I’ve just installed Audacity 2.2.4 on my iMac OS Catalina 10.15.7. The interface i’ve installed is a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 - 3rd. Gen.
The 4 boxes just under the menu bar are set to(from left to right) : Core audio - Scarlett2i2 USB - 1 (mono) recording channel - Scarlett2i2 USB
When Audacity opens I get a home page open. When i click on the Microphone icon & click start monitoring a window pops up stating: Error opening recording device. Error code 9986 Internal Port Audio error. I have clicked the ? and was not able to navigate to that error code or find a route to fix this issue. I used Audacity (relevant version of course) a lot about 6 years ago without any issues, and i’m desperate to be able to use it again, please help!
Thank you, yes I’ve now got to be able to monitor the microphone to set level, but then, when i press the Red record button nothing happens, no recording! No nothing! and no way of knowing what I may be doing wrong if anything!!! reaching the stage of trying another software
Thanks, I’ve checked that, and its enabled - but i’m going around in circles. Now gone back to error opening code 9986
I’ll shut down and reboot. All seems to work using Ableton lite but I don’t like that programme very much.
