USB microphone sounds muffled in Ventrilo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have an XLR to USB converter and an AKG Dynamic Microphone. I installed the drivers for the XLR to USB converter and it works great on and recordings, it sounds great. However, whenever I talk on Ventrilo My voice sounds muffled. I have reset all of my outbound EQ's and all of my SFX properties and made sure to select the USB microphone in Ventrilo. I have searched around the internet and found a lot of unanswered threads about this issue. So the question is, how do i fix this?

specific mic? i'd guess its the fact that its going through USB that's causing the problem, i'd try not using the mic through USB if possible.

The exact Microphone is the AKG D5S. It's not great but I got it from a buddy of mine and thought I'd use it. Unfortunately, converting it to quarter inch is not an option right now for me.
