Muting in-built mic?

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

In the Finder, click on the Go menu and choose "Go to folder...". In the dialog, type in ~/Library/Application Support/audacity. Don't miss the "~" character as the start.

Hi Bill,
I have come up with a simple temporary solution to the problem. A small ball of Blu-Tak stuck over the mic inlet works wonders! It keeps out all but the loudest shout.
I tried using WavePad which did not pick up the mic, just as a test. I will not be using it though, I prefer the functionality of Audacity.
If we do come up with a solution, the Product Support lads at Audio-Technica U.K. would be pleased to know about it.
Thanks again for your input.
Best Regards,
ColStaff.

Hi Again,
Your last msg appeared as I sent my previous one.
Have done as you suggested and put Audacity.cfg in Trash for now, but without effect. Still In-Built Mic only option.
At least thanks to the Blu-Tak I can get on with some recording now.
Have a good week-end.
ColStaff.
