    I had lots of issues with keyboard noises coming through while gaming.
    I tried Voicemeter Banana, but found it a bit too complicated.
    So I developed Noise Blocker ( https://closedlooplabs.com/noise-blocker ).
    You record samples of the offending noises (fan, keyboard, traffic, etc) then it actively block any matches from the incoming microphone audio.
    It’s a free trial download (1 hour daily usage).
    Hope it helps others!
