My audacity was just working fine on my Windows 10 computer. I just realized that I have a super old version and updated to the latest version. Now no audio devices are showing up. I checked windows and my blue yeti mic is set as the default mic. I restarted my computer. I tried transport = rescan audio devices. I shut down my computer. I plugged the mic into another USB port and opened Audacity again… NOTHING WORKS.
What must I do, Please help.
Try clicking “Reset Configuration” in the “Tools” menu, then restart Audacity.
Can you see a USB option for the recording device in the Device Toolbar?
Thank you so much, Steve for replying. Sorry for only coming back now, I don’t come near my computer on Sundays and it was a bit late Saturday night here by me to see your answer.
I tried that, it’s still not working.
I also removed Audacity completely and reinstalled it… Still did not work.
I found another answer where Windows might block it, it’s set to allow.
I looked in my Kaspersky if it’s blocking it, it’s on allow.
So I don’t know what to do, I’ve tried everything
The devices are completely empty.
Are you referring to “permission to access microphone”?
I’m not sure if you received my last reply.
On your question: Are you referring to “permission to access microphone”? Yes, that one.
I’ve tried everything I can think off. All the other things in the forum where advice was given, I tried.
Please help, I need Audacity.
What audio devices does your computer have (including USB, firewire, etc)
I took a screenshot from Windows, it’s easier than for me to try to remember all of them because there are a few funny ones. (see attached)
The funny thing is, is that Audacity worked just fine before I updated to the latest version. But the version I had was super old. I can’t remember right now which one it was, but it was something like 2.04 or something.
What I did now was I copied an old version of Audacity from my laptop (version 2.1.3) to my computer. Now it’s working fine. Maybe I should not use the newer versions?
I don’t know. My audios are usually very soft, why I don’t know because I use a Blue Yeti and it’s supposed to be a great mic. Do you think it’s voice meeter that’s causing the problem?
It could be. I’m not very familiar with VoiceMeeter (I rarely use Windows), but it’s a complex piece of software that integrates tightly into the sound system - if it isn’t configured or working correctly, then it could certainly interfere with Audacity.
Since I copied and uploaded the older version of Audacity to my computer it’s working fine. I think I’ll stay on the older version for now to be safe.
Thank you for your help and your time. I still don’t know what is wrong because on the older version I’ve got voice meeter and it’s still working, so I truly don’t know. This is version 2.1.3. I attached an image of all the devices in Audacity, which is empty when I try to use the newest version.
