Auto Gate on the mic even when Talk over is not engaged

Well, I am beginning to hate this controller more each day. Yes you can now lower the levels in the firmware but can you turn off the auto gate in the mic channels? This is really annoying. Listen to the mic thru headphones and you can really hear it. Maybe because the mic pre ■■■■■ so they found some trick to hide how bad they really are? What’s the solution? It also cause a slight ring just before it shuts off after you talk. I know I am not hearing things.
