Discord has decided that audio that sounds fine when recorded locally should sound like a cheap speakerphone when transmitted through their service.

I have tripple-checked to make sure it's the correct mic.

I have turned on and off the various settings Discord has for audio.

I have had friends tell me that whatever I did made an improvement or made it worse while I wasn't touching anything.

I am perturbed.


Got a response from Discord tech support!

They asked me to do all the things I did before contacting them and then asked for all the information I included in the original ticket.

Including the information that, if I didn't include, wouldn't allow me to submit the ticket in the first place.
