No audio output in applications but Record Mode and Hear yourself work

    Wow I would be surprised if this helped anyone. I have this issue and this oddly specific answer won't help us all.

    Edit: A lovely person on the support channel helped me find a solution to this issue! They suggested uninstalling, downloading a certain program called DriverStoreExplorer (, and using it to remove any drivers that had in it. In my case, I only found one driver. After uninstalling both and the driver(s), reinstall This worked for me and I hope it can help someone else. Cheers.

    Yea, I have the mic options, but they won't actually give audio

    I think what did it was my Visual C++. I basically ending up reinstalling/updating it:

    Before that though, I made sure all my current audio drivers were up-to-date. I then reinstalled Visual C++ and once again, deleted Voice.AI, used DriverStore to delete any leftover drivers. THEN restarted my PC. Reinstalled Voice.AI, and it's working fine now. PHEW.



    Having the same issue. No solution yet.

    Tried both updating my Windows, and also the DriverStore thing. Still not working. I can hear myself fine in Recorded / Live / Hear Myself. But when selecting the Input in Discord (and tried VRChat too), it says no audio detected from my mic. My Windows default is even the Input as well. And yes, I am aware it does not work with 'Hear Yourself' active.

    Also, btw, the Input shows as "Microphone Array ( Audio Cable)" not "CABLE Output (VB-Audio Virtual Cable).

    Update: Installed VB and set it up - and still no changes in anything. Still no audio detected.

    P.S. I've tested it with 4 mics. All work in-software, none work in outside programs/games. Blue Yeti, Antlion ModMic, Corsair Void Pro (Wireless), & a C920 webcam.

    I figured it out, it doesn't work if you have it set to hear yourself
