Chrome is Auto Adjusting the Microphone Level
1
When using my Blue Yeti Nano mic in Chrome my mic volume is auto adjusting from (55 = which is perfect) to 90+ which is unlistenable. 

I have made sure to uncheck the option in Windows > Sound settings to prevent any apps from taking control over the device and yet when I save it to 55 and then record or use the mic in Chrome it auto adjusts to 90+

I isolated this issue by testing it with Firefox and IE, and a desktop program Filmora and none of these apps adjust my mic.

Only when using Chrome.

I have this issue in Chrome when using Loom extension for screen recording
I also have this issue with screencastify extension for chrome
I also have this issue when just using Chrome with Google hangouts. 

Why is it doing this? Why is there not a setting I can turn off in Chrome under "microphone" to prevent this? I basically can no longer use Chrome for anything relating to recording video or audio or for calls / chat. 

I have tried everything imaginable to resolve this issue including uninstalling everything related, reinstalling, changing drivers and so on.

It seems that Chrome doesn't do this with a mic plugged into a phono jack but it does with a USB mic like the Blue Yeti Nano.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this? or if a bug can be fixed in Chrome or a setting made available to turn off whatever the hell is causing this?

Thanks 

A very stressed out guy who spent 5 hours trying to fix this issue.

Sun S. D. Tan, that button locks the gain of the channels (e.g. left and right) together. It doesn't lock the gain from being adjusted.
