echo reduction and echo cancellation and still i have this issue... any suggestions?
For anybody that can help troubleshoot wiz's issue (please!), he's actually using headphones, but still broadcasts both background noise as well as game noises through his mic...I really have no idea how the game sounds are getting through since he's got cans on..??
There are multiple reasons for this issue.
Here's a small checklist to see what might be the issue:
Make sure there is something playing on your speakers, roughly at the volume you'd have when you are playing the game (Some rock-music would do fine).
1. Is your headphone a separated channel from your speakers? (Audio-settings in Windows/Audio-panel)
1.1 Make sure, under windows, there is NO microphone boost set!
2. Make sure Teamspeak has the correct input and output set:
2.1 TS => Settings => Options => Playback: Mode [Automatically use best mode], Device [Headphone]
2.1.2 With the play-test-sound button, adjust your volume to it's best setting.
2.3 TS => Settings => Options => Capture: Mode [Automatically use best mode], Device [Microphone]
2.4 Set it on Voice Activation Detection and click "Begin Test"
2.4.1 Slide the slider-thingy to a level where, as you would talk a bit loud, you can hear yourself echo back (this is intentional echo for the testing)
2.4.2 Adjust the slider until you can't hear any echoing from your speaker.
2.4.3 Check Echo reduction, Echo cancellation and under Advanced options Remove Background noise and Automatic voice gain control
2.4.4 Set the echo reduction reduces playback by: to somewhere around 10db (that usually should do the trick)
2.4.5 Test by going online. If you still echo, set the echo reduction higher until you have found the perfect setting.
This takes some time and tweaking if your mic is sensitive.
I hope this short guide to "setting up your teamspeak" helps you. It seems to me, it's a matter of tweaking.
Some pc's however, seem to take the "audio out" as microphone. This is VERY annoying behaviour, which indeed causes massive echoing.
If this is the case, there's something set wrong in your audio-control panel in Windows.
