Crazy volume level problems when recording Screen Capture Video

I am having issues with mic levels when recording Screen Capture videos. 

I am using a PC, with Chrome browser. The mic is a USB Yeti Blue.

When recording Webcam Videos in Studio, the audio level is fine and I can adjust it with the gain controller on the mic if I want. So I know my mic is interfacing with Studio just fine.

But when I switch to record Screen Capture videos, the gain shoots way up and the audio is SO loud on playback. I am selecting the correct microphone in Settings. It even pics up the sound of clicking the touchpad mouse.

This happens even when I adjust the mic levels in the pop-up Settings menu within Studio (either manually or using the auto-set feature.) It happens whether or not I am using Computer Audio. 

I have restarted and updated my computer. 

I'm going crazy trying to record lectures with this problem. If anyone has insights or ideas, it would be much appreciated!

Hi Eric,


I'm not certain this will answer your question, but there seem to be a few others with similar problems out on the net regarding USB Yeti Blue (like windows 10). Perhaps start here:


I hope this helps,
