I have a Shure SM7B + Cloudlifter + Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd gen

 

I also have this problem in zoom meetings. The quality just sounds like a 10$ USB mic (muffled idk just bad).

The quality usually is insanely high quality on everything else like audacity.

Hey! Turn on "Original sound" in the left upper corner! That should fix everything! (did for me)
Hope that helps!

Where's that option? I'm looking in the config icon, then devices but see no such option

@SkyHooves When you're configuring the audio settings, there's an "Advanced" button; click that and there should be an option to enable original sound during meetings. I believe it doesn't turn it on automatically—it just gives you the option to turn it on and off during calls.

I have no such option, were you referring to Zoom or Teams?

I am chiming in on this thread to mention that I am using a Scarlett Solo + Shure SM58 and I am having the same issues as OP in Teams.

I have the same issue (Behringer U-phoria UM2 + Behringer C-1 mic).
