Unable to Select Specific Microphone

Issue Description:
Unable to select correct microphone during gameplay, windows default mic does not seem to impact selection.

Preferred solution would be option to select specific microphone from list in options menu, as the windows default mic often changes without user input.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Attach multiple microphones to PC (I currently have 4, a webcam microphone, a wireless antlion, an XLR mic running through a Behringer UMC202HD, and a microphone attached to my vive headset.)
  2. Select default microphone
  3. Launch game
  4. Check if microphone is correct (I’ve found this to only sometimes select the current default microphone)
