Problems with mic when using Discord

When I want to VC with my friends, I have to boot to Windows to use Discord there because no one can hear me when using Discord for Linux.  I've tried both installing it via AUR and Flatpak with the same results.  Not too sure what info to provide, but here's inxi output to start.

Re: Problems with mic when using Discord

When having a discord call open (... can also just be the mic/voice test in settings) What's your output of

sudo fuser -v
arecord -lL
pactl list cards
pactl list sources
pactl list source-outputs

Please also wrap command outputs in bbcode code tags and adjust your first post accordingly.

Re: Problems with mic when using Discord

I have "pavucontrol" installed to have a look at the audio devices and applications which use audio.

Which audioserver do youo use? Pulseaudio or pipewire?

Re: Problems with mic when using Discord

Try opening pavucontrol after joining the voice call.

I also have a problem where no one can hear me on a Discord call, but the issue disappears immediately once i open pavucontrol. I just posted a thread about this.
