A conundrum. I have a Rode Procaster mic running through a Xenyx Q8902USB into Audacity 2.3.3 on Windows 10, which I am using to record the vocal track for a radio show.
If that track is the only one then I have no problem. However, introduce music tracks (MP3), and when I try to record, I get the error message:
‘error opening recording device. error code: -9997 Invalid sample rate’.
As a workaround I can open a new Audacity recording, record the vocal and then cut and paste the recording onto the original vocal track, however it is really irritating aligning the vocal to the music tracks.
I have looked through the forum, and all the settings seem to be as recommended. Any help would be gratefully received.
