Voice Pickup/Inconsistency- 2.1.2 with Installer Windows 8

When using Audacity, I am receiving a lot of issues. When I speak in my normal tone into my mic, the software does not pick it up, or it does very lowly. Sometimes when I scream, my voice fades in and out when I listen to the recording. The waves that show your recording are always very concentrated and never like they should be. I just recently downloaded Audacity 2.1.2 with the installer and did not change any settings. With the default settings, I am getting this issue. My voice is barely heard, and adjusting mic levels, does not do anything. I am pretty sure the waves should be consistent and somewhat large. My waves however are sometimes a little tiny bit big, but mostly flat. I have attached a screenshot of a recording I created in which I was talking normally and then shouting at some times. Also, I have tested my mic on other programs and it works. This is an Audacity error. Thanks and Please Help. I am using Audacity 2.1.2 with installer version and Windows 8. Thanks

This is not an available option for me when I click on my microphone, there is no settings.

I have repeatedly tried the steps given to be in my first initial post and have not fixed the error. I am using Windows 8.1, audacity 2.1.2 and used the installer. I am using a Razer Kraken 7.1 surround sound headest and it’s built in microphone. I could not find the settings described to me and therefore couldn’t fix the issue. The program is barely recording my voice, and when I scream, it picks it up and then goes back down. I have tested the microphone on other programs and other testers and it works. This is an audacity error I believe. I also did not alter and microphone/audacity settings. I redone loaded and unistalled audacity a couple times and it doesn’t seem to give me a constant mic recording. The waves are so inconsistent and just low. Also adjusting the gain did nothing. Thanks and please help!!

Please do not start new topics on the same question. I merged the topics for you.

It is very unlikely to be an Audacity error, because Audacity does not do any manipulation of the input signal. You can satisfy yourself of that by recording with Windows Sound Recorder.

I believe there is a Synapse control panel if you installed that. Look at the settings in that, or ask Razer for assistance in choosing settings.
