"mute microphone" no longer works


this shortcut mute stopped working after upgrading to fedor 38. I have easyeffects installed, everything was working before.

Now when I press the shortcut I get the message “your microphone is closed” but in fact it is not

if u click in my kde panel mute works

Looking at the first image there are 6 controls. 3 for the microphone and 3 for the system volume.
The cursor is pointing to the system volume mute control with the microphone mute control the bottom one.

Are you certain you are using the microphone mute?
