Mic-in should “work” but it’s “wrong” because a line-level or headphone signal is about 100 times stronger and you’ll get poor quality. And, the mic input is usually mono.

Does you PC have line-in? (usually blue). Or some computers have switchable inputs and it will ask , “What did you plug-in?”

Make sure you select the Line-input as your Recording Device.

And make sure the line-input isn’t blocked by your Privacy Settings.

Hi. Have found line in and connected but still nothing. Checked all privacy and mic settings and they are all good. Press record and nothing happens. I’m at a loss🤷‍♂️

Are you sure you’re getting a signal out of the mixer? Do you have an amplifier, or a stereo? Or you can try the analog inputs on your TV, etc.

You can also try Listen To This Device to check if Windows is getting anything.

Or, you can try plugging something else into the computer (a CD/DVD player, or your phone, etc.).

Hi. Got it sorted. I hadn’t selected the line in😩. Thanks for your help.
