[SOLVED] Error opening sound device when trying to record.

I am trying to record from an audio tape using a Behringer audio interface. When I click the record button in Audacity it will not record and the error message “Error opening sound device” appears.
I would be grateful for any help.

Try to check two things:

  1. The interface was connected BEFORE starting Audacity.

  2. Audacity has permission to access the “microphone” (Windows 10 will see the interface as a USB microphone).

It was the microphone access that was the issue.

Many thanks for the advice.
