Checking the Sound Settings in Windows

In Windows, some audio applications will take exclusive control of an audio device driver while in use so that other applications cannot play audio through that device at the same time.

Disabling the Exclusive Mode options in Windows Sound Preferences can solve this by preventing audio applications from taking exclusive control.

Right-click in the "Sound icon > Sound > Sound Control Panel"

Select the device you are using for Playback > Properties", then, uncheck Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device".

Checking the option Do nothing

Go to the Communications tab and select "Do nothing". Otherwise, this can lead to fade in / fade out situations.

Then confirm that the audio input and output in Callbar are set to Communications" so that the microphone level is unaltered by audio normalizing software.
