Windows 7: Microphone Quality Problems

Microphone Quality Problems

I do gaming commentaries with my friend and I use Nvidia Shadowplay to record. Recently I got a Samson Meteor, reading really good reviews about it. It was great the first few weeks, but lately it has had worse and worse quality. I have tried using Audacity and that records my voice perfectly but of course it doesn't record his. When I record my voice in Shadowplay the quality is really bad and I can hear my keyboard and mouse clicks and everything.

Is there any way to solve this?

Since it records OK in Audacity, it says the microphone and the PC's sound card are OK. The problem is in the specific application, Shadowplay and/or all the other applications that are running at the same time.

Check to see if there are any settings or if others have had audio quality problems with Shadowplay.

I'm not a gamer and know nothing about that application. Maybe posting in the gaming section will get some help with that.
