The Device Toolbar gives me nothing but blank selection drop downs for everything (Audio host, recording device, etc) with nothing at all to select. So I do it the other way and go to Edit > Preferences > Devices and I get the same no options, the drop down menus for interface, recording and playback are all blanked out with no available selections, just an empty drop down menu. What is going on?
Look in the Window “Sound” settings. Are there any audio devices enabled?
Which version of Audacity? (Look in “Help menu > About Audacity”).
Are any other audio apps running? (including background processes such as Skype)
That was it, input device was just disabled, thanks!
