Audacity not recognizing Samson mike

win 10, dell precision3420, Samson track pro mike plugged into usb. When I go to settings and test the mike in Sound section, it works, but Audacity doesn’t recognize the mike. It says: error opening recording device error code 0 success. How do I get the program to recognize the mike?


Try using Host:WASAPI

Thanks - I saw during a google search a recommendation to close and restart Audacity but leave the mic on and the program would then recognize the mic. That solved it. The loud hum was feedback from the speakers - when I shut them off, it went away. I am new to recording audio, including this software and am glad I cleared that hurdle. On to the next flaming hoop.
