Snowball USB microphone

never had any problem, recently bought a new MacBook Pro and after checking in both Audacity and in System preferences the microphone, get following reply when trying to record in Audacity (latest version)

Error when opening Sound Device.
Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate.

Never had this before. An solutions?
Project rate is set at (normal) 44100 Hz

Set Audacity for Mono. Koz

feel stupid - that was it :slight_smile:
many thanks,
