I am trying to record audio but even when the mic is muted the recording picks up white noise. It's not the mic because I've tried it with my headset mic and the same issue occurs. Not software either because it happens in both Audacity and OBS. I have an MSI B550-A Pro and I have the Realtek drivers installed.
