it simply doesn’t pick up my (internal) microphone…
…Digital Audio Interface (USB3)
The USB interface is NOT your internal microphone.
If you want to use the internal microphone and you’re using the laptop speakers, what’s the interface for?
And if you want to use an external microphone plugged into the interface, does that work with other applications? If not, tell use exactly what interface and microphone you’re using. If you have a studio condenser mic, make sure 48V phantom power is turned-on on the interface.
Thanks for the pointer Trebor. I went back to it and tried different selections and eventually got a hit, thank you.
For anyone else in the same position who might stumble into this frustration, this would be my advice…
Between host / playback device / recording device there were, for me, 20 permutations of options and only 1 worked. For you, there may be more or less permutations depending on what’s on your own device.
If you don’t understand what each means it really means having the patience to methodically go through the permutations one by one until you get a hit.
