I am learning to do voiceovers and also learning new gear.
I have an Onyx Blackjack audio interface, and when i change mics or cables, I usually just unplug the audio interface since it doesn’t have an on/off switch, and I don’t want to damage my mic with a sudden power surge.
Just now I recorded on track in Audacity, but haven’t saved it yet. I unplugged my Onyx, changed mic cables, plugged back in the Onyx, and when I hit Record I get an error pop-up:
Error opening sound device. Try changing the audio host, recording device and the project sample rate.
Why am I getting this error?
I have macOS Sierra and Audacity v2.2.2
Never had this issue on my old Mac and with older version of Audacity.
If I quit out of Auacity and come back in, the problem disappears, but what is annoying is that often I have unsaved work that I do NOT want to save while I am swapping out mics and cables, and so to resolve this it forces me to save any scratch work which is a pain!
