First of all, disclaimer, that I am a little bit new to Linux distros.
I own Lenovo Thinkpad T495 and have installed Zorin OS 16 Pro-Lite on it and stumbled upon a problem with audio and microphone.
The audio quality is way worse and much more silent than in windows, probably due to post-processing software installed there, are there any alternatives for Xfce?
Also, in general, my audio is listenable and pretty clear however, if I jump on a call via Gmeets, zoom, or any other browser-based video conference application the other person's sound is crackling and robotic.
Youtube or any other browser-based audio is acceptable except for the low-quality issue mentioned above.
I have tried to fix it with alsamixer and PulseAudio, but I cannot make it to work, perhaps I am doing smth badly, not sure.
Another issue I have is that my mic has insane static noise issues, probably I need to install some kind of noise/static suppression driver/app, perhaps anyone has any suggestions or could help?
