Microphone volume low and mutes automatically


I have recently been facing an issue where my mic automatically mutes while speaking and for some reason the default mic volume is also very low. The mic works fine on windows. I am on the latest stable branch.

I am not sure what data to provide here to diagnose this issue, so please let me know the type of information that you require.

Thank you. Regards.
