Conflicts with Discord audio output while in game menus (shops, inventory, etc.)

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can investigate your issue properly.

Issue Description:
My teammates are hearing me through my microphone (Yeti Blue Nano) in Discord very choppy, robotic, and unintelligible. This does not happen at any other times while playing Darktide. This can end up causing crashes (where an audio lag/stutter is rapidly repeated) if I talk for too long while in said menus.

My audio drivers are up to date. I am not using -any- 3rd party software to alter mic output. Just Discord and Darktide.

None of my friends are having this issue. But they have headsets or stand alone mics that are not my make/model.
