3rd and 4th Mic not working with Steinberg UR44

Hey guys, I am new to the forum but really need help with figuring out how to add a 3rd and 4th mic in audacity using my steinberg ur44 audio interface. I have a podcast and want to have more than just two people on it. Any help would be amazing!!!

Audacity can only record from one “device” at a time.

For compatibility, manufacturers of 4 channel devices generally create split a 4 channel device into two 2-channel WDM device drivers. Some manufacturers also provide an additional “multi-channel” WDM device driver that gives access to all 4 channels at the same time. You need to select the multi-channel device driver (if there is one).

Unfortunately, some manufacturers don’t bother to provide a multi-channel WDM device driver, assuming that everyone will be using ASIO, but Audacity can’t ship with ASIO due to licensing issues.

I don’t have a Steinberg UR44, so I don’t know what drivers they provide. You will need to look through the settings in the Device Toolbar
to see if any combination of settings allow you to set the number of “recording channels” to 4.
