Important parts

What is the issue you’re having?
FiveM appears to be messing up audio for my whole system.

(Following investigation is what I’ve noticed happening, I’m not 100% sure these are the correct reproduction steps)
Whenever I’m in a queue, but end up not being able to get on the server (be it queue crash, FiveM error or whatnot), after starting up FiveM again, audio coming out of my mic becomes distorted and robotic. Sounds much like when you set your audio latency too low in a DAW while using software drivers like ASIO4All or something (which I’m not). It’s happening for the whole system, not only FiveM - validated by recording my voice using OBS. It only affects audio input, output sounds fine.

What are you trying to do?
I’m trying to use the ingame VOIP.

What have you tried already to fix the issue?
Only workarounds I came up with thus far are either rebooting the PC (which I’d rather not) or unplugging the audio interface and plugging it back, but doing that usually messes up my audio - I can’t hear anyone nor anyone can hear me in game.

Error screenshot (if any):

What did you do to get this issue?
It seems to be happening whenever I get disconnected from the queue.

What server did you get this issue on?

Additional comments

Let me know if you need anything else. I’d rather not add CitizenFX logs as they don’t look obfuscated enough to make them public.
