I was recording and playing back until I got this error. “Error while opening sound device. Please check the playback device settings and the project sample rate.” Everything seems to check out as far as I can tell, but perhaps I don’t know what to look for? Please help.

Everything was working perfectly and then suddenly?
Did your USB sound device become unplugged? Audacity will not know what to do if that happens.
Give us the whole list. Which computer, which OS-X, which Audacity (all three numbers), and how are you getting sound in and out?
We may know that now. Look to the right of their post.
You can look at this FAQ http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_errors.html#sound_device.
If that does not help, we’ll need all the information Koz asked you for. Are you doing overdubs?
