My Zen Q is not being detected by Audacity

Will my Zen Q work with Audacity? It works with traditional DAWs, but never gets recognized(scanned) on Audacity and doesn’t show on the ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ dropdown tabs. It is a Thunderbolt 3 connection.

And I’ll also add that I won’t be doing anything special on it. Only tracking/recording.

It is a Thunderbolt 3 connection.

You might have to check with the manufacturer. Audacity generally works with anything that uses regular Windows drivers. Audacity often has trouble with multi-tracking but stereo is usually OK. And, Audacity doesn’t support ASIO.*


  • Audacity doesn’t have a license to distribute it with ASIO but if you’re a programmer (or “hacker”) you can compile it with ASIO support.

Ok Thank you
