Not sure I understand what you want and what's happening.

  1. Do you WANT to drop the volume of the track while speaking, but it's not happening?
  2. Or do you WANT the music to not drop in volume while speaking, but it does?
  3. Or is the problem your voice not being broadcasted at all?

Windows 10, Blue Snowball (USB) mic

I *think* the user above has the same problem as I do. Let me try to restate:

The mic has worked quite well in the past. I have tried re-installing, driver update, etc.
1) When music is playing and I speak, I see activity on the mic volume, but my voice does not break in over the music.
2) When no music is playing, and I speak, I see a flicker of activity on the mic, but then... after a few seconds, nothing.

TIA for suggestions.

That's definitely information we can work with.

Firs thing to check is your Encoder settings. Unless you have good reason to do otherwise, the Encoders Window should have the blue DSP button pressed (in old SAM versions it's just a blue circle).

With that checked, go to the VoiceFX window, Turn off the "Mic On"-Button so you can check the VoiceFX config (the config button is disabled while the mic is enabled)

In there check the VoiceFX destination. Usually you want this to be targetting the Mixer (Record to Pipeline) setting. The other settings are for advanced use cases only and should only be chosen if you're sure you know what's going to happen.

Last but not least, make sure you have the correct recording device selected. Usually Direct Sound recorder and Primary "something" (I don't know what this "thing" is called in English, my Windows is using the German localization) is the settings chosen there.
Especially with USB mics that are attached to a USB-Hub or not always present, it's probably safer to select primary here and let Windows handle the default device. You could however try to explicitly select the correct microphone here if that doesn't work for you.
