Asus TUF15 Extremely Loud Microphone Input

Hi,

I just installed Arch on my Asus Tuf 15 laptop. Everything is ok except the mic input. The sound is extremely loud. Currently I can only use the mic when I set the level to 10% in pavucontrol and 60% percent in discord. Any higher and clipping starts.

Re: Asus TUF15 Extremely Loud Microphone Input

look at the output of

amixer -c0

or whatever card is the correct index (check arecord -l) is and lower a potentially activated mic boost.

Thank you V1del! However, micboost values are all set 0 in the output below. Am I missing something?
