Can't record vocals

After updating to the latest Audacity I can’t record from the mic for my radio show. I can lay down tracks fine - the software “sees” my external CSL box but there seems to be no input from the mic when I hit record. I have tried my husband’s sound box and that one, and the mic, work fine. Windows 10 mic settings are on allow for app use. Advice please!

After updating to the latest Audacity

Which one? There are two “latest” Audacitys.

Help menu > About.


Make sure you plug in the external device before starting Audacity. Otherwise, do Transport > Rescan Audio Devices.
