ok heres my problem my mic that I got for cristmas this year doesn’t work in gmod I’ve tested it out in gmod, but when I join a server it doesnt work I dont know why and i was hoping that you guys would help me out.

here is what i know on my mic:

ClearChat Pro USB
SoundSwitch Equalizer

you have to

not be 10

I assume you’ve got ‘voice chat’ bound to a key in options, and you’re actually pressing the key when you try and speak?

Go into Control Panel > Sound > Recording and make sure your microphone is selected for input.
