error whilst opening sound device" message [SOLVED]


I am using Mac OS X 10.9.4 - And audacity 2.0.5.

I have a mixer going into a UCA202 Behringer and to the USB on Mac.

My system settings are Set to the USB for the input and The internal speaker for the output.

I am getting error message “error whilst opening sound device. Please check input device settings and project sample rate” Project rate is 44100.

Can anyone help please?

Thank you

Has it ever worked?

Open /Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup and ensure on the Input tab that UCA is set to a 2 ch 44100 Hz choice.

Disconnect and reconnect the UCA202. Connect to an empty USB port, not to a USB hub. Then restart Audacity.

Change the USB cable and/or restart the Mac if necessary.


Sorted. Restarted everything and fixed. Thank you Gale. :smiley:
