4. Under Choose which Microsoft Store app can access your Microphone toggle Xbox game bar to
      ON.
    5. Restart the game bar.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with details of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.
